Baby Acorns - A Holiday Treat

It's Holiday time!
Time to get your snack on...!

Do you make holiday treats?  What's your favorite?  Do you bake, make candy, quick breads, cookies, or maybe fudge?  There is such an array of holiday treats how does a girl decide which one?

I like to make goodies and spread the wealth to my friends at work, and to fatten up MGG's employees as well!  I usually end up making several varieties of goodies to share.  Growing up, I remember our neighbor always bringing us a plate full of cookies, fudge, and other treats to munch on during the holidays.  I looked forward to it every year.  My favorite?  She made these spritz cookies, and tinted the little trees green, and sprinkled them with little colorful beads.  Reminded me of a pretty Christmas tree. Oh the buttery softness, they melt in your mouth.   I loved them!

When you are making a variety of goodies it's nice to have some simple, but cute, items to make.  Something not too involved to fill in the basket.

These are just that, cute, simple, and delishhh!  My Baby Acorns, have such a cute look.  No baking involved. The most time consuming part is unwrapping the candy kisses!  So it's really just a matter of assembly, and that's done with mini vanilla wafers, and some chocolate frosting (pre-made!)  How easy is that?

I hope you try these cute little nibbles, they are perfect to give to the your co-workers, neighbors, teachers, classmates, whomever loves a bite of chocolate!

Baby Acorns

approx 60 acorns

1 box of mini vanilla wafers
1 bag of Hershey's kisses
1 tub of chocolate icing

Unwrap your chocolate kisses.  Set out your mini vanilla wafers.  Place a couple of heaping spoons of the icing in a plastic sandwich bag and press out the air and close.  Push the icing down to one corner and twist the top to use this as a piping bag.  Cut of a small piece of the corner for the opening.

Pipe a dollop of icing on each mini wafer, the flat side.  Place the flat side of the chocolate kiss against the flat side of the wafer.  The icing becomes your glue.  Place on a try until the icing sets.  If you would like you can make a little tip with the icing on the outside (rounded side) of the wafer.
