  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Smear a small amount of frosting onto the flat bottom of a candy kiss. Press onto the flat bottom of the vanilla wafer. Smear a little more frosting onto the flat bottom of a butterscotch chip, and press onto the rounded top of the cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Set aside to dry, about 30 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Fun and easy. I think I'll try it with peanut butter instead of frosting next time.

ADORABLE idea! We made these today for a baby shower we're hosting tomorrow (Get it? Acorns because they're adding to the family tree.). Thanks for such a brilliant recipe! :-)
