Sweet and Salty Valentine Treat

Heidi Milton

Valentine’s Day is almost upon us, though I’m not sure what happened to January!  We don’t really go “all out” for Valentine’s Day in my home, but I do enjoy making a special treat for my people to celebrate the day.  Today I’m sharing an easy sweet and salty treat that’s become one of our favorites.

This is as easy as it comes!

What you need:

  • mini pretzel twists
  • Hershey Huggs
  • Valentine M & M’s

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees and on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, lay out your pretzels.  Place one Hershey Hugg candy on top of each pretzel.  Pop into the oven and let the Huggs begin to melt.  This took about 5 minutes in my oven, but I think mine tends to run hot.  Before they’re completely melted pull them out of the oven and drop M & M’s on top of each one.  I did these one or two at a time and then went back and filled in gaps while the Huggs were still soft.  Then I popped the cookie sheet into my fridge for about 20 minutes to completely harden them.  You could just let them sit out to harden, but in my house, things left to cool/harden on the kitchen island have a way of disappearing.  🙂

These are so cute put in little cellophane bags… my family loves them!
