Do you have a 2024 grad this year? I do!
My son is a senior in high school this year and busy doing all the fun senior things. I am hoping to throw him a big party as this is an important milestone that we are excited to celebrate! I cannot believe how fast my kids have grown up and wish time would slow down sometimes just a bit.
Sourcing the ingredients list from the grocery store is easy!
I used various flavors of Ghiradelli chocolate squares for the hats and pull-apart Twizzlers to make a fun tassel. There are different options for candy, so feel free to switch up ingredients if desired. If your graduate has a white graduation cap, consider using the white chocolate squares!
This was a fairly quick craft food project to do and something the family could easily help out with and do together.
Easy Graduation Cap Party Treats
These mini graduation caps are adorable and make for some tasty party treats!
Extra tips for making Reese’s graduation caps:
- I used a store-bought bottle of decorating icing that hardens when dried, and it worked very well. I’d use that instead of a softer frosting.
- If you didn’t want to use Twizzlers as a “tassle” consider using another color icing to draw on frosting.
- If there is a nut allergy, instead of Reese’s chocolate cups maybe use Rolos candy instead!
- Starting with very cold chocolate is helpful. I started with room temp and quickly noticed some melting while putting these together.
These graduation treats are so CUTE!
What a fun and simple food craft to make for a party or as a gift. You can even customize the colors for your school and really make it special. Enjoy, and congratulations to all your graduates! 🙌
I tried to pull off a candy bouquet using cake pop sticks, and it was a fail!
This is honestly so cute and fun using styrofoam as the base with tissue paper. I have done this in the past with no problem, but last week I tried it and my Reese’s just sort of slid off on half of them! LOL It was a fail for me. If you have done this recently and have tips I am all ears. Maybe using Rolo candy would have been sturdier!
