These chocolate graduation caps are an easy, no-bake treat to make for a graduation party.
If you have a graduate in your family, you're probably awfully busy right now. Not a whole lot of time for whipping up elaborate treats, which is why I kept everything really simple for Colleen's graduation party.
Including these chocolate graduation caps, which took only seconds to put together.
Materials for Chocolate Graduation Caps:
- Reese's miniature peanut butter cups
- Ghiradelli chocolate squares
- a bit of melted chocolate or icing
Note: I used caramel filled chocolate squares, because they're absolutely delicious. But they're definitely weaker than some of the other varieties. Solid versions are a better bet. (Though then you wouldn't get to eat the broken ones.)
Unwrap the chocolates, turn the peanut butter cup upside down, put a dab of melted chocolate or icing on top surface (the bottom of) the peanut butter cup, and set the Ghirardelli square on top. And you're done.
I had some royal icing sitting around, so I piped little icing tassels, too, but that is completely optional. they look like perfect little chocolate graduation caps even without an added little icing tassel.
