Acorn Treats {Week 7 of The 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats!}

Week 7 baby.

I am LOVING this 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats challenge. As always, I'd like to thank Brenda for hosting this incredible series!

This week I was short on time so needed something quick and easy.

Like, no-cooking-quick-and-easy.

I found a recipe that seemed like the perfect solution. No cooking? Check. Adorable? Check. Tasty? Check.

It's these Acorn Treats.



















See, I told you they were adorable.


















Acorn Treats
ever-so-slightly adapted from Taste of Home  

  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 48 Hershey kisses
  • 48 Nutter Butter Bites
  • 48 mini semisweet chocolate chips
In a microwave, melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Spread the flat side of each kiss with a small amount of melted chocolate; immediately attach each to a cookie. Place a tiny dollop of melted chocolate on the top of the acorn and immediately attach a mini chocolate chip to make a stem. Refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container.
