Peanut butter acorn treats

Fall is here, and everywhere I look, I see falling leaves, pinecones, scarecrows, and acorns!

It's that time of year to go crazy with fall-inspired activities. 🍂🍁 Every year we head to the corn maze and pumpkin patch. We decorate pumpkins. 🎃

Then we rake leaves, throw up the Halloween decorations, 👻 watch scary movies, and take family photos. It's a busy season, but one of my favorites for creating memories!

My kids love to do seasonal activities like apple crafts and eat seasonally inspired fun treats like this acorn candy made with a Hershey Kiss.

How to Make Acorn Treats

  1. Open a sandwich-size Ziploc bag. Holding one bottom corner with your hand, drape the top open portion over your hand. Fill the corner you are holding with 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter.
  2. Close the bag almost completely, leaving only a very small portion open for air to escape. Cut the tip of the corner where the peanut butter is to create a piping bag.
  3. Pipe a small amount of peanut butter onto the center of a Nutter Butter Bite. Press one Hershey’s Kiss into the peanut butter.
  4. On the opposite side of the Nutter Butter Bite, pipe a dot of peanut butter, and press one peanut butter chip.
  5. Let the peanut butter dry for approximately 5 minutes before serving.

Chocolate Acorns Variations

I like to use Hershey’s chocolate kisses, mini Nutter Butters, peanut butter, and peanut butter chips. But there are other ways to make them delicious and fun!

  • Make a vanilla version with mini Vanilla Wafer cookies and chocolate chips
  • Replace the peanut butter “glue” with frosting.
  • Use a tiny broken-off pretzel stick as the stem.
