Autumnal Cheer: Chocolate Acorns

I don't know if you've notiiiiiced, but Pretty Sweet has a new look as of a few days ago. I love the colors and the header so much! It was exactly what I was picturing; Kassie from Designs by Kassie did a fantastic job working with me on this project. I would recommend that you check her out if you're looking into a blog redesign. =)

I've got a couple of more weeks to post in my Autumnal Cheer series again this year. (You can find last year's posts here.) I'm going to try to make the most of it! First off, I want to show you some sweet acorns that my mother made for a church get-together a few weeks ago. She got the idea from a magazine, the name of which I cannot remember right now...I was impressed by how adorable and easy these were to make. I'm envisioning them at fall wedding showers or receptions or on a Thanksgiving dessert table. Super cute! And there's not a real recipe; I won't insult your intelligence.

All you do is melt a small amount of chocolate chips in the microwave. Using that as "glue," stick a Hershey kiss to one side of a mini Nutter Butter. Stick a whole chocolate chip to the other side. Make a bunch more. Ta da! Feel as clever as Martha Stewart, without all the extra work. ;)

Happy Fall, y'all!


  1. Super cute! I totally pinned it.

    BTW, love the new look! Happy Autumn!
