A member of another message board I frequent posted the link for these "Edible Acorns"....I made a platter of them recently for my husband's birthday and the grownups were crazy over them...No baking involved so super easy...The "acorns" would look cute on a tray covered with faux leaves but I had used all of mine in my Fall arrangements, so I had to settle for a doily...Here's the "Recipe":
bag of doughnut holes (found mine at Food Lion and had about 2 dozen in bag)
partial bag of toffee bits or you could use finely chopped nuts of your choice
icing of your choice (I used chocolate) or you can use peanut butter
a few pretzels, broken for little short stems
Ice top part of a doughnut hole with either icing or peanut butter. (I iced the tops of the doughnut holes and coming down the sides a little bit too)..roll iced part in toffee bits or finely chopped nuts...insert pretzel "stem" and place on tray...It's that easy!
