If you're looking for something easy to make this fall or even for Thanksgiving, these tasty acorns are made with three simple ingredients. 

  • A bag of Hershey Kisses (I used milk chocolate)
  • Nutter Butter Bites (I took them apart but you can use the whole cookie)
  • Pretzel sticks (break into pieces for the stems)

  • I set up an assembly line on my counter that consisted of the following:

    1)  Unwrapped chocolate kisses
    2)  Nutter Butter bites
    3)  A small bowl of melted chocolate (I melted 3 kisses)
    4)  A small bowl of pretzel pieces


    Melt a few of the chocolate Kisses in a small bowl in the microwave (about one minute). That's your glue. Dip the flat side of the kiss into the melted chocolate (sparingly) and attach it to the Nutter Butter cookie. Once you have completed all of them, it is time to attach the stem. Dip your pretzel piece into the chocolate (glue), and place the pretzel piece on the top center of the Nutter Butter.  Let them sit on the counter while the chocolate hardens.  

    That's it! Enjoy.

    I'm joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.
