I think I might be hungry....

And if I wasn't when I started this post, I certainly will be soon!

I just discovered edible buttons!  I was talking to my DH about making molds of various items a while back, and I mentioned that sometimes people use buttons for that purpose (always happy to bring buttons into any conversation, and DH has learned to ignore it).  He brought up "food safe molds" and the idea popped into my head -could buttons be used as molds for candy?

That led to a quick search...and look what I found: 

We have chocolate buttons!  Once upon a time, many years ago, my sister and I had a seal point siamese cat named "chocolate buttons" so one day I may just have to order a box of these. 

How about vintage buttons -made of sugar?  What a wedding favor those could be!

If you're craving something more colorful, maybe fondant buttons are more your taste? I think these might be a hit for a sewing retreat or quilting bee.

Now I just need to find the perfect blend of coffee to enjoy with them. :D
