Oooh! I love acorns, squirrels, deer, leaves and anything remotely fallish! That’s why I’m so incredibly excited to share these adorable, edible mini acorns with you! They’re almost too cute to eat — almost! It’s hard to say no to chocolate and caramel! <3
These are awesome to make with the kiddos to celebrate fall! What kid doesn’t love to dip tiny, marshmallows into chocolate and caramel? And they get to play with toothpicks! You’ll need the ingredients in the image below. Aren’t those yummy ingredients?
Love how pretty these turned out, don’t you? They’re definitely pretty enough to serve upper Thanksgiving or any party that’s fall season related!
We call these mini because they’re the size of those adorable, mini marshmallows you always want to buy but never actually do. Who knew marshmallows could be so fun to cook with?
These are super easy. Don’t you love that? I’m always cautious about trying a 10 step recipe that includes wait times, specific temperatures and yada-yada-yada. I like treat recipes that are super simple and to the point. Take these rice krispie treats that look just like candy corn! They’re crazy cute, but a cinch to make. Plus they’re dipped in chocolate. Oh yeah.
I would recommend laying down parchment paper on your work surface if kids or a messy mom is involved (waving here!) Yeah, I’m a messy cook. Trying to reform my “grab the fridge door with flour hands” habits. But habits die hard, don’t they?
Did I mention you get to dip these cuties in chocolate and caramel? And they’re connected to pretzels? Think loads of salted caramel. Just look at that caramel dipping goodness below! Mmmm….
Ready to make some crazy cute mini acorns? Print out the recipe and get to dipping!! Ok. Over and out my creative mom friends!
