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
-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.
