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


  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
