Recipe for fall chocolate acorn treats


KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Need something to keep the family busy? Looking for something sweet and slightly salty to snack on? You’ve come to the right place.

These treats are the “Perfect sweet bite for the fall, and a great kids’ craft. Super cute,” culinarian Lauren Lane wrote. “Fun to make, AND fun to eat. They are also perfect to have over the Thanksgiving holiday, or for a hostess gift.”

  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 48 Nutter Butter Bites
  • 48 Hershey Kisses


  1. In a microwave-safe dish, melt about 1/4 cup mini chips to use as “glue.”
  2. Dip the Nutter Butter bite into the chocolate “glue” and attach it to the Hershey Kiss. Let set on parchment to harden a bit.
  3. Dip mini-chips in melted chocolate and attach “acorn stems” to Nutter Butter bites. Alternatively, you can use sterilized tweezers to dip the mini-chocolate chips if it makes it easier for you.
  4. Let chocolate harden a few minutes and serve.


  • Place on waxed paper or parchment-lined baking sheet to let stand until set.
  • Store in an airtight container.
