Valentine Hugs

Here is a quick review of this past week's class:
First, I shared one of our fave treats-Pretzel Hugs!  There are only three ingredients:

Square pretzels-the only brand I have found so far is Snyder's of Hanover Snaps.


and Hershey's Hugs.


 Put all the pretzels on a cookie sheet or pan that has been lined with parchment or aluminum foil.
Then put an unwrapped Hug in the center of each pretzel.  Put into the oven at 200 degrees F. for about 5 minutes, or until the Hug is soft enough to push flat.

Put an M&M in the center of each Hug, pressing the melted Hug flat as you do so.  Let them cool, or if you are impatient like me, and it's winter, put them outside for a few minutes.

That is it!  Three ingredient crack.  Seriously, these are very addicting.  You can't eat just one.  Or twenty.  The worst part of this recipe is unwrapping all the Hugs.  And waiting for them to cool.  And this is a treat you can do every season because the M&M colors change!  Also, it is good with Rolos in the middle instead of Hugs.

We also made some super easy valentine projects:

This picture is from and includes a tutorial if you need to review.  Also, she has a free template printable on there for the wrapper.  The only thing I did different was make the edges straight and tape them instead of cutting a slit and making a tab.  You can find the post HERE
