"I made these to take to a ladies lunch, and they were such a hit, both in appearance and flavor. They were popular, too, in the size. That makes them dangerous, if you ask me, but I know I'll be making these often for fall functions. I used dark chocolate kisses and dark chocolate chips for the stems because dark is better for you, and I didn't want to mess with piping."

"Haven't made them, but they look adorable and I'll probably make them for Thanksgiving. One question, how many Kisses are in a bag. It calls for 48, is that approximately 1 bag? Thanks!"

"Super simple and so cute. My granddaughter enjoyed making these with me. The second time I made them I used mini vanilla wafers in lieu of the peanut butter cookies."

"These are cute and easy. I made them several years ago. I use a miniature chocolate chip for the stem. I am going to put them on a peanut butter cake for Thanksgiving this year."

"I can't wait to try these for the first time. One question: Where in the photo is the stem, per instructions to "pipe a stem onto each acorn using a pastry bag"?"

"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!

To KarenSaurer: The stem is piped onto the top of the cookie.
KatieJo: Using half a cookie makes the top of the "acorn" too thin, unlike a real acorn whose top is half of the whole acorn and, as noted, you lose much of the peanut butter flavor. Glad you like them, though :)"

"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."
