How to Make Nutter Butter Acorns

  • Cut each Nutter Butter cookie in half crosswise.
  • Melt the chocolate candy melts or coating according to package directions.
  • Put the chocolate sprinkles in a small bowl. Dip the cut side of the cookie half about a quarter of the way into the melted chocolate coating and let the excess drip off.
  • Dip the coated end into the bowl with the chocolate sprinkles, then immediately stick the broken end of a pretzel stick half into the dipped side of the cookie so it stays as the candy coating sets.

  • Lay flat on a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper (on the counter or over a cutting board or baking sheet) until the chocolate sets. Then repeat with remaining cookie halves.

How to Store Nutter Butter Acorns

You can easily make these Nutter Butter acorns in advance! Just store in an airtight container at room temperature and they’ll last for a week, maybe even two! I would not suggest freezing them as it would affect the texture.
