Soooooo Valentine’s day is coming up soon. Valentine’s day has never been a super significant holiday in my book, but now that I have a food blog, I find myself wanting to bake and make a zillion new chocolate desserts and heart-shaped treats. Go figure.
I don’t know if this recipe really qualifies as baking, considering it’s only two ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to make. These treats are delicious though, and will make for a perfect Valentine’s day gift!
Whether you use these delicious pretzel bites to fill treat bags to give to all your friends (who will love you forever), or to fill a sweet Valentine’s day dessert box for give to your boo, these little snacks is won’t let you down!
Perfect for the college budget, easy on the schedule, and not to mention cute! What’s not to love? 🙂
I hope this makes your Valentine’s day a little more stress-free, and a lot more lovely.
- 1-2 bags of unwrapped Hershey kisses/ hugs
- 1 bag of square pretzels
- Preheat your oven to 350 F˚ and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
- Arrange several rows of pretzels on the baking sheet so that there is enough room in between each pretzel to easily pick up one square without touching the others.
- Place a Hershey kiss (or hug) on top of each pretzel square, directly centered, and bake for 1-2 minutes.*
- Remove the tray and top each Hershey kiss with another pretzel, pressing the partially melted kiss down until it evenly covers the entire square.
- Refrigerate the pretzel bites for 10 minutes and then devour! (or share with your valentine….)
- Hershey hugs melt a little differently and quicker than solid milk or dark chocolate. Pay attention and bake them accordingly!
- Pay attention to the Hershey kisses while they are in the oven. They melt very quickly and will become impossible to deal with if completely melted.
- To test and see if your chocolate pretzels are done baking, open the door to your oven, and see if you can easily flatten out a Hershey kiss under the pressure of a fresh pretzel square. If the kisses are done baking they will easily flatten out with pressure. If they need more time you may be able to collapse the peak of the kiss, but not much more.
