Super easy, fast and very yummy! I used chocolate gram crackers, Devils Food cupcake mix and left out the cool-aid. Instead of using the fruit roll ups as the tassels I used Twizzlers pull and peel. MUCH faster and MUCH easier! I left out the M&M and it still looks really cute. My sister loved it and the 24 cupcakes were gone in 10 minutes at the party! it was a HUGE success! I'll definitely be making them again!
So easy and fast! Buy the chocolate covered cookies, no kool-aid, use M&Ms or jelly beans and fruit rolls in the school color and use frosting instead of cool whip. Piece of cake - literally! Tassles weren't hard to make, just use your imagination.
Very easy and went great with our daughters graduation party
They were really cute, but time consuming. I also would have used icing instead of Cool-Whip. I had to refrigerate them after they were made because of the Cool Whip and the cake hardened along with the fruit roll-up. Very cute though!
Here is my version of this recipe: Chocolate cake mix, plain chocolate graham crackers, chocolate frosting. blue m&ms, blue fruit roll up. The fruit roll up wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I refrigerated it, but that didn't make a difference at all. It returned to room temp very quickly. Maybe I'll try freezing it next time??? If you are considering making these you should go for it. It's not that difficult, you can change any part of the recipe to make it work for you or for what you have on hand. These cupcaps have a huge wow-factor for parties. They will be a hit!
I made these for my grad party and everyone loved them! I didn't use the Kool-Aid mix and I thought it tasted fine without it. Try using Twizzler's Pull N Peel licorice for the tassel and take kitchen scissors to snip tiny fringes along the ends- it's a lot easier!
WOW! This recipe was the best! Even though the tassels proved a challenge. They took about a half hour for the 24 we made. It was easier to make them in two pieces, string and fringe. Wrapping the fringe around the string made them look just like the picture.!! They were amazing. We used frosting instead of cool whip, and took the shortcut of buying already dipped grahams. This cupcake is a hit and we will be making it again this comming weekend for another grad party hostess treat. Thank you Kraft Foods for making me into an amazingly talented cook, once again.
This seems like a GREAT! idea..I would try with the personalized mms that u can order now from online...which would make it even more special!!!
I made these for my younger brother's graduation at Sorbonne, France. I did not use the Kool-Aid and I made devil's food cake chocolate cupcakes. I did not make my own chocolate squares; as I simply took chocolate squares from a box. Much easier!
