Thanksgiving Treats: Pilgrim Hat Cookies
- 1 Package of fudge striped cookies
- 1 Package of miniature peanut butter cups
- 1 Tube of decorating icing (orange, yellow or white)
Step 1: Lay the fudge strip cookie upside down on a plate or piece of wax paper, so that the chocolate bottom is facing up.
Step 2: Take the tube of decorating icing and squeeze a dollop of it onto the center of the cookie.
Step 3: Take a miniature peanut butter cup and unwrap it. Place the peanut butter cup (wide part down) on top of the dollop of icing and press down.
Step 4: Take the tube of decorating icing and squeeze a little dot onto the peanut butter cup, so that it resembles the buckle of the Pilgrim hat. Let the cookies sit for a few minutes so the frosting can set.
Step 5: ENJOY!!
*Note: If you can't find fudge striped cookies you can also use Oreo Fudge Creme cookies or chocolate wafer cookies. Instead of using miniature peanut butter cups you can use Rolo candies or big marshmallows dipped in chocolate. To create the buckle on the hat you can use Tic-Tacs, Mini Chicklet gum or mini M&M's. If tubes of decorating icing aren't available in a store near you, just use ordinary canned frosting or make your own.
