This one’s for the squirrels – Nutter Butter Kiss acorns

Acorn treat made of Nutter Butter bites cookies, Hershey kisses, chocolate chips, and chocolate

This one’s for the squirrels
Who’ve ever had a broken acorn
Who’ve stepped upon a rosy thorn
No more reason to be so forlorn.
This one’s for the squirrels,
Who love their tasty snack
Who dream it’s everything they have
All around the world
This one’s for the squirrels….

Yes, that should be sang to the tune of “This One’s for the Girls”….and then you should never speak of it again. I know it’s not normal for everyone else to sing to their squirrel friends, but I certainly do.

For everyone else, there are Nutter Butter Hershey Kiss acorns. Technically they’re Nutter Butter bites, or they’d be quite the funky shape….although then the squirrels would probably just want them as is instead of in acorn form instead. ;)

Food trucks, but not – Trucks that look like their foods

I actually had a hard time finding information on some of these because any searches that continued both “food” and “truck” automatically brought up a billion different food trucks. I love ‘em, too, but their popularity over the last few years especially is getting a little ridiculous.

Mostly because there’s no way I can try out all the food trucks I want, pfft. :P

Anyway, to the trucks!

Westport Flea Market Bar & Grill – This one is actually one of my favorites. If it weren’t parked outside the sign saying it’s for a bar and grill restaurant, too, I might be a little confused but regardless, I like that the entire vehicle has been transformed into a burger and all its fixig’s.

Pillsbury mini-cookie cups – Miniature sundaes please

chocolate, cookies, ice cream, nuts, recipes | January 17, 2012 | By

Don’t they look like miniature sundaes at the end?

This was the million dollar winner of the Pillsbury Bake Off contest. I’m sure they’d be good with full-size muffin cups, too, and any variety of fillings, ice cream flavors, cookie dough, whatever.

Pillsbury chocolate chip dipped ice cream cone sundaes with raspberries

^ The Wednesday Baker’s version, yum.

1 package (16 oz) Pillsbury® Ready to Bake!™ refrigerated sugar cookies (24 cookies)
4 teaspoons sugar
1/3 cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals® Chopped Walnuts, finely chopped
1/2 cup Hershey’s® semi-sweet chocolate baking chips
1/4 cup Smucker’s® Seedless Red Raspberry Jam
1 1/2 cups vanilla bean ice cream, softened
24 fresh raspberries

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Place 1 cookie dough round in each muffin cup. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

2. Place 2 teaspoons of the sugar in small bowl. Dip end of wooden spoon handle in sugar; carefully press into center of each cookie to make 1-inch-wide indentation. Cool completely in pan, about 20 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix walnuts and remaining 2 teaspoons sugar; set aside. In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring after 30 seconds, until smooth.

4. Run knife around edges of cups to loosen; gently remove from pan. Dip rim of each cup into melted chocolate, then into walnut mixture. Place walnut side up on cookie sheet with sides.

5. In another small microwavable bowl, microwave jam uncovered on High about 15 seconds until melted. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon jam into each cup. Freeze cups about 5 minutes or until chocolate is set.

6. Spoon ice cream into cups, using small cookie scoop or measuring tablespoon. Top each cup with fresh raspberry; serve immediately.
