Acorn Cookie Kisses

This is a great Fall themed treat.  I ran across a site that used Mini Vanilla Wafers for this idea (at Design Dazzle) but I actually baked little tiny sugar cookies.  I think it tastes better and allowed me to make some tiny acorns too, but you could use Mini-Vanilla Wafers instead.  I also added the criss-cross pattern to give it a more "acorn" look. 

Enjoy the Autumn weather!

What you'll need:

Tiny sugar cookies (between 1 and 1-1/4 inch diameter)

Tinier sugar cookies (3/4 inch)

Chocolate chips

Hershey Kisses

Plastic Ziploc Bag


1.  Melt some of your chocolate chip cookies in the microwave at 20 second intervals.  Put the chocolate in a plastic bag and cut a very small tip off the bag.  Pipe a criss cross diamond shape pattern on your cookies, then chill it in the fridge or freezer.  Once the chocolate is dry, add a small dab of chocolate onto a chocolate chip and attach it to the top center.  (For the tiny acorns, pipe a small stem of chocolate to the top center.)

2.  Unwrap a Hershey Kiss and pipe a thick border of chocolate around the bottom edge.  Attach it to the bottom of your cookie, centered. 

3.  For the tiny acorns, repeat step 2 with the smaller cookies and chocolate chips.

4.  Keep the acorns cool so the chocolate doesn't melt.
