This time of year resonates with graduations and celebrations. Whether it’s graduation from preschool, kindergarten, high school, college, or beyond, here’s a sweet way (pun intended) to show the graduate in your life you care.
- Colored Twizzlers
- Ghirardelli square chocolates (or any square chocolate you can find)
- Mini M&Ms
- Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
- Lollipop sticks (I happened to have Wilton 6″ lollipop sticks)
- Lighter or matches
- A foam board, cake pop stand, or something to place the finished product in
As you can see from the picture above, I used the mini M&Ms and Twizzlers for the tassel. To “glue” them on, I used a lighter to melt the chocolate on the square. The melted chocolate worked as my adhesive. Once those pieces set, and after inserting the lollipop stick into the peanut butter cups, I used the lighter to melt the bottom of the square (the part with the Ghirardelli writing) so that I could stick the peanut butter cup to it.
Noosheh jaan (enjoy)!
