Graduation Cap Lollipops

Deneece Gursky


I recently had a big party for my daughter Brittney when she graduated from college. I made these and they turned out so cute! I filled vases with chocolates and stuck these in like flowers and put one vase full on every table. They were a big hit and so easy to make!

Its more of a technique then a recipe lol but I just had to share it : )

  • ·
    1 bag reeses miniatures
  • ·
    3 bags ghirardelli milk chocolate squares
  • ·
    white decorating icing in tube
  • ·
    fruit roll ups (cut into thin slices to serve as tassles on the caps)
  • ·
    lollipop sticks

How to Make Graduation Cap Lollipops


  1. Open the milk chocolate squares and line up on clean tray
  2. open the reeses miniatures and using the white icing from tube "glue" a reeses cup to the middle of each milk chocolate square (the smallest end should be glue to the side of the square that is not smooth, so that the smooth side becomes the top of the graduation cap)
  3. Add a dot of icing to the top of each cap. (only do a few at a time so the icing does not have time to harden)
  4. Now add a piece of the fruit roll up to the dot of icing and then add another dot to the top to cover where the roll up is "glued" to the cap. (this serves as the tassle)
  5. VERY GENTLY push a lollipop stick into the bottom of the reeses cup
  6. Display or wrap in decorative cookie bags and tie with ribbon to use as favors
