Valentine Pretzel Buttons

Hello from Applejack Lane.  If you have never been to Pinterest, you are missing out on a wealth of fun ideas.  Recently,  I found a Valentine treat called Valentine Pretzel Buttons from The g*rated Girls.  It was a quick, easy, and tasty treat. 

All I needed was small square pretzels, Hershey Hugs, and M and M's.  

Arrange pretzels on a cookie sheet.  Place a Hershey Hug on each pretzel and  bake in a 200 degree oven for about four minutes.  Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and immediately place a M and M in the center and push down.  Allow to cool until all the candies are set. 
This is so simple and good.  The saltiness of the pretzel balances the sweetness of the candies.  I packaged a dozen in snack-sized zip lock bags to hand out to my gym buddies on Tuesday.  
Happy Valentine's Day!
