Place cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 2 minutes, just until the candies start to look shiny.

Then, remove from oven and gently press a 2nd butter snap pretzel on top of each Hersheys hug to make a sandwich.

Transfer the baking sheet to the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set.

Once the candies have set, add red candy melts to a microwave safe bowl, and melt according to package directions. I usually heat for 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between each session.

Repeat for the pink candy melts in a separate bowl.

Dip each cooled pretzel sandwich into the pink or red melted chocolate, and sprinkle with heart sprinkles as you go so they will stick to the chocolate before it sets.
