Chocolate Acorn Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you love to make unique treats for your kids? I have to admit, I love making fun things in the kitchen, especially things that are aesthetically pleasing. The best ones however, are the ones that truly impress all of your guests and are very simple to make. So simple that you can make enough for all of your guests, from start to finish, in less than a half hour! This is one of the reasons why I love our Chocolate Acorn Peanut Butter Cookies.

What we love so much about this recipe is that its not only fast, but simple. Kids especially love eating these yummy treats since they include some of their favorite foods – chocolate and peanut butter! You may even be surprised at just how easy this recipe is to make!
