Gram's Pretzel Buttons

These cute little "cookie" treats are pretty to look at, they're quick and easy to put together, and they're the perfect salty/sweet combo to add to your Christmas cookie repertoire.  I found this recipe on Pinterest a few weeks ago and knew immediately I would have to give it a try.

The Ingredients.
Square pretzels (Snyder's of Hanover makes square pretzels, but don't use the butter snaps, use the regular flavor)
Hershey's Hugs (you can use Hershey's Kisses, but the Hugs soften up better)
Christmas-colored Plain M&M's 
The Directions.
Preheat oven to 200° (if your oven runs hot you may want to turn the temp down to 170°)
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Place the pretzels on and top them with the Hugs.
Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, until the chocolate is shiny and soft (but NOT melting - they should still hold their shape).
Carefully place an M&M in the center of each hug and press it down to spread the chocolate.  Allow to cool completely (a few minutes in the fridge works perfectly) and enjoy!
