This chocolate peanut butter acorns treats recipe was given to me, last year by a very good friend. I thought now would be a good time to share it with you.  It is the most fun to make especially with your kids, grandkids or just the big kid in you. This recipe couldn’t be any easier, and the results are just adorable and delicious, a winning combinations.   All you need to make these chocolate peanut butter acorns are a few ingredients a bit of time and some imagination.

So lets get started.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Acorns Treats

Chocolate Peanut-Butter Acorns Treats,


  • 24 Nabisco Nut Butter Bits (Mini Round Cookies)
  • 24 Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses
  • 24 Mini Chocolate chips
  • Extra chocolate chips to melt as glue


Chocolate Peanut-Butter Acorns Treats,

Gather supplies and place in bowls. Unwrap the chocolate kisses. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt a small amount of chocolate.  Take a cookie, smear a small amount of melted chocolate on one side and press the chocolate kiss on top and place on the parchment paper to set.  Once set, turn over and place a small amount of melted chocolate on the mini chocolate chip and place on top of the cookies to act as a stem.

Notes: There is really very little to add to these chocolate peanut butter acorns treats.  You can melt the bottom of the chocolate kisses and chips if you’re not interested in melting extra chocolate for glue.  I found it easier to use as glue, but that is entirely up to you.

Chocolate Peanut-Butter Acorns Treats,

Now how fun is that.  These chocolate peanut butter acorns treats could not be any easier.  These little delights make great gifts from the kitchen.  We will make these and add them to our holiday table or as a bit of a surprise with a cup of coffee.  Regardless they are really fun to have on hand for many reasons.

    Hubby would love these as you’ve combined two of his favorite things!

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Jeri, I’m with him. It’s hard to beat chocolate and peanut butter as a combination. :-)

  • Susan Oakes

    What a great idea and they look delicious. Since Costco opened a couple of stores here we can get Hershey’s chocolate kisses so another recipe to try.

    • Susan P. Cooper

      You have a blast making these Susan. They make cute gifts for friends or just as a treat with coffee. :-)

  • Debra Yearwood

    What a clever idea, so cute. I’ll have to do a variation on the peanut butter if I can (my kids are allergic), but wouldn’t that be cute on the table for Thanks Giving? We celebrate in a little over a week and I’m hosting.

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Debra, Try using the mini Oreos in there place. It looks a bit different but just as cute. Great idea!!! I have had them in a bowl on the table at Thanksgiving. It is great fun for all when I do.

      • Debra Yearwood

        Great idea! I’ll give that try.

        • Susan P. Cooper

          When you do, let me know how they turned out. :-)

  • Jon Jefferson

    Those would be great for Thanksgiviing or Christmas trays.

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Indeed they would Jon, They are fun, delicious and cheap to make. You gotta love that. :-)

  • TheGirl

    Quick and easy treats, especially when those school bake sales come around! And like the acorn look, it’s very “autumn”

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Hi SC, That is a great idea. I can see where these would be a hit at a bake sale. :-)

  • Leora Wenger

    Oh, those are adorable! It’s too bad that my child that likes cute desserts hates peanut butter, and my one who likes peanut butter no longer needs cute (did he ever?). Great for autumn.

    • Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Leora, Try making them with mini Oreo cookies. That may solve both problems… LOL.

  • Cheryl Therrien

    OMG How cute AND delicious!

    • Susan P. Cooper
