We’re -- yes -- nuts for this fall treat idea that’s as easy as it is cute. Just dip the flat side of a Hershey kiss in melted chocolate and attach a bite-sized Nutter Butter cookie, along with a mini chocolate chip to create an “acorn.” Squirrel this recipe away, stat!

The Celebration Shoppe

Dress up your table with this easy-to-make creation: Make (or buy) Rice Krispies Treats and use leftover mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Starbursts from your kid’s Halloween haul. Lightly warm up the Starbursts in the microwave, softening them enough to roll and cut into feather shapes. Attach them to your Rice Krispie bar, add the peanut butter cup face with a little icing, and use sprinkle dots for the eyes and more Starburst for the wattle. Insert a lollipop stick and dessert is served!
