day 295: easter pretzel hugs

easter pretzel hugs :)
day 295 and it's getting oh so close to the easter holidays so i am making more inspired easter treats today.  ages ago i made pretzel hugs for p365 (day 41!) and they were OH SO GOOD ... the combination between sweet and salty is AMAZING.  as such, i have made them over and over again and the surprise is that adults love them just as much as kids :)

so when i saw this easter version of pretzel hugs on pinterest i pinned it immediately knowing i was definitely going to recreate them!  they are pinned to my easter in autumn board and come from the curvy carrot, such a cute name for a website and the photos are stunning.

this is such an easy easter gift to make you simply need pretzels, mini easter eggs that are candy coated and chocolate melts.  i used white chocolate melts as there is milk chocolate in the candy mini eggs.

start with a layer of pretzels in an oven tray

cover each pretzel with a chocolate melt

put them in a warm oven for three minutes and then take out and immediately add a mini egg to the melted chocolate

then bag them up ready to gift ... definitely eat some as you are undertaking this last step ;)

outcome: so cute and they came out so well i gift bagged them to gift as part of some easter basket goodies.  these will not be the only batch of these i make this week :)

my thanks to the curvy carrot for providing a perfect easter edition of the pretzel hugs so i can continue to enjoy them during another holiday season ... teehee :)

I was looking at the original hugs on your Pinterest board the other day. I introduced my coworker, Natasha, to it the other day (think she's now following you) and I have definitely created a monster!! LOL!

This version looks super yummy too. Really, how can you go wrong with Mini Eggs? :)
