If you’re looking for a fantastic salty and sweet treat this Halloween, try making these three-ingredient bite-sized Candy Corn Pretzel Hugs! They are SO easy to make and taste as good as they look. They make a perfect party treat, too!
Grab a bag of candy corn, square-shaped pretzels, and Hershey’s Hugs and let’s make a batch or THREE of these addicting little bites! This would be a smart recipe to utilize any leftover Halloween candy as well.
- Not a fan of candy corn at all? Try experimenting with other varieties of candy like M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces.
- Make a creative turtle pretzel bite variation! Use a pretzel square with Rolo candy and a pecan. So yummy!
- Use this recipe as a homemade gift idea! Fill a small mason jar with these pretzel candies and gift to friends and family as a thoughtful treat.
Candy Corn Pretzel Hugs
Make these sweet and salty treats for your next fall event! They are the perfect tiny bites for your friends and family to enjoy.
- Candy Corn
- Pretzel Squares
- Hershey's Hugs Chocolates (or substitute with regular Hershey's Kisses)
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap Hug chocolates and place on top of pretzels.
There are about 80 Hugs in a 12 ounce bag so I used 80 candy corn pieces and 80 pretzels.
Bake at 300 degrees for about 4-5 minutes until the chocolate becomes soft. Remove from oven and quickly place candy corn on top of the chocolates.
Press down carefully. Serve when cool and the chocolate is firm.
Consider putting the tray in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.
I love the crunchy texture with the soft candy!
I am actually not a huge candy corn fan but I really love that the saltiness of the pretzels balances out the sweetness of the chocolate and candy corns. And be warned – these are super addicting!
I’ve been making a variation of this at Christmas-time for years. I use regular Hershey’s kisses with red & green M&M’s. I’ve also done the Rolo/pecan version…everyone loves them, and they are SOOOOOOOOO easy!!
Oh I love that idea- I’m gonna try it for Christmas. Thanks Faith!
If I can’t find the unwrapped Hershey’s Kisses (which take forever to unwrap), I just use the Hershey’s drops instead. Easy-peasy.
I’ve also learned (the hard way) that if you leave them in the oven just a little too long, the chocolate hardens up and makes pressing the candies into it very difficult.
The halloween m&ms would be so cute on top of these.
I have three words for you all… Holiday. Mint. M&Ms. =) So good as the topper to the pretzel & hug.
Oh yum! Great idea ❤️
What kind of mint?
My family has 2 members allergic to chocolate, so I plan to substitute a big marshmallow. I think it would work well.
My kiddos love helping make these! Super simple, and you can make them for every season! We love the seasonal M&Ms on top of these! Very easy and very addicting to eat!
Thanks for sharing, BRave!
