Zebra Boobs (aka Zoobs)

I'm sure I've said this before, but I am not a baker.  I will bake cookies and the occasional cupcake for birthdays, but I am not a sweet tooth by any means.  That doesn't mean that the rest of my family follows my taste buds and because my life's work is to please them (ha!) I will make sweet treats to make them happy.

Christmas brings about a whole flood of cookies.  Way too many than one home could ever need, but thankfully there are friends and co-workers to share with!  And I especially love treats that require no baking.  Zebra Boobs fit the bill.  I'm sure these snacks have a more family friendly title, but we call them Zoobs around the house.


Simple, salty-sweet treats that take 15 minutes to make.  The might not even last that long once they're made!



Start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees (or as low as it will go) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  I've never made them without parchment, and I'm sure it could be done, but I have a feeling it will be more mess than it's worth.  The roll is well worth the time saving in cleaning and mess!

Settle in with your bag of Hugs and start unwrapping (I use the classic white chocolate, but you could use the new candy cane or other flavor - go nuts!)  Lay out circle pretzels in a single layer and set a Hug into each one.  Don't worry if the Hug doesn't sit super flush, they'll melt and snuggle right in to their new pretzel home.

Slide your pointy Zoobs into the oven and keep a close eye on them.  You only want them to start to soften, not liquify - this process will maybe take 5 minutes, tops.



When your Zoobs are soft, quickly drop a M&M into the point and gently press down.  Once every Zoob has a MMipple, slide your whole tray into the fridge to chill until set.  I would say that you could also use the great outdoors as your giant chiller, but when I made this batch, the high was ZERO here in Minnesota and I didn't want frostbitten Zoobs.  No one wants that.

Those sound so simple and seriously delicious. I'm definitely giving them a try this year!
