  • 12 ounces chocolate hugs milk chocolate hugged by white creme
  • 77 pieces pretzel snaps do not use butter flavored
  • 7 ounces M&M's Easter chocolate candies


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
    Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
    Unwrap chocolate hugs or chocolate kiss varieties.
    Line baking sheet with pretzel snaps in even rows.
    Top pretzel snaps with a piece of chocolate candy in the center.
    Bake in oven 5-6 minutes. Candy should still hold its shape. Take sheet pan out and test a kiss by placing an M&M in the center. If chocolate hug easily flattens, they are done. If the chocolate hug doesn't flatten, bake at 30-second intervals but do not over bake.
    Place a chocolate M&M in center of chocolate hugs.
    Allow chocolate to set until firm by placing in refrigerator for 10 minutes then store in an airtight container.
