Back To School Recipes – Disney’s Acorn Treats Recipe

As we head back to school I’ve started thinking about fun and unique treats for my kids lunch box. While I believe it’s very important to have children eat a balanced meal I also believe it’s nice to give them a fun treat every now and then. This recipe is super simple and you could easily make these for a child’s class or a fall party. I subscribe to a number of magazines and one is Disney Family Fun Magazine I came across this recipe in this months issue and have been dying to make it.

Hershey kindly sent my family some of the new Hershey Kisses Air Delight which are just like the Kisses you know and love just fluffy and smooth. They’re a great texture so I decided to use those in this recipe. I also used Disney Cars Pretzels which are fun and also a great treat for a child’s lunch.

Disney’s Acorn Treats Recipe
Prep time: 5 mins
Total time: 5 mins
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Mini Nilla Waffer Cookies
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Pretzels
This is such an easy recipe. Simply place the Hershey kiss on the bottom side of the Nilla Waffer Cookie. The chocolate frosting makes for great glue and to top off the acorn place a small piece of pretzel at the top. Place in the fridge to make the frosting hold and you have a sweet acorn treat.

I am a Disney Brand Ambassador but this post has nothing to do with that program, I simply love fun food!

    So cute and totally doable, even a non baker like me could totally pull that off!

    Those are so cute! Will any kind of frosting work to “glue” the cookie and the pretzel piece in place?
