Nutter Butter and Hershey Kiss Acorns

Happy Fall!

This is really more of a dessert idea than baking.  It took be less than 10 minutes to make a couple dozen of these babies.  I don't know about you, but Fall is by far my favorite season.  I look forward to it all year and am a little sad when it ends so quickly.  To welcome Fall I decided I would make these little cuties.  I have seen them all over the internet for years and did not even bother to read how they were made.  I just rant to the store and picked up some Nutter Butter Bites and some Hershey Kisses.  

Nutter Butter and Hershey Kiss Acorns
adapted from Taste of Home

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
48 Hershey Kisses
48 Nutter Butter Bites

In a microwave, melt 1/4 cup chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Spread the flat side of each kiss with a small amount of melted chocolate; immediately attach each to a cookie.

Cut a small hole in the corner of a  plastic bag. Fill with remaining melted chocolate. Pipe a dot onto each acorn and top with chocolate chip. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; refrigerate until set. Store in an airtight container.
