Chocolate Graduation Caps

I saw these adorable little candy treats on a television show and thought they were a "must make" for our dessert/snack bar party that I was throwing for my daughter after graduation. Everyone thought they were adorable. They make a fun presentation as well as tasting yummy.

Chocolate Graduation Caps

1 package of Miniatures Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
1 package of Wilton melting chocolate (or some other melting chocolate)
miniature M & M's 
fruit roll ups

Take the wrappers off of the miniature peanut butter cups, turn them upside down on a plate. Melt chocolate according to package instructions. (I used a double boiler and it only took minutes to melt) Spray a baking sheet with pan coating and pour melted chocolate, spreading it very THIN across the entire pan. You don't want it thick or you will have a "thick" top of your cap. Let the chocolate sit and set up. When its set up, cut into small squares. Cut fruit roll ups into thin strips (you'll have to play around with it as you cut them and then you will get them to the size you like) to look like a tassel. To put together use a little melted chocolate and attach the chocolate square to the peanut butter cup, then attach the fruit roll up tassel to the top of chocolate square and then attach the M & M on top of the tassel (refer to picture). This is such a fun little treat for any time, but especially for graduation. 

Happy Cooking~
