Chocolate Acorns

I’m nuts about acorns and anything acorn related!

I am attracted to acorns themselves, acorn plates, acorn photos, acorn charms … you get the idea.

Do you like these roly-poly little guys …

I made them just for you!

These acorns are candy (like a Nestle Crunch Bar) on the bottom and a cookie (similar to a Girl Scout Samoa) on the top.  The cookies have been hidden away in the cupboard for sometime … the hubby’s eyes lite up when he saw them … I knew they weren’t safe around him.  I always gotta keep an eye on him and my cookies 😉

This is what you will need to make 18 acorns …

1.  Melt the chocolate according to the package directions.  Pour about 1/3 of a cup into a squeeze bottle (or bag), reserve remaining chocolate.  Lay cookies a wax paper covered tray and drizzle chocolate over the tops of the cookies, creating a cross-hatch pattern.  Set aside to let chocolate firm up.  Save the chocolate in the bottle for attaching cookies.

2.  The pretzels should be about 2″ tall … break pretzels if necessary.

3.  Add rice cereal to chocolate and stir to combine.  Spoon chocolate mixture into mold … about 1″ deep.

4.  Insert pretzel into the middle of the chocolate and tap the mold on the counter to even it out and remove any air bubbles … straighten pretzel if necessary.  Chill until set (5-10 minutes in freezer).

5.  Remove chocolates from mold.  If you use a silicone mold, you will need to push from the bottom.

6.  Squirt a ring of chocolate around the pretzel (close to the outer edge).

7.  Place a prepared cookie on top and you have created a chocolate acorn!  Repeat 17 more times 😉

These would be a perfect addition to each place setting at the Thanksgiving table!

  1. When I first saw the picture of the acorn for 2013, Brenda, I thought it was going to be complicated. You simplify it with your instructions, so probably even I could make them. Nice job!

  2. I KNEW I should have bought that Wilton mold when I saw it in the thrift store! How could I not have known you would come up with an awesome acorn idea:)
