Ingredients

  • 12 oz peanut butter
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pound powdered sugar
  • 16 ounces semi sweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces for the stems

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a mixer, beat peanut butter and butter. Stir in vanilla. Add powdered sugar and beat on low speed until smooth.
  • Roll into 1 inch balls and place in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
  • Place the chocolate in a deep bowl and microwave for 10-15 seconds at a time, stirring between intervals, until melted.
  • Spoon a little chocolate on the top of each peanut butter ball so they look like little "caps". Poke a walnut piece into the top of each acorn while still melted.
  • Cool completely to harden.
