two for the price of one...

So today is your lucky day. Two recipes, for the price of one. And since I don't charge people to read my blog, I am sure you are completely unamused by my use of cliches. So onward!

The tin above contains two wonderfully delicious, simple and impressive holiday treats. The first uses Hershey's Hugs, M&M's, and wreath pretzels. The second uses rolos, pecan or walnuts, and wreath pretzels.

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees. Line pan with parchment paper. Lay out wreath pretzels. Put a rolo or hug in each wreath. Bake for about 5 minutes, checking with the back of a spoon to ensure they are melted. Remove from oven. If using hugs, place on M&M on top, pressing the chocolate into the shape of the wreath. If using a rolo, press in your nut of choice.

I place the entire pan, which is not hot due to low cooking temperature, in the freezer for about 5 minutes. Remove from freezer, pick up parchment paper and shake treats gently into a bowl. You may also lift them off one by one but they are pretty resilient!

Makes a great gift, looks beautiful on the table, and kids go gaga for those sweet little numbers!

Two more sleeps till Christmas eve!
