These are Thanksgiving cupcakes, there is no doubt about it. I tried to place them in multiple categories and you really can’t. Fall cupcakes?? Maybe.
The design of these cupcake are just divine because the acorns are brilliant. If you look closely you can see that they are made from Hershey’s kisses and they have Nutter Butter Mini’s as tops. When you twist the minis apart, there is still just enough peanut butter there (resist the need to lick) and use that peanut butter to stick to the Hershey Kisses. Then use a chocolate chip for the little acorn stem.
The hardest part of the whole damn recipe was the stem! The recipe will tell that the heat from your hand is enough to melt the acorn stem to the top of the “Nutter Butter” mini. I must be cold blooded because it didn’t melt. What I ended up doing using a warm cup of coffee and pressing the chip up to the cup. Then I stuck it right to the top. Worked like a charm. Let’s see how well you do. Hit the Button and BAKE!
