Hugs- not Kisses

This weekend I wanted to make a little treat that was easy, but yummy.  I decided to make a little dessert that involves pretzels and hugs candy.  Have you heard of hugs?  I cannot believe how many people have not heard of them. They are like Hershey kisses, but not because they have vanilla swirls. Ok...just got side-tracked  because my disbelief that some people don't know what they are haha.

So, how to make this little bite of goodness:

1 bag of Hugs
1 bag of Waffle Pretzels

(^Easy enough)

1. Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees
2. Lay wax paper on a cookie sheet for easy removal
3. Place pretzels on cookie sheet and top with a hug
4. Put the treats into the oven for two minutes
5. Remove and let cool on rack for one minute
6. Give the treats a little "hat" aka: a pretzel top (they do not like being exposed)
7. Put finished product into the fridge to cool
8. Enjoy! (As if I even need to state this step) ;)

**Important note: Do not leave these in the oven any longer then 2 minutes and make sure you only let them cool for 1 minute OR they will melt all over and be messy**

And here is the finished product! YUM! I had some friends over after I made these and they loved them!

Oh...something random- I was in the grocery store yesterday, just minding my own business, and I walked past this lady, who was on her phone, and she did a double take when looking at me then put her phone to the side and said "You look like that girl in the movies! Are you in the movies?" I'm not sure WHO this woman could be talking about.  I laughed then shook my head no and said "thank you"...although I'm not sure it was a compliment. Who could be certain (only her, I guess).  I'm obviously a spitting image of someone if she wanted to interrupt her phone call to tell me this. I should have offered my autograph. Next time I'll be prepared :)
