Family Fun magazine has inspired several neat projects over the years. These little acorn snacks or no exception. The magazine instructions stated to use mini- vanilla wafers. My store didn't sell them, so luckily I came across mini-Nutter Butter cookies to use instead. I think the substitution works better than the suggested. The peanut flavored cookie and chocolate go well together.
To make the acorns you need:
chocolate Candy Kisses
mini vanilla wafers or a likely substitute
The assembly is self explanatory, Right?
Halfway through our candy assembly we were pleasantly interrupted. Mister (aka Daddy) couldn't wait to give one of the birthday girls a gift. She is now the proud owner of a Fender acoustic (big girl...real) guitar. Our assembly process got a little silly and messy after that. If you are striving for perfection, a pastry bag filled with the frosting would make the job perfect. We were goofing off and having fun, executing a perfect product didn't play into that equation.
Happy Autumn Everyone!
