Cutest Halloween Treat EVER!

The following post is from our new site contributor, Emily.

I have seen so many Halloween treat ideas, but nothing THIS easy! Nowadays I try my best to find a creative activity to do  with my 3 year old that she can actually do! With not much time on our hands this treat smacked me across the face and begged me to recreate.

Halloween Treat Ingredients

  • Mini Pretzels
  • Hershey Hugs
  • Candy Corn

Preparation Directions

{Step 1} Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

{Step 2} Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.

{Step 3} Place pretzels on the cookie sheet, not touching.

{Step 4} Unwrap Hershey’s Kisses and place on top of pretzels and then place filled cookie sheet in oven.

{Step 5} Bake for 3-5 minutes but NO LONGER. You will know they are ready when the kisses start to get shiny.

{Step 6} Remove from oven and gently place candy corn on top of the kisses, pushing down ever so gently.

{Step 7} Cool and then transfer to serving platter or wrap up as gifts.

I placed mine in the fridge for a few minutes to speed up the cooling process and it worked perfectly! Enjoy and spread the Hugs!

    we take a mix of candy corn, chex cereal, pretzles, peanuts, and m&m’s and coat then in melted white chocolate. spread the mix on a cookie sheet to harden and cool in the fridge. Break apart into chunks and put into cellophane gift bags for teachers and bus drivers.
