Baking can be a great way to spend some you time. But it can also be a great way to spend time with your kids. Today’s recipe is perfect for just that and can be fun for the whole family. There is no real baking required and you have to do is make the acorns to your liking. We made ours with chocolate frosting and sprinkles but you could use peanut butter for in place of the frosting and crushed nuts, etc. in place of the sprinkles. It’s up to you!
