Sweet Acorns

Fall is my favorite time of year.  I enjoy cooler weather and the leaves changing color.  Today should be a lovely 88° and Thursday is expected to reach 100°!  This is October … isn’t it?  I am going to ignore the weather and pretend it’s cool.  I am in fall mode and the temperature is not going to spoil it!

Today I made acorns since I don’t have an oak tree.  These are sweet little acorns … not the kind that fall off trees.  But I suppose that’s obvious.

This is what you will need …

  • Nutter Butter Bites
  • Hershey Kisses (I used dark because I had leftovers from the witch hats)
  • Peanut butter chips (some melted, some not)

Set up an assembly line … unwrap the Kisses.  Melt about 1/4 cup of the peanut butter chips in the microwave (20 seconds, stir, 20 seconds, stir).  This will be your “glue”.  Put a little “glue” on the cookies and place the Kisses on the cookie …

After the “glue”has hardened … “glue” the remaining peanut butter chips on top of the cookies …

Congratulations … you just “grew” acorns!

  2. You just brought me down memory lane. I remember the hugh oak tree that my mother and aunt had in their yard. I remember going into the yard and picking up the acorns up from off the ground. You know the saying The Good Old Days. Every time I see something in the shape of a acorn I try and buy it. Now in the yard is a smaller oak tree. I call the smaller oak tree the daughter of the bigger oak tree. Thanks so much for putting a smile on my face and having me think about when I was a little girl. Barbara

  3. Oh! how cute….I love acorns, and have been looking lately at all the creative things you can do with them. I like fall the best, I think…..starting to see pumpkins. The color orange is such a comforting color. And it is a great time of year to bake and burn yummy smelling candles….. Happy Fall Brenda!!!

  6. Fall by far is the best time of the year! Leaves changing, holidays are coming soon, football, county fairs in my area, humidity and temperatures fall in Southeast Georgia and I get to bake lots and lots! The acorns are adorable. I can’t wait to make and try them. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Favorite season: Fall, late fall, to be exact. I am a winter person and the anticipation with the visual changes of color and ability to go out and be refreshed ( instead of sweating and tired) is what I look forwarf to every year.

    Love the acorns and my shopping list just expanded,

  8. Living in Texas, I would have to say spring because sometimes we have a little bit of winter “cool” left over before the hot season starts!

  15. How adorable and clever these acorns are! You can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter… I would have to go with Fall being my favorite season because of the cool, crisp mornings and windy, sunny afternoons. Autumn colors are so spectacular. Thank you for sharing your recipe for these and thanks for the opportunity to win those darling doily shapes!

  17. I made your acorns this past weekend for a clambake. What a hit they were! Everyone raved over them and I beamed – knowing I hadn’t baked a thing and had the “best dessert ever!” Thanks for this great idea~!!
