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!
