Recently I have become some what obsessed with Pinterest. If you aren’t familiar with Pinterest you are seriously missing out. Wikipedia, the source for everything accurate, states that Pinterest is a vision board-styled social photo sharing website and app where users can create and manage theme-based image collections. You need to be invited by someone who is already on Pinterest in order to join. If you request to join without an invite you will be not only be embarrassed but also put on a waiting list.
In whatever free time I manage to come up with I try to re-create something I have found pinteresting. And by free time I mean the time I come up with due to avoiding homework. I discovered something that I made around Halloween. (I know, I haven’t blogged for awhile.) It is great for fall potlucks at work or even sending with your kids to school as a treat in their lunch box.
All you need to make the adorable Acorn Treats are: Nutter Butter Bites, Hershey Kisses and Chocolate Chips.
In a double boiler melt about a half cup of chocolate chips. Once the chocolate is melted add a small amount to the bottom of a Hershey Kiss. Then stick the Nutter Butter Bite onto the Kiss. The melted chocolate will act as glue.
When the chocolate hardens you will be able to add a chocolate chip on the other side of the Nutter Butter. Add melted chocolate to the bottom of a chocolate chip and stick on as you did with the Hershey Kiss.
And voila, you have adorable, edible acorns perfect for a get together in the fall.
