Chocolate Acorns
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 3 dozen acorns
  • 3 dozen Mini Nilla Wafers
  • 3 dozen Hershey Kisses (unwrapped) - any flavor will do
  • 3 dozen chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup melting chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon shortening
  1. Mix together the Melting Chocolate and the shortening. Melt in the microwave in a small microwave-safe bowl at 50% power for about 30 seconds at a time, mixing after every 30 seconds - should need less than 2 minutes.
  2. Line a cutting board with wax paper. Dip the flat side of a Hershey Kiss in a bit of the melted chocolate and place on the center of the bottom on the Nilla Wafer, lightly push down. Repeat with all Wafers.
  3. For the top of the acorn carefully get some melting chocolate on the flat side of a chocolate chip and place in the center of the top of the wafer and push in place to secure. Complete with all Acorns - they can set on the counter or place in the fridge if you need it quick!
  4. Place in a bowl and enjoy
