EASY(!) Chocolate Peanut Butter Acorns

Chocolate Peanut Butter Acorns

For the last several years, I've made batches of these. Why I've never posted them on the blog is a mystery. There's a high probability that it's because we eat them all before I have a chance to take photos.

These little chocolate peanut butter acorns are SO EASY. Yes, they're so easy that it warranted capitalization.

Here's what you need: 

  • Hershey's Kisses
  • Mini Nutter Butter Cookies
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Chocolate Melting Wafers*
*the melting wafers aren't 100% necessary. I normally just melt chocolate chips for that part, but was shipping these and wanted them a bit sturdier. Either works just fine. 


Unwrap the Kisses. Try to refrain from eating them. I usually buy the family-size bag.


Separate the cookies. Some of the cookies will have no filling, some will have all of the filling, some will have a bit. It's all good. Leave as is. 

[NOTE: I've found bags of Nutter Butter Minis at Target, but my grocery store only sells them in the lunchbox-size cookie variety pack. My sister got bags of them at a convenience store. They're worth the hunt.]

Melt the chocolate melting wafers or extra chocolate chips (you don't need a lot) in the microwave in 30-second intervals at 30% power. Stir after each interval, heating until melted.

Dip the flat side of each Kiss into the melted chocolate. Press on a Nutter Butter cookie, flat side down.

Dip the bottom of a mini chocolate chip into the melted chocolate and press onto the top.

Place the acorns onto a waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Once all of the acorns are assembled, place in the refrigerator to set up. (You can skip the fridge if you used the melting wafers.)

Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator...they're fine either way.

Using the family-size bag of Hershey's, you'll get about 80 acorns (minus the ones you test while making).
