Too cute! These are so simple and leave you kicking yourself saying "Why didn't I think of these"? I guess that's why it's just such an ingenious little recipe! The best part is eating the ones you don't need for decorating! These are great to put out in candy dishes too. Thanks for yet another great recipe What's for dinner mom? Read More

Cute little cookie for Thanksgiving. Didn't particularly get or like the flavors all together. Maybe if I had used peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch. Read More

To those who do not agree with the butterscotch chip on the top - I used that due to ALLERGY issues. I never make peanut butter ANYTHING when giving food to anyone so I used the butterscotch. Please use whatever flavor you like I recommend that if you are using these for cupcake decorations to put them on just prior to serving as the cookie will absorb the moisture from the frosting and become soft. Also I have found NutterButter Mini cookies that are perfect for these! The tops look textured like an acorn. These are fun and easy for kids to make! Read More

I made these at Thanksgiving to put out with appetizers as a little sweet treat and they were gone within the first half hour!! I used mini Nilla wafers since they are the perfect size for the Kisses. I also subbed peanut butter for the frosting...I thought it made the fact that the Nilla Kiss and butterscotch chip were pasted together less noticeable. Great recipe!!! Read More

YUMMY! I used Nutter Butter Bites in place of vanilla wafer cookies and Reese's Peanut Butter Chips in place of the butterscotch chips. To attach I melted some of each candy and dipped into it so it wouldn't show where it was attached. They were YUMMY! My reason for the change is that I was looking for something peanut butter for my step-father. This recipe is going to make him so happy. The hardest part is keeping Hubby away from them. I know I have to make more! Thanks WFDM for another YUMMY recipe! Read More

I loved the way these looked and had to try them when I saw them! I had some butterscotch chips in the freezer and some leftover thick buttercream frosting so all I had to buy was the kisses and wafers. And I did get the mini because they seemed the perfect size. Although I did not make all 24 I had fun making the ones I did. I know my neice and nephew will like these way better than the acorns they have helped me clean-up in the yard! And they will be perfect again on some fall cupcakes.:) Read More

As soon as I saw these I just knew I had to make them for my Thanksgiving cupcakes! These are not only easy and adorable but they are yummy too (believe me I 'taste-tested' enough to know lol)! I like to surprise my guests each year with a new confection and I can't wait to see the look on their faces tomorrow when they see these. Thanks WFDM for such a cute idea that I know will be part of many MANY fall desserts to come!:) Read More

These are SOOOOOOO fun! I made them using the almond filled kisses mini Nutter Butter sandwich cookies (pulled apart) and mini chocolate chips. The kids really liked the design on the Nutter Butters and the chocolate/peanut butter taste! Read More
