I found these pretzel buttons and knew it was meant to be. What was NOT meant to be was easily finding those shaped pretzels AND the Hugs. Took a damn man hunt! In the end, though, it worked out. Other than taking the time to unwrap a million Hugs and sort out the colors of M&Ms, they were totally easy to make. I love that you can easily customize the colors. I went with green and yellow for their favorite baseball team, the A's. I made a couple with Rolos, from another baking project. They tasted good, but the caramel didn't melt down at all, so they didn't look as cute and squishy.
What you'll need:
- square pretzels
- Hershey's Hugs . You can use Kisses, too, but I think the Hugs taste better and they definitely soften up better!
- plain M&Ms
