Graduation Party Cookies

large marshmallows
reeses peanut butter cups
chocolate covered graham crackers
pull apart strings of licorice
vanilla frosting
gel icing in Tube
toothpick, Bamboo spear or shishkabob sticks
small candies

These are the perfect thing for a graduation party, no matter if
it's Kindergarten or College. The cookies are little graduates
and don't require any cooking, just some assembly. The marshmallow
is the head, the peanut butter cups and graham crackers combine to
make the cap and the licorice is the tassel that holds it all
together. The licorice is remarkably strong and threads through
each piece easily.

Placing the marshmallow flat side down, use the icing as an adhesive,
and paste two small candies (little colorful flowers or stars work
best) on each marshmallow to make eyes. Use gel icing in a small
tube (sold in just about every store) to paint smiles on each
marshmallow. Let dry briefly.

Using a large toothpick, bamboo spear or shishkabob stick, drill
a small hole through the center of each graham cracker and peanut
butter cup. Make a slim hole straight through the marshmallows
from the bottom of face to the top of the head. Pull licorice into
individual strands and lace one through the marshmallow, tying it
into a sturdy knot at the bottom of head. String the licorice
strand through an upside down peanut butter cup next, then through
the graham cracker. Secure all the pieces and tie at the top,
leaving about 1-2 inches of the strand to look like a tassel. Use
a paring knife to split the tip of the strand into two or three
smaller strands, resembling the end of a tassel.

I made these for my granddaughter's preschool I substituted caramel cups for peanut butter cups. I also skipped the threading of licorice. I used frosting to connect marshmallow and cookie. It was also faster to just use frosting for eyes. These were a huge hit with the kids. Adorable!
