Burnt Nipples

Yes you read that correctly.
I was going to make these Pretzel Hugs today.
I guess I left them in there a bit too long, as you can see, they got a tad overcooked.
I thought that even though they were a bit over cooked, maybe they would still taste okay.
Nope, they were pretty hard….even though Wayne still ate a couple and said they were fine.
This guy never complains about my cooking, lol.

Now let me show you the steps on how to make them properly.
First tip….don't walk away from the oven ;)
Put all of the pretzels on parchment paper on a cookie sheet (or baking sheet)
You can also use regular pretzels, I like these square ones, as they are fun.

Then unwrap a heck of a lot of these hugs chocolates.
Like the money shot ;)

Place one hug chocolate on each pretzel.

Another money shot…haven't you missed those ;)

Set your oven at 200 heat these up for about 6 minutes.
Now here comes the hard part…don't leave the oven.
Watch that the chocolate softens, it doesn't melt flat.
Then take them out of the oven and put a candy on the top and flatten out the chocolate as you do this.
Oh by the way…..these are Kristy's
I got a bit upset with mine, so I took a can of Coke and watched a movie ;)

I did make an awesome pulled chicken for supper in the crock pot.
I also made 5 minute fudge after supper.
So I think I redeemed myself from the burnt nipples, that I threw in the garbage by the way ;)

I hope you all had a very Creative Tuesday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Oh man, all that unwrapping for nothing! I have to say, when I saw the picture of these on FB, it gave me quite the chuckle :)

  2. Sometimes our cooking adventures don't always turn out!

  3. OMG...That is perfectly offensive! HAHA...and they look it too!

  4. This made me laugh!! Kristy's look delicious!! Thanks for the instructions!! Have a great day :)

  5. I would have been devastated and there might be something in the coke. Thanks for the instructions on making them, My hubby would have ate them too.

  6. OMG! That picture made me literally LOL!

  7. LOL - love the title - but thanks for sharing the process. Aren't our men great though - I made mince pies a few years ago and pastry really isn't my forte, so they came out so hard I'm sure they could have built a house with them, or maybe even break some toes if they were dropped LOL! Andy ate them :-) This year I am buying pre-made tart shells so I don't have to worry about making the pastry :-)

  8. You're too funny, Tracy! Glad everything else you made was a win! :)


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
