Frozen Yogurt Honey Buttons

The inspiration for these gorgeous frozen buttons came from One Good Thing by Jillee and Shutterbean.  I knew I had to try them immediately and, just as quickly, put my own spin on them and share them with you.  I brainstormed for a bit and decided that piping the yogurt into little cup shapes and filling them with honey would be a tasty idea!  These buttons are super cold but they start melting into creaminess within seconds with the honey adding a burst of extra gooey sweetness.  They’re so simple to churn out and perfect for these ninety something degree days!   Little kiddies will probably go nuts over them too…

Makes about 40 buttons

1 six ounce container Vanilla Greek Yogurt (like Chobani or Fage)
1 plastic sandwich bag

Have a glass baking dish ready (a metal pan might transfer unwanted crud or color onto your buttons).  Spoon yogurt into the corner of the sandwich bag and cut the tip off to create a quarter inch opening.  Pipe the yogurt onto the baking dish starting with a dot and then swirling around the dot in a circular motion two or three times, making an inch wide basket or cup shape.  Continue making the buttons until all yogurt is used up.  Gently squeeze a drop of honey into the middle of each button.  Freeze buttons for an hour or more before enjoying.  Transfer extra frozen buttons to a sealed freezer bag and store in freezer, grabbing some whenever you need a cold treat!
