C & C in the Kitchen: Belly Buttons

At Thanksgiving I was introduced to Belly Buttons. No, not the odd body part (I'm not a fan), these little amuse bouches of deliciousness. And, to top it off, they're crazy easy to make and the perfect treat to wrap up and give to teachers, colleagues, babysitters, friends, hostesses, neighbors…you name it. 

Belly Buttons:

Square or round pretzels (Synder's of Hanover calls them Snaps)
Bag of Hersey's Kisses of your choice (I used half peppermint and half regular)
Bag of regular M & Ms (I used dark chocolate)

Preheat oven to 250.
Line up all the pretzels on a cookie sheet. 
Place one kiss in the middle of each pretzel (the unwrapping is the prefect job for a child or your +1 - Dr. by was my assistant). 
Place in the oven for 4 minutes (or until the kisses are at the very beginning of losing their shape and melting)
Take out of the oven, place one M & M on top and push down to spread out across the pretzel.
Place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to cool. 




  1. So cute! I'm going to have to try the peppermint kisses! I made something similar last year with a pretzel, rolo, and a pecan on top - they were a hit!

  2. Great minds think alike!! We made these for the kids teachers!! Great to see you at Thanksgiving!!
