DIY Marshmallow Graduation Caps!

Hey All!

If you’re graduating from school or have a special kid or someone in your life who is graduating, you’re most likely going to throw them a graduation party. You’re going to need some easy and cute graduation treats, hence why I’m here to save the day with these yummy DIY Marshmallow Graduation Caps! They are super easy to make and they will be the perfect treat to serve your guests at your graduation parties. They didn’t come out as perfect as I wanted, but heck they are still cute and I wanted to share them with you anyway!

Here is what you’ll need to make them!

  • Large Marshmallows
  • Graham Cracker Squares
  • Wilton Black Chocolate Melting Discs
  • 1 pkg. M&M’s Candy
  • 5 Spools of Embroidery Thread in multiple colors

First, you’ll cut the graham cracker squares into 2 inch square pieces. You can make as many of these as you’d like.

You then take your marshmallows and cut about 1/3 off each one and discard. Keep the other piece to use for the hat.

Now take your wilton discs and put in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Continue to do this until all discs are melted. Coat each marshmallow in the melted chocolate and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet to dry.

You then coat each graham cracker piece with the chocolate, and set each on top of a marshmallow. Place an M&M on the center of each one and let them dry and harden.

Take a package of the embroidery thread, and spread out to look like a circle. Cut about an inch of the bottom and cut down the fold line at the top. You should have 2 bundles of thread. Remove one thread from each bundle and set aside. Divide each bundle into 2 equal bundles, so you now have 4 bundles of thread. Fold each bundle in half.

Take the threads you set aside earlier and tie around each folded bundle and knot it. Make sure you tie it about ½ inch from the top of the folded part, so there will be a lot of long threads hanging down to resemble a tassel.

With the excess thread attached to the knot you tied, tie these 2 pieces together to form about a 1 inch loop.

Attach your loop around the M&M on each hat. The tassel will hang down and now trim it to the length you would like.

That’s it! You’re done! Serve and enjoy them to your grads and party guests. They make a great fun treat for graduation parties!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Congrats to all the grads out there! You did it!
