Hershey Kiss Buttons!

Hershey Kisses (You can use regular kisses, hugs, or any of the special variety)
Round Wheel Pretzels or Waffle shaped pretzels
(you decide the amounts, you just need the same amount of each)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Place pretzels on a cookie sheet, in a single layer.
Top with one hershey kiss each.
Put in the oven for 2 minutes.  (the kiss will maintain its shape, so don't wait for it to melt completely!)
Immediately use an M&M to smash the top of the kiss down.
Let cool. 
TIP:  don't try to do too many at a time or by the time you're to the end of your pan, the kisses are too cool to be smashed!

I did one batch with regular kisses:

One batch with hugs:

And one batch with the seasonal Candy Cane kisses:

My review:  I never knew how to make these, but I really liked to eat them!  What a cute little snack and filler for Christmas gift bags.  I imagine these would be fun to make with kids, because they would like the smashing with the M&M's and even the unwrapping of all the kisses!  Try them!
