How To Make Acorn Candy Cookies
As the cold weather is upon us, it’s hard to remember sometimes that the first day of winter isn’t until December 21st! So in honor I fall, I give you a cute treat that’s easy to put together, impressively life-like and delicious to boot! You are going to love these acorn candy treats.
Candy Acorn Ingredients:
- Mini Nutter Butter Cookies, Bites
- Mini chocolate chips (1 cup is plenty)
- Hershey kisses
Candy Acorns Fall Edible Craft Tutorial
Melt about a ½ cup of chocolate chips in the microwave in a very small bowl.
Dip the bottom of a Hersey kiss in the melted chocolate and press it against the side of one of the mini Nutter Butters.
Then do the same with one mini chocolate chip on the other side of the Nutter Butter.
The end result? An adorable candy acorn that looks JUST like the real thing and tastes like chocolate peanut butter goodness!
If for any reason you don’t like peanut butter, you can always use mini Nilla Wafers instead of the Mini Nutter Butters.
These candy acorns make for excellent pie toppers, or plate decorations with any dessert or even a side dish. So what do you say everyone? Let’s give fall the send off it deserves!
