    Thank you for this recipe. It is sooo good & easy to make. We give it 2 thumbs up!

  13. Our favorite kid-friendly fall recipe is to make “acorns” from nutter butter bites and Hershey kisses. You can use the yummy filling of the nutter butter bites as the glue, and add mini chocolate chips stuck on with melted chocolate as stems (I have a full tutorial on my blog-but it is pretty easy!)
