Chocolate “Acorn” Treats

How cute are these little nuggets?! My friend Brittany joined me for a fun Sunday afternoon in making these adorable mini bites, which are *super* easy to make. I made them a couple years ago for Thanksgiving and they were a big hit with the family 😉

Ingredients:

1 bag of Hershey Kisses
1 bag of mini Nutterbutters
*optional – mini chocolate chips for “stem” of acorn (seen in instagram link above)

Instructions: 

Empty out the bag of mini Nutterbutters and scrape filling out of sandwiched cookies. Throw away filling and keep cookies as filling-free as possible. Arrange on plate or table upside down, ready for the Hershey Kisses.

Unwrap the number of Hershey Kisses as Nutterbutter “tops” and have read next to stove with upside down Nutterbutter cookies ready to assemble.

Heat a medium sized sauce pan to low-medium and touch flat bottom of Hershey Kiss to hot pan. Using the melted chocolate, adhere Kiss to cookie. Continue matching Kiss to cookie until all are paired. *Scrape bottom of pan when necessary to keep chocolate residue from burning.

And enjoy 🙂

As you may have noticed, this time around I did not add the mini chip stem, which is super cute. Looking back now, I sort of wish we had added them, but at the time I didn’t feel like accidentally burning my fingers, ha. Your move, friends!
