Graduation Caps


I know it’s already into October and graduation season has been long gone but hey, maybe you are looking for something for that college grad in December/January? Either way hopefully these little graduation caps will give you some inspriration when trying to come up with clever dessert ideas. I first spotted these on Bakerella’s site, she always has great ideas for just about every occasion.  These were a snap to put together and my brother sure enjoyed them for his party!

Bag of Mini Reese Cups
24-32 Chocolate Squares
Chocolate icing
Pull-apart Twizzlers

The above is a list of the supplies I used but have fun in the candy aisle! For the chocolate squares there is a variety of options and I ended up using ones that were Carmel filled. And don’t fret over making icing; buy the stuff in the tubes or in the can. You don’t use much so don’t buy a lot. The same with the tassels, Bakerella recommends Airheads but I couldn’t find any so I used twizzlers instead.


Put the bag of Reese’s in the freezer for a half hour or so. You want them to firm up so when you remove the wrapping the chocolate doesn’t come off.

When you are ready, un-wrap the Reese cups and the chocolate squares. Take your frosting and spread some on the top of the Reese cup. Now attach the square to the Reese.

Cut you tassels to the length you want and put a dot of frosting in the middle of the square and attach the tassel. I put an extra squeeze of icing on the tassel to give it a cleaner look.
