  • 35 pretzel snaps
  • 35 unwrapped hugs, any flavor of choice
  • About 1 tsp per snap colored sprinkles, we used already mixed red, white and blue, found at the local market or online


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside for just a few minutes.
  2. While the oven is heating up. Unwrap the hugs and get your sprinkles opened up with a teaspoon ready.
  3. Lay out the pretzel snaps on lined cookie sheet. Place a Hug in the center of each snap and bake for about 3 to 4 minutes. You will see the chocolate get shiny. Try not to over heat the chocolate.
  4. Take out of the oven and carefully place cookie sheet on cooling rack on counter. Now, toss sprinkles over each chocolate snap. Let sit on counter to cool completely.
  5. When they are completely cooled, 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). Make an extra batch and give to someone special.
