Raspberry Pretzel M&M Hugs

Raspberry Hugs. Raspberry. I didn't know these existed until I was checking out at Target one day last week and saw a bunch of Hershey's Kisses bags stacked up in front of my checkout line. And then I was like, Oh MAN, I bet those are good. And they are. Or were. Because they're currently all gone.

I made some of these pretzel M&M snacks on Christmas and they were so addictive. I used regular Hershey's kisses and the candy cane kisses with regular and mint chocolate M&Ms.

So, when I saw these Raspberry Hershey's Hugs I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.

These are so extremely easy. It took me 20 minutes tops to make two trays of them. You just line up the pretzels, place the kisses on top, pop them in the oven for a few minutes, and press the M&Ms on top!

My friends got together to watch the Super Bowl yesterday and I brought these. I'm not sure why I was hoping there would be some left when I went home because why would there be? I've been thinking about making some more, but I'm afraid I'll eat them all myself.

1 bag of Raspberry Hershey's Hugs
1 bag of Valentine's milk chocolate M&Ms
1 bag of Snyder's Snaps pretzels

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Arrange pretzels on the baking sheet and place one Raspberry Hug on each pretzel.
  • Bake for 3-4 minutes. (My oven runs hotter than it's supposed to, so I baked mine for 3 minutes.)
  • Remove baking sheet from oven and let it sit for a minute or too. 
  • Place an M&M on one pretzel/Hug. If the chocolate is too melty and it runs over the side of the pretzel, wait another minute or two before continuing. I had to play around with mine a little.


  1. These are adorable! I love that photo of them all lined up before the hugs melt, so pretty. These would be an awesome snack to munch on while doing hw or at work :D

    1. Thanks, Jess! They do make an awesome snack. Except mine didn't last very long, haha. :)

  2. These are such a cute V-Day treat! I need to make a trip to Target to get some of these...AKA another reason to go to Target. Haha! Yummy.

    1. Thanks, Rachel! And I know what you mean. I already go to Target too much as it is, haha. :)
