Really cute for a party. Tassels hard. I bought cookies already dipped in chocolate.
everyone at the graduation party thought this was fantastic..Lots of people wanted to know how to do them very easy..
this is a very good recipe. i made it for my moms graduation party from nursing school. the tassels were quite hard to make and there needs to be instructions. but overall i thought they were very tasty
I am planning on making this recipe for my son's HS graduation soon. It looks fun to make and delicious to eat! To make it easier, I might buy some miny muffins already made, and buy chocolate covered grahm crackers. Also, I might use frosting in a can instead of whip cream. The tassel might be a challenge, but the whole family can work together. It will make graduation something special to remember!
Doing the tassels was hard. I'd like more instruction on how to form those. Also, storage was difficult because f the cupcakes now took up more room and were very dellicate. Putting the melted chocolate on the graham crackers was hard also. But they did taste good!
I haven't made this as of yet. My daughter will graduate high school this year. I am going to try this, only change the chocolate to white chocolate and use strawberry koolaid instead of orange. :)
My little daugther graduate this year, and I make this delicious cup cakes for she and her friends and was the most fun and original that everybody see, thanks for the idea. Mrs. Chelys
This recipe is great! The instructions about making the tassels made sense to me. Next time, I would like to cover each "cap" with ganache, then top it with the graham cracker. It would be all one color. Or, you could dip the chocolate covered graham in coconut, while the chocolate is still wet. This is such a nice idea for that special graduate.
Ok, everyone. I am pretty sure I know how
they did the tassel, or at least a way that
would definitely work. Cut out a long,
thin strip that leads from the top of the
hat to the tassel part. Then, cut a wider
strip. In that strip, cut little strips
across it the broad way, stopping just
before you reach the far end of the strip.
I tried to demonstrate it below.

white lines are where you should cut. Stop
before you get to the top edge. Once you
finish cutting all the little strings, wrap
this long, wide piece around the slimmer
piece that is connecting it to the
hat. I'm not sure how much sense this
will make to you all. It's hard to describe
without a picture. Good luck, and please
let me know if these directions are clear or
I haven't prepared this treat yet, but I will soon
