Nutty Acorns

WOW! I really got myself backed up. I need to get busy again. I have so much wonderful stuff to share with all of you.

As you know I am always looking for new and creative ideas for things to make not just my church coffee cart, but in general. I get my ideas from all over the place, including a lot of you. This idea came to me from one of you. I believe it was from foodzesty, at but I am not positive. My apologies. I had saved the post to make sure I could properly acknowledge my inspiration, but alas, in my haste to clean things up, I must have deleted it accidentally. The original version was absolutely adorable, especially with the smaller Nutter Butter Peanut Butter cookies. I couldn’t find the smaller cookies, so my acorns must be from a different “tree, but I think they still came out cute. They were a big hit too.

These are super easy to make and would be fun to make with your kids or your grandkids too. All they take are just a few simple ingredients and a little time and patience.

I dabbed each cookie with a little bit of chocolate frosting first, then added a kiss to make the top of my acorn.

For the bottom tail, I melted some peanut butter chips with a dash of milk, and again, dabbled a little bit on the bottom, and finished it with one peanut butter chip. I think his acorn had a little “sap” dripping from it. 🙂

Place the finished acorns on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour to let them set before serving.

These are a fun and tasty way to enjoy the fall season. You can use any type of small sandwich cookie for these too. Use your imagination and be creative.

Take in all the beauty of the day. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
