Nutter Butter Acorn Treats! #HormelFamily

Thursday, October 23, 2014

A few years ago, I saw these ADORABLE snacks floating around on Pinterest.
and while I do love me some Pinterest, it's generally one of those things that has me feeling inferior and rolling my eyes...
Not this time...

Nutter Butter Acorns?
I can do that!

It's now a fall tradition that our family loves!
(though you wouldn't HAVE to wait until fall to make these, you can have nuts all year round!)

A bag of Hershey Kisses, Snack Size Nutter Butter Bites, Skippy Peanut Butter, and chocolate chips!


This is one of those super fun, kids in the kitchen projects!
We love those at our house!

We create an assembly line of sorts, and hope that the unwrapped kisses make it to the work space, 
and not JUST in the mouths of those helping!
(though quality control is ever so important!)


You will 'unscrew' the nutter butters, because you'll use one half on the top of each 'acorn' ~ 

To help it stick, because the peanut butter generally stays on one side of the nutter butter when you pull them apart, you can add a little more Skippy Peanut Butter, or melt some chocolate chips and dip the Hershey Kiss in that melted chocolate, to create a chocolate glue to hold it together!


To add a little variety, we also 'glue' a chocolate chip, or a peanut butter chip, (again, with Skippy or melted chocolate chips!!) on the top of the some of the nutter butters, like so!


What say you, people?
Aren't these just soo adorable!?!


A bowl of acorns at your next fall gathering are sure to be a hit!
People love the chocolate and peanut butter combo, and how CUTE are they?


A snack size delight sure to please your party guests!





Do you have a favorite treat you like to make and or bring to gatherings?

These look so good. As soon as I'm allowed to eat dairy again I want to make them. And eat them all. And not share.
