To celebrate the falling leaves, the changing colors, and Thanksgiving right around the corner, I made Chocolate and Peanut Butter Acorns. They're the perfect Thanksgiving treat for any party or even just to snack on while you get that turkey in the oven. Just be careful. These things are addicting. Did I mention how tasty they are? Chocolate and Peanut Butter have always been a match made in heaven and you can never lose when Hershey Kisses and Nutter Butters are involved. These cute little acorns take just three ingredients to create and you don't even have to use your oven.
Just melt some mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in the microwave. Then put a little melted chocolate on a Nutter Butter and press a Hershey Kiss on top. On the other side of the Nutter Butter, you'll put a tiny bit more melted chocolate and place one non melted mini chocolate chip. Presto, you have an acorn.
Make as many as you want until you run out of Kisses and Nutter Butters but beware it can get a little tedious assembling the acorns. My son "helped" but that only lasted so long because he was eating so many Kisses and Nutter Butters. He did learn how to unwrap the Hershey Kisses, so I guess that's something? Remember when working in the kitchen with toddlers that you need a lot of time and patience. Also, messes can't bother you so much. So I sent him out of the kitchen and finished on my own. So its up to you how many acorns you want to make. You can just make a handful or you can make a bunch for your Thanksgiving gathering.
