These easy acorn cookies are adorable and truly simple to make. They would be fun to add to a Thanksgiving dessert table or a fall birthday party.
You don’t need a special occasion to make easy acorn cookies though. My two-year-old son becomes more interested in nature every day. We recently took a walk, and he happily collected rocks, leaves and acorns along the way. Then we made easy acorn cookies to reinforce his learning and all the fall feels.
It’s a good thing they are easy to make because you’ll want to eat about 10 of them. They just pop right in your mouth with an explosion of peanut butter and chocolate flavor. The classic combination is irresistible!
Easy acorn cookies are sure to be a hit with your family and friends. They would make a super cute hostess gift too.
- Nutter Butter Cookies
- Milk Chocolate Morsels or Chocolate Almond Bark – About 1/2 cup for 8-10 Cookies
- Chocolate Sprinkles
- Pretzel Sticks
How to Make Easy Acorn Cookies
Cut pretzel sticks into six pieces. These will be the stem of the acorn, so cut as many stems for as many cookies as you are making.
Using a sharp knife, carefully cut each Nutter Butter cookie in half.
Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat until the chocolate is melted.
Immediately dip the melted chocolate coated cookie in chocolate sprinkles.
Place a piece of pretzel stick in the center of the melted chocolate/sprinkles edge. If the pretzel stick will not stay, dip it into the melted chocolate and attach.
Store the easy acorn cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.
