MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 18, 2014

"I just made these this afternoon. It was so quick and easy and they turned out super cute! To make them look a little more like an actual acorn, I split the cookies and topped each kiss with half a cookie. I think it would taste better to use the whole cookie since you'd get more peanut butter flavor, but if you're just going for looks, half a cookie looks way better. I was going to use mini chocolate chips for the stem but didn't have any, so I just followed the instructions and piped them. A couple didn't look great, but I didn't have as much trouble as I thought I would with it. Will definitely make these again!"

"I sent this idea in, with photos, about a year before it was published. I came up with the idea years ago when my children were in grammar school. I used to make these little acorns, along with cupcake turkeys, throughout their grammar school days and still make them for our Thanksgiving celebrations. Everyone always loves them!"

"You could use Ritz Bits Peanut butter for a salty/sweet combo. Have not made these but thought they were Ritz until I read the recipe. I love they way they look and so easy too. Can't decide how I will make these for our gathering. So I gave it 1 star so I could write a comment. I would probably give it 5 stars after I make them up."

"These were fun & easy to make. I used premade chocolate frosting to hold the pieces together and chocolate chips for the stem instead of the melted chocolate and it worked out great. My 5 year old could make them by herself. We also made half with mini vanilla oreos for the people that dont like peanut butter."

MY REVIEW

"These are so easy to make!! They look great as decoration on the dinner table. Easy to snack on. Instead of piping the acorn stems I used mini chocolate chips and attached them with the melted chocolate that I used to attach the chocolate kiss to the cookie."
