Last year for a little Thanksgiving-themed mother-daughter project, Sweetie Pea and I made these cute "acorn" cookies. We whipped up a big batch of them and used them as a pre-dinner treat at our feast. We put one or two out at each place setting for guests to enjoy as they waited for their turn in the dinner line.
You will need:
- 1 bag of Hershey's Kisses
- 1 box of MINI Nilla Wafers
- approx. a dozen pretzel sticks broken into 1/4 inch pieces
- 1/4 c. chocolate frosting
With a pastry piping bag (or a Ziplock bag with a small scissor snip in one corner), pipe a small dollop of frosting onto the bottom side of a Hershey's Kiss. Top with a mini Nilla Wafer. Then, pipe a small dot in the center of the Wafer. Top with a 1/4 inch piece of pretzel to form the stem. Chill completed "acorns" for a few minutes until the frosting hardens a bit. Serve with a smile.
