Happy Valentine's Day loves! This time of year always rolls by so quickly and it's been one of my favorites not because I like getting sweets or gifts... but because I love making 2 of my own treats! I've been gifting these Hershey buttons since I was in college to my girlfriends and I absolutely adore how cute they look. Plus, they're really addicting to eat since the saltiness of the pretzel pairs so well with the sweetness of the hershey kiss and crunchiness of the M&M hehe. The second treat are Ruffle Chips dipped in white chocolate and crushed M&M's sprinkled on top. I got the inspiration from these Royce chips dipped in chocolate and they're seriously so yummy. Let's get started!

1.) HERSHEY BUTTONS

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • Valentine colored M&M's
  • White chocolate, milk chocolate striped Hershey Kisses
  • Pretzel squares

HOW TO: 

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees. Place some parchment paper on a baking pan. Place all the pretzel squares and directly on top, place all the hershey kisses. This part is the most time consuming because you have to unwrap each kiss, but it's definitely worth it! 

After, place this pan in the oven for 3 full minutes. Depending on the quality of your oven, once you see some of the kisses melting, it's ready to be taken out! 

You're going to have to work super quickly at this point. Place one M&M on top of each hershey kiss. Don't press too hard but you're going to want to put it right in the center. Place in the buttons in the refrigerator so they can harden.

Voila! Look how adorable and sweet they look. I usually gift these in a mason jars so you can see all the pretty hue's of Valentine day colors. 

2.) CHOCOLATE COVERED WAVY CHIPS

WHAT YOU'LL NEED: 

  • White chocolate
  • Valentine Day colored M&M's
  • Ruffle chips

HOW TO: 

Melt the white chocolate in the microwave. You can melt it in increments of 30 seconds so stir occasionally while you're melting it! Once you melt it, dip the chips into the white chocolate. You might need a fork to help you coat half of the chip evenly. Crush some M&M's in a plastic bag.

Place some parchment paper on to a baking pan. Place the chocolate dipped ruffles on the parchment paper and sprinkle some of the crushed M&M's on top. 

Wait for the chocolate to harden and voila... it's ready to be gifted and eaten! Wasn't that super easy? These treats are seriously so pretty and super gift-able. Anybody on the receiving end will absolutely love and be touched. Hope you all have the sweetest Valentine's and enjoy!
