Graduation Caps

Just found this very cute recipe online, from Graduation Caps published in Taste of Home’s Holiday & Celebrations Cookbook Annual 2005, p213. Check out the website for a photo. It looks so much like something my friend Lisa would make for her girls.


  • 24 miniature peanut butter cups
  • 1 tube (6 ounces) decorating frosting in color of your choice
  • 24 After Eight thin mints
  • 24 milk chocolate M&M’s in color of your choice or 24 semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Remove paper liners from peanut butter cups.
  2. Place upside down on waxed paper.
  3. Place a small amount of frosting on each peanut butter cup, and center a mint on each.
  4. Using frosting, make a loop for each cap’s tassel.
  5. Place an M&M on top of each loop.
