Chocolate Pilgrim Hats For Thanksgiving

M&M Chocolate Pilgrim HatsI’m getting this posted quite late in the day but I was setting up for a boutique sale at my sister’s house today!  With Thanksgiving only 2 weeks away, I thought it would be fun to post a tasty project for the kids to help make.

Basically, this recipes needs a lot of chocolate:  large peanut butter cups, small peanut butter cups, mini M&M’s and chocolate chips.

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and use a dab of the melted chocolate to attach the small peanut butter cup to the large peanut butter cup.

Pipe a line of melted chocolate around the small peanut butter cup.  I used a sandwich baggie with the corner cut off.

Place the mini M&Ms in the piped chocolate.  I used a contrasting M&M as the buckle.

Chocolate Pilgrim HatsJust be warned, if you make these now, they probably won’t last until Thanksgiving!

  2. I think this would be the perfect little activity for all the kids to do after Thanksgiving dinner.
    So fun and easy that even the little ones could do it!
    I would love if you would share this at my “It’s a Celebration” link party.
    Great idea!
