Thursday mornings after dropping my big two at school, I've been taking the littlest and meeting up with a friend to visit. It was at our visit last week that she mentioned she was making a Pinterest treat for Valentines. I have a Pinterest account, but don't use it frequently. The treat involved chocolate and pretzels. With a weakness for the combination of salty and sweet, I asked her to send me the 'pin'.
These are so good I can't properly describe them. I do know almost everytime I walk by the fridge I pop one into my mouth. (I found at room temperature they tend to stay too soft).
First, get some little people to do the legwork for you of taking off all the wrappers from the Hershey Hugs.
While they were doing that (with their Dad's help), I assembled the pretzels on a cookie sheet lined with parchment, and heated the oven to 200F.
Put a Hugs in the center of each pretzel, bake in the oven for 3 minutes, then press a smartie down onto the centre.
I let ours sit for a couple minutes, then placed the cookie sheet into the freezer to set them. Once set, I've stored ours in a tupperware in the fridge.
Yum and enjoy!
