This is the Fall of acorns. It’s almost dangerous walking outdoors! The squirrels and chipmunks and deer are enjoying the bounty. There are a few real acorns in this picture but mostly they are edible chocolate and nutter butter treats. A little something that is easy and adorable to put out for guests this Fall. All you need is a bag of Hersey Kisses (pick your favorite flavor), a bag of Nutter Butters, chocolate chips and a few extra chips to melt for “glue.”
Dab a little melted chocolate onto one side of the nutter butter and glue on a kiss.
I set them on a wax paper lined tray (actually a pizza pan) and let the chocolate set. Once the chocolate has hardened, using more chocolate glue, attach a chocolate chip to the other side. Voila! Edible acorns.
NOTE: Depending on how many acorns you want to make you may need two bags of nutter butters for one bag of kisses. If you’re a perfectionist you’ll find Nutter Butter needs a little more quality control. Lots of lopsided or upside-down cookies.
