Acorn Kisses

These adorable acorn kisses are easy to make and a fun activity to make with kids. These chocolate treats only use four to five ingredients and are not only easy to make but they’re yummy, too. They’re a perfect fall activity!

This recipe was inspired by Hershey’s version of Kisses Acorn Treats that use Hershey Milk Chocolate Kisses, mini vanilla wafers, Peanut butter mini chips, and homemade icing to glue the pieces together.

Acorn kisses made with mini nilla wafers and mini fudge stripe cookies.

How to Make Acorn Kisses

Unwrap the candies and cookies – Unwrap the chocolate kisses as well as open the bags of Mini Nilla wafers and the Mini Fudge Stripe cookies.

Prepare the cookie icing – Cut the tip of the icing tube large enough to squeeze a small amount to glue the acorn kisses together.

Assemble the acorn kisses – Squeeze a small amount of icing onto the flat part of the chocolate kisses and then place the bottom of either a Mini Nilla wafer or mini Fudge Stripe onto the icing and give it a quarter turn. This will help the icing stick!

TIP: Placing parchment paper down on the table or counter while making these chocolate treats will make it quick and easy to clean up!

Place a small amount of icing onto the bottom of the mini chocolate chip and give it a quarter-turn twist when attaching it to the top of the wafer or cookie.

Allow drying – Allow the cookie icing to harden before moving the acorn treats carefully to a container to retain freshness.
