Hi Everyone, Even here in Florida I can feel Autumn in the air! It is a tiny bit cooler and the slant of the sun is different, crows are flying about and calling, and the oak tree is dropping acorns on the ground. Squirrels are having fun gathering and eating them! I made some cute little treats that look like acorns! They are adorable and taste really yummy!
Gather some unwrapped chocolate kisses, some Nutter Butter bites and some little chocolate chips. I had these all laid out to use. Then I popped a microwave safe plate into the microwave and heated it for a minute. Now put some of the kisses, bottoms down, on the hot plate, a few at a time and when the bottom of the kiss begins to soften and melt, press a kiss onto a Nutter Butter cookie bite. Do the same with a chocolate chip at the top. Now you have an "acorn". How cute is that!
Today my church Senior group meets, so I am taking a couple of leaf shaped plates filled with these treats to share. I think these would be fun for the grandchildren to make, too, so that will be a project we can do together before Thanksgiving.
