Acorn Treats for St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

Another idea for the November 18 feast of St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, that capitalizes on her connection to oaks (du chêne means “of oak”), is to make some acorn treats. There are a variety of cute autumn themed treats that are made to look like acorns. This one is made with donut holes, frosting and chocolate sprinkles (jimmies).

Donut Hole Acorns 

Donut holes (glazed)
Chocolate frosting
Chocolate sprinkles
Pretzel sticks

Soften the frosting (or Nutella) for 10 seconds in microwave. Dip donut hole in the chocolate. Then immediately dip in sprinkles to coat. In place of the chocolate sprinkles crushed nuts could be used. Stick a piece of pretzel in the top for a stem and let it cool/harden.

This one is made from chocolate kisses and mini vanilla wafers.

Acorn Candy Cookies 

Mini vanilla wafer cookies
Chocolate candy kisses
Butterscotch (or chocolate) chips
Chocolate frosting

Smear a small amount of frosting onto the flat bottom of a candy kiss. Press onto the flat bottom of the vanilla wafer. Smear a little more frosting onto the flat bottom of a butterscotch chip, and press onto the rounded top of the cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients.  I have also seen these made with Nutter Butter bites instead of the nilla wafer minis.

St. Rose Philippine Duchesne, Pray for us!
