Try These Tasty Acorn Treats at your Fall Festivities

acorn candiesLooking for a cute treat idea for fall? Offer a nutty party candy by making acorns from Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses, mini Nilla Wafers and peanut butter chips. Children will love to help with this project, especially if you have an “it is okay to eat the ugly ones” policy.

To make these super cute candies, all you need is one box of mini Nilla Wafers, one bag of peanut butter chips, Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses, and a tiny bit of milk. These snacks are extremely easy and fast to make! First put about two tablespoons of peanut butter chips into a bowl and melt them in the microwave. Stir the peanut butter chips to melt them. To get the right glue consistency, add a teaspoon of milk and stir it in. Add more milk if necessary until you have a white glue consistency.

When your peanut butter glue is ready , grab a Nilla Wafer, unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss, and a peanut butter chip. Dip the bottom of the kiss into the peanut butter glue. A small amount of the glue should stick to the bottom of the kiss. Then put the kiss and the flat side of the Nilla Wafer and push them together. Then do the same with the peanut butter chip, but push it to the rounded side of the Nilla Wafer (as shown in the picture). Voila! You now have an acorn! Once you have a fair amount made, loosely cover and refrigerate to protect them from melting.

The acorns are delicious! These snacks are perfect for candies at parties. Because of the small size, they make excellent snacks at school Halloween parties or a tiny treat for your kids’ lunches!

Display your acorns on a fall-colored plate or tray, or layer them over paper leaves (the kind you use to serve cheese on a tray.) Not only do they make a great impression on your table, but offer just the right amount of chocolate to satisfy a craving.
