  • Place a miniature peanut butter cup upside down on a work surface; top with a dab of frosting. Center a chocolate-covered graham cracker cookie onto the frosting to make a small cap with a mortarboard. Gently press the cookie onto the peanut butter cup.

  • Place a small dab of frosting in the center of the graham cracker cookie and attach a red licorice string as a tassel, letting the tassel drape over the edge of the cookie. Place a candy-coated milk chocolate piece onto the center of the cookie over the end of the tassel to make a button.

  • Repeat with remaining candies and cookies to make 50 graduation caps with tassels.

These are very cute and easy to make. I use Ghirardelli squares instead of graham cracker cookies. To make it easer to center the peanut butter cup I place a Ghirardelli square (flat side down) on the table put a dab of frosting on the bottom of the peanut butter cup and place it in the center of the square then turn the cap over and place the tassel and candy-coated chocolate piece in the center.
