One of the most popular posts on this blog is the photo recap from my cousin Alexa’s Style Your Sole Party, which you may remember was her way of fulfilling her senior project graduation requirement.
Well, graduation has now come and gone not only for Alexa, but also for my brother Sam, and two other cousins: Evan and Andrea.
That’s right… my family had four kids graduate from the Class of 2012. So, we had one humongous graduation party for them.
I couldn’t show up empty handed so I got together with another one of my cousins to make these graduation cap cookies.
They are perfect because 1. They match the theme; HOORAY for being festive 2. They are no-bake; all you have to do is assemble 3. They are delicious; I didn’t even get one at the party because everybody gobbled them up so quickly!
Graduation Cap Cookies
Prep: Unwrap a package of Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Use kitchen shears to trim Twizzlers Pull ‘N’ Peels into short sticks, then pull apart into individual ropes. Melt 1/2 a package of Nestle Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. Open a package of Keebler’s Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers. And get your squeeze tube of Cake Mate Colored Icing ready.
Assemble: Smear a little melted chocolate on the bottom end of the Reese’s cup. Press a graham on top– the chocolate will be the glue. Squeeze a dot of icing on the middle of the graham cracker and press a licorice rope into the icing.
How easy is that?
