These were made for a wonderful non-profit organization here in Salem, Oregon. They work very hard to acquire grants for other non-profits. Their work has been so appreciated by many here in Salem. When the grant period comes to an end, usually 3 years, they have a graduation party.
If you would like to make these they are easy. The bottom of the graduation cap is a mini-peanut butter cup, the top is a Ghirardelli square, the tassel is fruit by the foot cut (with scissors) into small strips. To attach it all together melt some chocolate candy melts and put the melted chocolate in a pastry bag. Add a dot of melted candy on top of your peanut butter cup and place your chocolate square on top. Next place the fruit by the foot on top of the chocolate square and add a dot of chocolate on top to attach it to the square.
Make your favorite cupcake (these are brownie cupcakes with buttercream frosting) and place on top!! Simple, fun and of course delicious! Happy baking - Cindy
