Such a cute treat for Fall - and a great activity for kids to help out with!

Unwrap your Hershey's kisses.
Melt your milk chocolate chips in the microwave. 20 seconds, stir, then 10 second increments until it's smooth, stirring in between. Amount depends on how many you're making. I think I used about 1/4 C.
Dip the flat end of your Kiss into the melted chocolate -you will probably have to remove some excess on the side of the bowl.
Press your dipped Kiss onto a sandwich cookie.
Dip the flat end of a semi sweet chocolate chip into the melted chocolate. Press it onto the other side of the sandwich cookie.
Place on wax paper to harden.
*You might have some sandwich cookies that are broken apart. That's okay, the "acorns" look just as cute with 1 cookie.

Hey, Jenni, how do you come up with these sweet snack ideas? This one sounds great too! Hoping to make these soon too!

Haha! I found a picture of these online when I was looking for ideas for a 'Fall' themed birthday party. They didn't have instructions, so I just kind of figured them out.
