I made these as a kitschy surprise for my little brother's college graduation party. They were a huge hit!! Like many raters, I used M&Ms over jelly beans (my tassels were red). However, in a pinch, I had to skip the step of coating graham crackers with chocolate, and instead bought those square chocolate covered cookies. They turned out beautifully!
I made these for my son's grad party. All the kids loved them! I just had some trouble getting the tassels to look like tassels.
was a big hit at our pre-school graduation all the kids love that they had real hats that looked the same. I made the frosting part blue like their gowns and caps.
another great idea is to add eyes with m&ms a nose and cut a twizzler for the mouth...use either the coolwhip or frosting to hold it on!
I made these cupcakes for my nephew's HS graduation party and they were a big hit so I decided to make them for my son's graduation and just changed a few things. Instead of jelly beans I found chocolate covered sunflower seeds coated in different colors. The kids really enjoyed them and they looked SOOOOO good. My friends already told me when they have a graduation party they know who to call ...Thanks, michele
A huge hit for our fifth grader's promotion celebration.
I used white frosting on the graham crackers instead of melting chocolate. This also served as the glue & a time saver. I used twizler pull-n-peels for the tassles as another viewer had recommended, but a bit less of them. I took 1 tube from the package, cut it in half. Then split that into sections of 3 strips keeping them connected. Frey each end keeping them connected in the middle. Then, with the 2nd half, cut that in half again, split them into single strands. Bend the 3 strand sections in half, loop the single strand through them leaving it long enough to attach & place on top of the frosted cracker. I then used red m&m's in place of the jelly beans. This ended up adding the best personal touch...the M ended up standing for the town name in which the were graduating from. They were the hit of the party!
i made these in the mini size, they're really cute. i used twizzlers pull and peel for the tassles too, it worked well but didn't drape as nicely as the picture on here. great recipe!
Brought these to a friend's grad party and they were a huge hit! Some suggestions/variations: Worth preparing the graham crackers ahead of time I used regular chocolate frosting instead of the coolwhip (no refrigeration necessary:). I also used twizzlers pull and peel candy for the tassels: cut one string in half, then cut one half in half. Press the smaller pieces diagonally to the bottom of the other piece to make a "tassel." (Trim down as needed) Secure the tassel with frosting and place a brown reeses pieces or m&m on the top. The chocolate frosting and brown colored candy coordinate nicely with the chocolate graham cracker! Definately worth trying again!
they turned out great, however, I could not get the tassels to flare. I put the fruit roll-ups in the fridge, but that didn't help. Please let me know how it worked for u. Thanks
