Sweet and Salty Chocolate Valentine Pretzel Snaps

It’s that time of year again. Valentines Day! I usually call it “Chocolate Day” Well, this little treat is no different. It’s got the sweet and salty too. With only 3 ingredients you have a fun and cute treat for the ones you love. Great for gift giving to teachers. The kids can easily help make these and be proud to hand them out.


Sweet & Salty Chocolate Valentine Pretzel Snaps

Nutritionals are approximate for Hugs and Kisses. Candy Melts would be a little lower in fat and calories. Per snap – cal 48.3, fat 2.3 g, carbs 5.1 g, fiber .2 g, sugars 3.9 g, protein .5 g

Ingredients: I didn’t give amounts. You decide how many you want to make at a time.

  • Pretzel Snaps
  • Hershey Hugs and Kisses
  • Wilton White Chocolate Pink Melts
  • M&M Candies
  • Colored Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside for just a few minutes.
  2. While the oven is heating up. Unwrap the Kisses and Hugs chocolates. Lay out the amount of Candy Melts you plan on using. Get your sprinkles opened up with a teaspoon ready.
  3. Lay out the pretzel snaps on lined cookie sheets. Place a candy in the center of each snap and bake for about 2 to 4 minutes. You will see the chocolate get shiny. Try not to over heat the chocolate. (The Candy Melts should only take about 2 minutes since it’s much thinner.)
  4. Take out of the oven and carefully place cookie sheets on cooling rack on counter. Now, press M&M and sprinkles over each chocolate snap. Let sit on counter to cool completely. Place in fridge for 15 minutes to completely  firm up.
  5. Place in an air tight container or zip lock bag. They will stay for up to 4 days on the counter (If they last that long).
