Can You Eat Acorns?

Well, these you can!

This is our week to do snacks at preschool. Because we had family in town, I actually just sent Stephen to the store late on Sunday for a last-minute pickup of string cheese, juice, applesauce and fruit snacks. But tomorrow's snack will have a little "umph"! I'm doing just simple stuff again (Go-Gurt and either pretzels or zucchini cookies) but we're also having acorns!

So easy I thought you might want to follow these easy instructions and do it yourself!

All you need is:
  • Hershey's chocolate kisses
  • Mini Nilla wafers
  • Thin pretzel sticks
  • Chocolate icing
Put a tiny bit of icing on the wafer. Stick the flat side of the kiss to the underside of the wafer. Put a little dab of icing on the top of the wafer and break a tiny piece of pretzel off. Put the pretzel in the icing. They will need to set for an hour or so.

I love this idea and it only took me 10-15 minutes to make about 30! (The worst part is unwrapping the kisses!) Anyone else have cute snack ideas to share?

Brilliant. Why couldn't I have thought of that?
