This is a post from last year that I want to share again because even though I don’t have a graduate this year, many of you do! This is an easy chocolate graduation dessert that is both festive and yummy. Enjoy!

graduation caps sweet treats

l saw these cute graduation caps over at Lil’ Luna. {Of course I pinned them to my Pinterest board}. With my daughter graduating from high school, I decided to use Kristyn’s idea, but use different ingredients because I was in a bit of a time crunch. Instead of mini muffins, I used mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. For the mortar boards I used chocolate graham crackers. For the tassels I used Twizzlers. To glue everything together I used frosting. I cut the Twizzlers at the end to make them look like tassels. Red M&Ms were used for the tops.

They turned out looking a lot like Kristyn’s.

I put them on upside down bowls {I called them pedestals} and decorated the table with them. They looked cute and were pretty tasty.

    I picked up my family size bag of peanut butter cups to make these last weekend. I was going to grab chocolate for the top but now I’ll have to look for chocolate graham crackers. Thanks so much for sharing at Whmsy Wednesdays.
