Makes: Makes 24 cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 12 Nutter Butter® cookies
  • 12 small pretzel sticks
  • 6 ounces chocolate candy coating
  • ⅔ cup chocolate sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Cut the Nutter Butter® cookies in half through the center point. Break the pretzel sticks in half.
  2. Melt the candy coating according to package directions.
  3. Dip the cut end of a cookie into the candy coating, covering only about one-quarter of the cookie. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate sprinkles over the candy coating.
  4. Dip the end of a pretzel stick into the candy coating and then attach it to the candy coating on the cookie; this becomes the acorn’s stem.
  5. Place the cookie on waxed or parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining cookies. Allow them to dry until the candy coating is firm to the touch.
