Little things.

“Its the little things that matter, that add up in the end, with the priceless thrilling magic found only in a friend.”
–Elizabeth Dunphy
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
Hershey’s kisses
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.)
“If you’re honest in small things, you’ll be honest in big things…”
Luke 16.10a (MSG)

  1. I saw this too….I was thinking Julie posted it! Don't remember if she said where she got it, but I thought it was a great idea too!
    Also, we had our first batch of breakfast bars this morning…yum! Josiah even liked them! 🙂 Thanks for the recipes!

  2. So my sister says I should mention that I actually took the above photo of the edible acorn. She thought I stole it. (If you saw the camera I was working with, you'd never believe it, either.) Good lighting and decent editing, I guess. It's mine!!! 🙂
