Cute Acorns Made with Hershey’s Kisses
I’m so excited to share this super cute recipe with you! It’s perfect for the season and super fun too. Check out these cute acorns made with Hershey’s Kisses, Nutter Butter mini’s and chocolate chips. Adorable right?!
You might want to save this one for a kids project idea. The kids can make these all on their own once the icing is made. I was shopping at the store and ended up in the candy section. I try really hard to avoid this section but we were planning on making smore’s so I needed chocolate bars. I stumbled upon a large bag of Nutter Butter Bites. These cookies are a mini version of the regular Nutter Butter cookies but in a round shape. When I saw the round shape and the design I immediate thought it looked like the top of an acorn. I was in the chocolate section purchasing our chocolate bars when I saw the Hershey’s kisses and right then and there I knew I wanted to attempt to make some Chocolate Acorns made with Hershey’s Kisses! I just had to figure out how I was going to glue them together and then figure out what to use as a stem on top of the acorn. I headed to the baking section of my grocery store to purchase items for a royal icing. I just finished making about ABC and Ruler Sugar Cookies and I used a royal icing with that recipe so I knew that would be perfect for the glue because it hardens with it dries. Perfect!
Here’s how we made these Cute Acorns made with Hershey’s Kisses Recipe:
- Hershey’s Kisses (the Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate)
- Nutter Butter Bites
- Royal Icing (get a Royal Icing recipe here)
- Chocolate chips or Butterscotch Chips (we used both)
Start by scraping all of the filling off the inside of the Nutter Butter Bites cookies. This kids like this part because they eat the filling as they go.
Now unwrap all the Hershey’s Kisses you need.
Make the Royal Icing based on this recipe here. This will be the glue that will hold everything together.
Now assemble each piece as seen in the photos and use a very small amount of the icing as the glue. The icing will harden after a little bit. It will hold it together nicely.
