Acorn Candy Cookies

    These cute little acorn candy cookies are perfect for fall and for Thanksgiving and they are sooooo easy to make.  They would also be super cute on top of cupcakes.  I found this recipe on while I was looking for some new ideas for Thanksgiving. I made some with butterscotch chips and also made some peanut butter chips...both were really good!


  • 1 tablespoon prepared chocolate frosting
  • 24 milk chocolate candy kisses (such as Hershey's Kisses®), unwrapped
  • 24 mini vanilla wafer cookies (such as Nilla®)
  • 24 butterscotch chips


1.  Smear a small amount of frosting onto the flat bottom of a candy kiss. Press onto the flat bottom of the vanilla wafer. Smear a little more frosting onto the flat bottom of a butterscotch chip, and press onto the rounded top of the cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Set aside to dry, about 30 minutes.
