No, they are not healthy and yes, far too many wrappers are involved (the waste annoys me), but these little graduation caps are a fun and creative addition to a graduation party. They are super easy to do.
Here is how you too can make them:
First gather the ingredients....you will need miniature peanut butter cups, small squares of chocolate, "writing" frosting, and m&ms or chocolate chips for the tops of the caps..
Begin by placing the peanut butter cups upside-down on wax or parchment paper. I actually stuck my peanut butter cups in the freezer for a little while prior to assembling these so they would be a bit easier to work with. Next, attach the top of the graduation cap by squeezing a tiny bit of icing on the center of the peanut butter cup.
Using the writing icing, make a small "tassle" off of the side and stick a chocolate chip or m&m on top.
Place in fridge until ready to use.
And that's it! A fun and easy little treat for your graduate! :D
