Acorn Treats

Here's a fun, festive Thanksgiving decoration that's easy to make.  The kids helped us make these last night- all you need is Nutter Butter mini's, regular-sized Hershey's kisses, mini chocolate chips, and a "glue".  We used Nutella, but one can use peanut butter or frosting, as well.  You only need a tiny bit. 

I first saw these in one of my Hello, Cupcake books, using Mini Nilla Wafers.  We tried those too, but liked the look of the Mini Nutter Butters better.  Also, we split each sandwich cookie in half, so it wasn't such a thick layer.  I like them a lot better this way.  The pic below shows both the Nilla Wafer and Nutter Butter way.

Hershey's Kisses
Nutter Butter Bites or Mini Nilla Wafers
Mini Chocolate Chips
Nutella, PB, or frosting

1.  Unwrap Hershey's kisses.  If using Nilla Wafers, split each in half where the filling is.  If necessary, use some Nutella, PB or frosting as "glue" to hold the kiss in place.  Place the flat side of the kiss onto the flat side of the cookie.  On the opposite side, "glue" a mini chocolate chip onto the cookie using nutella, PB or frosting.  To make this easier, place a small dollop of nutella, pb or frosting onto a small plate.  Lightly "dip" each chocolate chip into it, then stick that on the "acorn".
