Graduation Cap Cupcake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • plain vanilla cupcakes
  • melted candy melts or white chocolate
  • graham crackers, cut in half
  • sour candy belts or twists (use the school colors!)
  • large sprinkles

Dip the graham cracker halves in the melted candy and then place on a piece of parchment paper to dry. Once solid, use a small amount of melted candy to attach the graduation cap "tassel" using a small piece of sour candy belt. Add a sprinkle to the center of the design. Lastly, cut the tops off the vanilla cupcakes and flip them upside down. Use a dollop of melted candy to attach the graham cracker to the cupcake. Enjoy!
