Want an easy, but utterly adorable and fast addition to your holiday spread? How about these precious candy acorns? No baking necessary, and they assemble in a snap. Just the kind of thing that can actually be managed during this busy holiday season.
Ingredients for Candy Acorns:
- Hershey Kisses
- Mini Nutter Butter Cookies
- Chocolate Chips
- Icing (optional–can use melted chocolate chips instead)
To assemble, first unwrap the Hershey kisses. I used some leftover salted caramel buttercream to stick everything together, but I wouldn’t make a batch of icing just for this job. If I didn’t already have the icing, I’d just melt a few chocolate chips and use that as my glue.
Adhere a mini Nutter Butter cookie on the flat end of the Hershey kiss, and stick a chocolate chip on top of the cookie. It’s as simple as that.
If you’re using melted chocolate to put the parts together, put the acorns in the fridge for a few minutes to cool down the chocolate and make sure everything sticks together nicely.
The perfect, bite-sized sweet to add to your holiday table.
Happy November friends!!!!
