HUGS & KISSES
This Sweet Treat is an ideal "care package" to that special someone: Start with a layer of pretzels on a cookie sheet. We prefer the "Butter Snaps", they are in the shape of a square with a 'grid pattern'. Place an unwrapped Hershey's Kiss or Hug ontop of each pretzel. Bake for 2-3 minutes at 350. (Note: the white chocolate "Hug" will melt quicker than the milk chocolate "Kiss".) While the chocolate is still hot, place an M&M in the center of each Hug or Kiss... this time of year, we use the Valentine's bags, with pink, red, and white M&M's. Allow to cool, and they may be kept in the freezer. Unwrapping the kisses is a great project for "little helpers" - but be sure to buy extra chocolate!
AND GUESS WHAT??? On this day - February 9th, in 1894, Milton S. Hershey founded Hershey's!! Check out more about that wonderful place called Chocolate World .
