{Chocolate Covered Pilgrim Hats- A Sweet Thanksgiving Treat!}

I made these little Chocolate covered pilgrim hats last year with my kids on Thanksgiving day!  They were a hit.  I am definitely not a chocolatier, that’s for sure…in fact I could use some classes, but these were really fun to make and turned out pretty cute.  Maybe this year they will look even better, since I have had some practice.

To make these mini pilgrim hats, you will need:

-Fudge striped cookies

-Large Marshmallows

-Chocolate Chips (I like milk chocolate) *I always add a 1/2-1 tablespoon of butter or butter crisco to my chocolate so that it is easier to dip my strawberries, marshmallows or whatever I am trying to cover in chocolate.

-Frosting gel or tubes…black and yellow

First, grab a cookie sheet and layout the fudge striped cookies, stripes down.

Next, melt your chocolate in the microwave or using a double-broiler.  Then dip your marshmallows.  You can place a marshmallow on top of a cookie and then use a knife to finish covering the whole top. 

Let these cool in the refirgerator for a couple of hours.

After the hats have cooled, you can add some black piping around the base of the hat and a buckle. 

And there you have it, a very cute chocolate treat-pilgrim style!

    This is way cute, and something I’m definitely going to do this year. One suggestion, don’t know if it will be easier or not, but I’m thinking I might poke the marshmallow with a toothpick, dip the whole marshmallow and then stick the toothpick thru the center of the cookie. I would imagine when the marshmallow touches the cookie that i should be able to pull the toothpick out easily and then set the whole cookie/marshmallow down.
    If this makes it easier, GREAT! If not….please disregard the suggestion. :-)

      This was a GREAT suggestion! I JUST made them (waiting for them to cool as I write). I poked with a toothpick, dipped in chocolate and tapped the toothpick on the side of the bowl and the chocolate smoothed out perfectly! I grabbed the toothpick from the bottom of the cookie and these came out just so perfect! Thanks to Jamie for this incredible idea! I’m also going to make little name tags, place them on toothpick and insert them into the top of the hats for pace cards. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
