Preheat the oven to 200°F.
Unwrap the Hershey's hugs and set aside.
Using a large baking sheet, place a silicone baking mat on the sheet, and place the pretzels on the mat in rows. You can put them all pretty in lines or just fit them all on there.
Place an unwrapped Hershey’s hug on the center of each pretzel.
Put the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until the chocolate is soft but not melted all flat.
Remove the baking pan and gently push the M&M's on top of each Hershey’s hug.
Let them cool for the chocolate to harden. You can also place them in the fridge or freezer if you’re in a hurry.
You can use any amount of the ingredients in equal numbers. You could make smaller or larger pretzel M&M batches easily.
Unwrapping the candy is a great place for little hands to help out!
You can also use parchment paper. The mat doesn’t slide so it is preferable, though.
Don’t melt the chocolates fully. They should still be standing and a bit shiny but not fully melted. You want them soft enough to push the M&M’S on them. You can always pop them back into the oven for a minute more if you need to.
You can put more than one M&M on each mini pretzel if you’d like.
Be sure to let the chocolate set fully before you package or store them, otherwise, they’ll smudge and stick.
