  4. Dip the end of a pretzel stick into the candy coating and then attach it to the candy coating on the cookie, this becomes the acorn's stem.

  1. Are you sure your ingredient list is correct? 24 cookies cut in half would yield 48 halves. 12 pretzels cut in half would yield 24 halves. Not enough pretzels for each cookie half, and the total yield would be 24 cookies with stems and 24 without........
      • No problem! I could figure out to cut more pretzels or reduce the number of cookies but was concerned if the adjustments would throw off the amount of candy coating and just which way I could expect that to go! This would be a great recipe for using up some left over candy coating but I hate to get in a recipe only to find out I am running short on something! Thanks for the clarification!
