HMDWL 42! We love hot wine and other hot seasonal beverages, festive ice cube shapes, and Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses.

Mary Ann’s Pretzel Hugs Thingies

  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (Mary Ann has used foil in a pinch).
  • Cover with a single layer of pretzels. She uses Seyfert’s Extra Dark Extra Salty Beer Pretz-Os, but they’re hard to find. You want small round ones, but you could try square as well.
  • Put a Hershey’s hug in the center of each pretzel. You could also use Rollos or the caramel filled Hershey Kisses. Plain regular kisses don’t melt as well, and won’t work.
  • Put in a 350 degree oven for about 2 minutes until softened but NOT melted down.
  • Take out and place an M&M in the center of each, and press down the M&M.

Thank you for the recipe, Mary Ann!

    I love the Egg Nog Latte! I wait all year for the Autumn/Winter Starcrack drinks. Tall is the perfect size of these Starcrack drinks. I am going to go looking for Grog/HOt Spiced Wine somewhere here in Dallas.

    I love you guys. Seriously!

    Oh, it's the holidays, you guys have to talk about how much you love holiday spectaculars! NYC has 'em all! The Radio City show, A Christmas Carol (once upon a time; now it's the Grinch!) and the really awesome light shows at places like Grand Central Station…the candelight chorus at Columbia…so much! Ack. Love 'em all.

    Oh my God! I totally remember the pretzel hug thingies from the Cranium night! Soooo good! I think I might try and make some to take to the Bazarko family Christmas this year. I only hope that they turn out as well as Mary Ann's. She is the pretzel hug thingy godess.

    Also, I have to say that I reall enjoy the following…


    bring it.

    I've made the pretzel things with the Rollos, and they are super super yummy!! I think I've had them with regular kisses before also, but never with the hugs… Now, I am almost tempted to go to the store and buy some Rollos, pretzels and M&Ms for some yummy goodness…
