Your little critters will go nuts for these adorable Nutter Butter Acorns! Made with peanut butter cookies, chocolate coating and a salty pretzel stem, they’re such a cute and delicious fall treat!



  1. Cut each cookie in half crosswise.
  2. Melt the chocolate candy melts or coating according to package directions.
  3. 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.
  4. Dip the coated end into the bowl with the chocolate sprinkles, then immediately dip the broken end of a pretzel stick half into the melted chocolate and press it into the chocolate-dipped side of the cookie so it stays as the candy coating sets.
  5. 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.
