Default Problem teaching 'Fetch'

My pup is now 5 months old and her training has been doing really well. The other day I decided to start teaching her fetch but have been having some problems teaching her the concept.

When I throw a toy she will run to it, grab it and run back to me. Then just before she reaches she swerves to the side and starts playing/chewing the toy.
The next time I tried I got the treats out and when she came to me with the toy I quickly grabbed her attention and in return for the toy I gave her gave her the treat.

When I through the toy again she ran to it but didn't grab it. Instead she just ran back to me and sat there expecting a treat. I've tried a million times but she just keeps doing that.

What am I doing wrong and what can I do to teach her fetch properly.
Should I teach her drop first or use a lead. Thanks
