Thanksgiving Party Favor Idea: Candy Acorn Treats

When hosting a large group it’s always fun to pass out a sweet treat as a favor, and these candy acorns could not be cuter.  When I was creating the Thanksgiving kids table post (link) I wanted a festive treat that used familiar candies that kids love.  These candy acorn treats were simple to put together and as you can see from the images below, my toddler loved making them.  Easy to assemble and devour, get your little kitchen helper involved in making the Thank You Favors.  There is a lot of room to be creative with this treat, different flavor chocolate kisses, frostings and don’t forget mini-vanilla wafers for the top too.  Have fun with this one and Happy Thanksgiving!
