You’ve been having too much fun at your chili party for a fussy dessert—and everyone’s full anyway. So keep your sweet treat—a chocolate, nut, fruit and acorn cookie platter—easy to assemble and even simpler to serve.

A combination of berries, chocolate and nuts do the trick. On a large platter group the berries in the center. Add chocolate and nuts in piles around the center.  Dot the assemblage with Acorn Cookie Treats. Garnish with mint leaves. Here’s all you need.

Acorn Cookie Treat Recipe:

  • A variety of milk and dark chocolate bars, broken into squares
  • A selection of berries such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries
  • Various nuts like macadamia nuts and glazed pecans
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Hershey Kisses
  • Nutter Butter Bites mini cookies

To make the Acorn Cookie Treats, in the microwave melt a few chocolate chips in a bowl. Stir to make a smooth spread. Dip the top of an unwrapped Hershey Kiss into the chocolate and press onto a cookie, let it sit until the chocolate sets. Continue to dip kisses and cookies. When chocolate has set, melt a few more chips and dip the wide end of a chip into the melted chocolate and apply to the center top of a cookie/kiss treat to made the acorn stem. Let it sit as chocolate sets and continue to add stems to all the treats.
