I loved how simple and easy these cupcakes are. Besides the stuff to make the cupcakes all you need it Hershey kisses and something for the top. I used mini pecan sandies but I know other options are chocolate melting chips or mini Nilla wafers. I also saw some mini nutter butters that would be perfect.
Unwrap all the kisses. I did mini cupcakes with one acorn on each and a few large cupcakes with 2 on top. One bag of kisses is more than enough.
To glue the tops and bottoms I used chocolate frosting. I also added a little stem.
I made a bunch of these first so when I frosted the cupcakes I could stick an acorn to each one.
I couldn’t decide is I wanted to make them green or leave the frosting white. So I made one of each first. I decided I didn’t love the color and couldn’t get the right shade of green.
I know these look very simple but somehow I still manage to make a total mess.
I had some fall leaf sprinkles that were perfect for these cupcakes. Here is the final results.
I brought these cupcakes to the campground for the Halloween celebrations. I had some left over batter so I made some larger ones for the guys at work.
