How to Make Nutter Butter Acorn Cookies

For easy cleanup, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Use a knife to cut 15 Nutter Butter cookies in half. Break pretzel sticks into 1 inch pieces and set aside. Pour chocolate sprinkles into a shallow bowl.
Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat in 30 second increments until chocolate chips are completely melted.
While holding the uncut end of the cookie, dip the cut end into the melted chocolate to cover about 1/4 inch up the cookie.

Insert a pretzel stick into the end of the cookie that was dipped into the chocolate.
Dip the chocolate end of the cookie into the sprinkles being careful to cover both sides.
