“Its the little things that matter, that add up in the end, with the priceless thrilling magic found only in a friend.”
Little things. Can be big things.
A handwritten note. An unexpected phone call. Coffee with a friend.
I find that it is often the minutest of details that seem to matter most.
Recently I helped to plan a local fall women’s event and we chose to hold it at a restaurant. The place was nice enough, but a few little things here and there truly made the day special for the ladies in attendance.
Bright, colorful oak leaves (from the craft store), acorns (gathered by my girlies from the yard) and these adorable little acorn treats strewn about the tables was the perfect touch. Simple. Perfect.
I saw a picture of these treats floating around facebook and immediately took mental note of it. I could not find it again no matter how hard I tried. I do not know who to credit for this nifty idea, but will gladly do so if and when I become aware of it. These were so easy and the women raved about them for days! My little girls were crazy about them, too. Great fall activity for the kids!
Edible Acorn Treats
Mini Nutter Butters (or Ritz Bitz crackers)
Mini chocolate Chips
1. Unwrap the Hershey’s kisses and separate the Nutter Butters so you are all set to go.
2. Melt down some of the mini chocolate chips. I prefer the stove top, but this could easily be done in the microwave, too. (Be careful not to burn the chocolate!)
3. Dip the large end of the Hershey’s kiss into the melted chocolate. Place Nutter Butter on top of the melted chocolate. Dip mini chocolate chip into chocolate and attach to the top.
Voila! Edible acorns!
(Note: For those with peanut allergies, use a Ritz Bitz cracker in place of the Nutter Butter.)
