Ingredients
  • 50 pretzel rings...you can also use mini-round pretzels, checkerboard or windowpane shaped pretzels.
  • 1 package Hershey's chocolate kisses and/or Hershey's chocolate hugs (8 ounces).
  • ¼ cup red and green M&M's.
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the pretzels in rows on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Place a chocolate kiss in the center of each pretzel.
  4. Bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for 2-3 minutes or until the chocolate softens.
  5. Remove from oven.
  6. Carefully place one M&M in the center of the kiss, pressing down slightly, so the chocolate fills the pretzel.
  7. Refrigerate or freeze for 10-20 minutes until firm.
Notes
Makes 4 dozen. Reindeer Belly Buttons freeze well. You can use a variety of Hershey's kisses (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, hugs) but use only one type per sheet as they melt at different rates. Hugs and caramel Hershey's kisses take longer to soften. Use green and red M&M's at Christmas, red and pink M&M's for Valentine's Day, pastel M&M's for Easter.
