I have seen different versions of these Acorn Kisses from several other sources. Most of them are made with either Nutter Butter Bites or Vanilla Wafer Bites. I couldn't make mine with either of those ingredients because one of my grandchildren has an allergy to peanuts and tree nuts. Reading labels closely is a requirement when a family member has a serious allergy. Not even all brands of chocolate chips or canned frostings are safe for a person with a peanut allergy. I looked for alternative ingredients for my little Acorn Kisses so they would be safe for the whole family.
1 (12 pack) Mini Fudge Stripe Cookies
1 package (19.75 ounce) Hershey's Kisses
1 tub (16 ounce) chocolate frosting
1 package (12 ounce) chocolate chips
Frosting bag with #4 tip
Unwrap the Hershey's Kisses. Pipe a small amount of frosting onto the flat top of a Hershey's Kiss, then place a cookie, flat side down, on top of the frosting. Pipe a small blob of frosting in the center of the cookie top, then place a chocolate chip on top of the frosting. Let the frosting dry, or to speed it up chill the acorns in the refrigerator.
I set up an assembly line of ingredients - bowls of chocolate chips, unwrapped Kisses, cookies, and a bag of chocolate frosting. I had about a bazillion of these goodies made in no time.
Since I made so many, I decided to use some of them as a classroom treat at my grandson's school. I bagged up a basketful for the second grade class to enjoy during their milk break tomorrow.
Whether or not you are a person who likes to cook, this might be a treat you'll want to make for your Thanksgiving dessert table. Acorn Kisses are super easy and very yummy. Some assembly required.
