Begin by filling your snack bags with Reese’s Pieces.  When they are full, tape the “closure down to the bottom of the bag.  For the top of your ear of corn, you will want to tape the closure at an angle to prevent it from showing.  If it isn’t completely smooth underneath, that is okay, it won’t show other then the very top.

Grab one brown paper lunch bag.  Open it up and cut down the side seams to cut in half.  Cut off the bottom.

You should end up with two equal pieces.  At the top of each of these cut 3 lines about 2-3 inches down.  Now you are going to want to take each of those 3 sections and give them a slightly pointy look.  Just trim the sides of them so they resemble a corn husk, not so much a brown paper bag.

Take your baggie of Reese’s pieces and place them in the center.  Make sure your corn husks are a little taller then your baggie, but not a huge difference.  Bunch up the brown paper bag at the base of your snack bag and secure together with a piece of twine or ribbon when you have it positioned the way you want. You should have quite a bit of brown bag hanging over the bottom, that is okay.  We are going to trim it off once your bags are tied together.

graduation pops It is that time of year again… Graduation time!  Lots of parties and memories to be made!  If you are looking for a festive fun little treat to bring the party, take a peek at these Graduation Hat Pops. They are quick and easy and lets face it CUTE as can be.  Plus you can make them in lots of colors to make them fit your school colors.

graduation pops

To make these you will need:

  • Mini M&Ms
  • Mini Reeses (come in a bag in the candy bar section of the store)
  • Mini Hershey’s plain chocolate bars (came in an 8 pack in the candy section)
  • Air Head Extremes
  • Sucker sticks

Start by  unwrapping you mini chocolate bars and cutting them into 2 squares.  You will have one skinny piece left over save that to melt for putting them together.  You do not need them all so if you need a chocolate fix go ahead and eat one 🙂

 Take the skinny piece of chocolate left over and melt it so you can use it as “glue” to put your caps together.  I put mine in a glass bowl for 3o seconds, they do not look melted but once you touch it, it is soft and melted.  Gently twist the sticking into the wide end of the reeses mini.  Then dip the skinny end in chocolate and “glue” it to the bottom of the square piece of chocolate.  You will want to make sure you stick it to the side with words, so the smooth side will be the top of your cap.

If you are in a hurry put them in the freezer to harden the chocolate, I just let them set a few hours then came back to finish after the chocolate had set.

Use scissors to cut the air heads into thin sections, attach them with melted chocolate to the top of the cap.  Top it off with a mini M&M.  I made a stand to hold mine out of scrapbook paper and a styrofoam block.
