There are few better combinations than salty and sweet!  My children and I wanted to make some festive fall treats. We decided to go with some treats that are so easy to make, your little ones can be a huge part of the process.


1) 2 bags of Hershey’s hugs (striped kisses)
2) 1 bag of candy corn
3) 1 bag of waffle shaped pretzels

Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees F. Place the pretzels on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Be sure to line it with parchment paper or silpat because when the chocolate melts slightly, it will stick.

Grab your favorite helper, and un-wrap the foil from all of the hugs.

Place one hug chocolate on top of each pretzel.

Place the baking sheet in the 170 degree oven.  They will melt very quick — they only take about 4 minutes, so watch them closely.

When the hugs have been in the oven about 4 minutes and start to look shiny, remove them from the oven.

Place the candy corn on top of the hug chocolate, and gently press it in. If the chocolate seems a little too melted, then immediatly put the tray into the freezer for about five minutes. Take the tray out of the freezer, then try to place the candy corn into the  chocolate hug.

Serve them at your holiday party, or package them up for friends!
