Graduation Party

Like most people, I have jumped on the pintrest bandwagon and I am seriously hooked.  You can follow my pintrest boars here if you are interested.  I love finding fun recipes, cute crafts, teaching ideas, and other fun finds.  A few weeks before my brothers graduation party I saw some adorable candies that you can make for graduation.

First these adorable graduation hat candies.  All you need: reese's, Ghiradelli chocolate squares, M&Ms (we picked out the red ones), twizzlers for the string, and frosting to get everything to stay together. 

Next, we made a sweet/salty treat with circle pretzels, hershey kisses and M&Ms.  We got special navy blue and orange M&Ms to represent my brothers college.  All you do: place pretzels on a baking sheet with kisses inside each circle.  Stick in the oven at 350 for about 3 minutes.  Remove and, using the M&Ms, press each kiss down into the circle.  Let the chocolate chill until hardened. You get an adorable snack that represents your graduates future school!

 And of course, we had a great cake!
