Well the calendar says it’s Fall although we are having warmer weather now than we did all Summer long. But I am going to ignore the weather and pretend it’s Fall outside. Today I’m sharing an easy treat to make to add to the top of your Fall Cupcakes. These Candy Acorns only take 2 ingredients and can be made in just a few minutes.

We will get to the Candy Acorns in a minute, but first I have an exciting announcement. A little bit ago I asked on the Hoosier Homemade Facebook Page whether the fans would be interested in a Cupcake Group, where they could share their cupcake pictures, ideas, ask questions and more.

The response was overwhelming – YES! You ask and shall receive…

The Candy Acorns are of course great on top of cupcakes, but you can also put them on top of cookies, brownies or even put them in a bag for a fun treat (maybe for a Fall Party).

Acorn Supplies:

  • Caramels
  • Chocolate Kisses – these are a little smaller than the regular Hershey Kiss, I found them at Albanese Candy Store, but you could use the regular size as well
  • Small amount of melted chocolate
  • Toothpicks

Instructions:

  1. Unwrap caramel and heat in microwave only 4-5 seconds. Be careful they may be hot!
  2. Roll caramel into a ball, then form into a slight cone shape
  3. Melt chocolate in microwave
  4. Dip end of caramel in chocolate and attach to the bottom of the chocolate kiss, mold a little if needed
  5. Using the side of a toothpick, make a few random marks to give the acorn a little dimension
