What kind of cookies should you use for these fall cookies?

Definitely small round cookies. We found these Nutter Butter Bites worked perfectly as they are circular in shape and already look like acorn tops!

You’ll definitely need the Hershey’s Kisses for the classic drop shape of an acorn. For the small stem on top a chocolate chip will do. We only had large chips so used those, but these would look even better with regular sized chocolate chips.

Easy Acorn Cookies – Ingredients:

  • Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses
  • Small round cookies (we used Nutter Butter Bites)
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Cookie Icing like this (make sure it’s the kind that dries hard or your chips and kisses will keep sliding off

Easy Acorn Cookies


Step 1. Add a dab of frosting to the center of  your cookie then place a Hershey’s Kiss on top.
Step 2. Add a smaller dab of frosting to the top of the cookie and firmly place a chocolate chip.
Step 3. Lay your acorn cookies sideways so they can set. We like to pop them in the refrigerator for the frosting to”set” for several minutes.
