Too cute! These are so simple, and leave you kicking yourself saying, "Why didn't I think of these"? I guess that's why it's just such an ingenious little recipe! The best part is eating the ones you don't need for decorating! These are great to put out in candy dishes too. Thanks for yet another great recipe, What's for dinner, mom?

I made these at Thanksgiving to put out with appetizers as a little sweet treat and they were gone within the first half hour!! I used mini Nilla wafers since they are the perfect size for the Kisses. I also subbed peanut butter for the frosting...I thought it made the fact that the Nilla, Kiss, and butterscotch chip were pasted together less noticeable. Great recipe!!!

I recommend that if you are using these for cupcake decorations to put them on just prior to serving as the cookie will absorb the moisture from the frosting and become soft. Also, I have found NutterButter Mini cookies that are perfect for these! The tops look textured like an acorn. These are fun and easy for kids to make!
