DIY, Featured, Home  /   /  By Aimee Santos

Every Thanksgiving, each person in my family is responsible for making a dish for dinner. I look forward to trying a new recipe every year! I am usually responsible for dessert and this year I wanted to do something that was fun and interactive for all the kids. Here is a great DIY for Thanksgiving that everyone in the family can join in!

DIY Cookie Acorns, Two Ways

Ingredients:

  • Nutter Butter bites
  • Belvita bites
  • Baking chocolate
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Chocolate morsels
  • Chocolate kisses

Nutter Butter Acorn Cookies:

1. Separate the Nutter Butter Bites in half (setting the non-frosted halves aside for recipe #2). Add a dollop of chocolate frosting onto the frosted side of the cookie—this frosting is your cookie “glue.”
