Notes

You are more than welcome to try making these gluten-free by using one to one gluten-free baking all-purpose flour instead.
Vegan butter will work if you don’t want to use regular butter.
Feel free to use any fillings such as walnuts, chocolate chips, white chocolate, or anything else instead if you don’t have M&Ms
