My mom and I made these for my baby shower that is on Sunday. The hardest part was finding the mini nutter butters! Aldi randomly had them :) they came out really cute! I would have given 5 stars but putting the chocolate on the top was a struggle. It didn't come out perfectly. It was either too cooled that the chocolate was hard to pipe or too hot that it was runny. Overall, really quick and easy fall treat.

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. I also made a batch using pumpkin spice kisses.

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 used dark chocolate and caramel filled Kisses to make mine. Yum!

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 :)
