Chocolate Pilgrim Hats

I know…I know. You’re thinking, “What?! Two cookie projects in one week?!! Launi, Launi–what are you doing?”

Hang on now–admit it. Aren’t these the dang cutest things you’ve seen in a long time? You know they are, so you see? I couldn’t help myself. Here they are…

Start with Fudge Stripe cookies, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups–the little ones,

Fruit roll-ups and Pez–any color. I was a bit disheartened to find that I only had pink Pez. Not sure how the pilgrims would feel about pink…but we forged bravely ahead.

At first, I thought we’d need frosting to glue everything together, but there is an interesting thing that happens when you put chocolate by more chocolate. They tend to stick. So, while I was mocking up the hats with sincere plans to make the frosting later, I came back and found that it really wasn’t needed.

I cut the fruit roll ups into strips with a pizza cutter, in a sort of rounded shape.

The better to lay flat around the hat…with.

Set the Pez up to the seam part of the fruit roll up. Again, I was thinking that we’d need frosting–and of course, you are welcome to use it, but these little beggars held together without it as well. And quite frankly, I’m not a huge icing fan–so why muck up a good thing if you don’t need to?

And there you have it my dears.

I think this yummy project would make lovely little diversions for the “kid’s table” on Thanksgiving.

What do you think?

  1. Dear Gracious!!!
    LOVE LOVE LOVING your site. I found you last week (don’t remember how, just that it was the middle of the night and I couldn’t sleep and was surfing). I have read almost every post that you have written and have enjoyed them all. I have also sent your web address to all my “Crafty” friends. I plan to keep coming back.

  2. Just so you know, the pilgrims actually wore bright colors not just black and white. So I don’t think they should be offended by the pink. It is just right!

  3. You’ve done it again my friend! Does the creativity never end – between the acorns and these my contribution to the day will be impressive (okay I’m bringing real food too but a little something extra on the side will be a fun addition). Thanks for making me look good 😉
