Warm Buttons

I'd been seeing variations on this theme for several months before I stumbled across Buttons at Buns in My Oven. But these were clearly the most adorable and tasty sounding version. They are dead simple to make but are absolutely addictive.

Pretzels (squares or circles)
Hershey's Kisses

Note: The number of Hershey kisses will dictate how many buttons you make, look at the serving size and number of servings on the bag you buy to determine how many you will get per bag.

PREHEAT oven to 200F

UNWRAP Hershey's kisses

PLACE parchment paper on a baking sheet.

ARRANGE pretzels on top of parchment paper.

PLACE one unwrapped Hershey's kiss on top of each pretzel.

BAKE for 5-10 min to soften chocolate. (5 min for circular pretzels, 10 for square ones)

REMOVE from oven and SQUISH one M&M on top of each Hershey kiss.


Packing Buttons

My Thoughts
1. These are incredibly versatile little treats. You can use any number of the different kisses currently available (mint, white chocolate stripes, dark chocolate, etc) or swap for a different chocolate candy entirely (I've seen this done with Rolos, but you could use pretty much anything small and chocolate). You can change out the M&Ms for nuts, bits of candied fruit, or even use a spoon to squish the chocolate and fill the impression with coconut.

2. This is a treat that is much more than the sum of its parts, being far more delicious than eating each component alone. But this also makes it far easier to eat more than you realize!

3. We used buttery pretzels for these, since that was at the store and it was delicious. I think I will stick to using buttery pretzels.

4. These also work great in a party mix. Make up a batch and mix with some unaltered pretzels of the same type.

5. We filled up small treat bags and handed these out to people we wanted to give a little something to. Much quicker than baking large plates of cookies!
