The kids are back in school and Fall’s around the corner, so it’s time to start thinking about easy recipes (to make) for Fall Festivals, Bake Sales, Classroom parties, Planning Meetings or any Autumn get-together (at work or home)… even Thanksgiving. Here’s one of my Fall treat recipes and best of all… it’s not only YUMMY, but super EASY too!!
Ingredients…. SIMPLE! Hershey kisses (you name the flavor!), “Mini” Vanilla Wafers and Butterscotch Morsels
HELPFUL HINT: I put these acorn treats together on a day when I had a big batch of chili simmering in my crock pot, which gave me a creative idea to try that actually worked great! I realized that placing a Hershey kiss or Butterscotch Morsel up against a very warm surface (no stove top burners, of course, but something like a plugged-in, warm crock pot) provided the perfect amount of heat to soften the bottom of the chocolate and butterscotch morsels, allowing me to stick it to another food item – the vanilla wafers! And I just wiped off the chocolate residue each time. I would imagine an electric griddle would work too and now that I’ve got your imagination working, I’m sure you’ll come up with a few ideas too.
DIRECTIONS: Very important…. lay out (and unwrap) all of your ingredients, allowing you to grab them easily and quickly. Place the flat bottom part of a Hershey Kiss against a very warm surface (like mentioned above), for about the count of 3, remove and immediately stick to the bottom of a mini vanilla wafer. Place the Butterscotch Morsel against the hot surface, for about the count of 3, remove and stick to the top-center of the mini vanilla wafer. You’re done and have made yourself a little acorn mini treat!! Now, go and amaze everyone with your bite-size magic.
