St. Patrick’s Day is this Saturday and I’ve got a simple treat you can make with your kiddos! All it takes is some pretzels, some Hershey Hugs candies, and some M&M’s. And in just 10 minutes you’ve got a fun little treat you can keep all for yourselves or bag ‘em up and hand ‘em out at school or at the office (which is what I intend to do!). I love to give little treats out to my coworkers to say I’m thinking about you! (:
Ok, so here’s the how to:
First, have your toddler sort out the green M&M’s for this St. Patty’s Day treat. (You could use other colors for other holidays – red and blue on the fourth of July, or color coordinate for a shower or birthday party too!)
Next, place a sheet of foil on a baking sheet and have the toddler place pretzels on the baking sheet. Then, have the toddler unwrap the Hugs and place them on top of the pretzels. Be prepared to have said toddler eat several handfuls of the ingredients. (:
Place the pretzels with Hugs into a preheated, 200 degree oven for 5 minutes.
Push an M&M into the Hugs. They will be a little warm. You may prefer to do this step yourself but my toddler did help without being burned.
Allow to cool on the counter or pop into the fridge for faster cooling. I wrapped mine in these cute natural brown wax paper bags (I found them at Earth Fare) with some green raffia ribbon. Easy peasy – done in a flash.
