What a sweet idea! My sister is graduating today from Law school, so I made these as a treat. Everyone loved them! I used After 8 chocolate mints for the caps, and mini mint chocolate cups instead of peanut butter, as I thought this would taste better. I also used icing to attach the tassles. They don't seem to sell fruit roll-ups here anymore, so I used fruit by the foot instead. Really cool idea you have here, thanks for sharing :)

These were so cute! My bff both graduated this year, since her party was earlier than mine I made them first for her using chocolate graham crax, and pull&peel twizzlers, the problem was the graham crax were a little to big. For my own party I used the fruit roll up as recommended and very thin hersheys dark chocolate squares and I put 2008 confetti around the plate. I made my sister take pictures of them as well. Everyone loved the creativity.

I made these for our graduation party for my two nephews and everyone thought they were very cleaver and tasted good to boot! I used cut up black and red licorice roll ups that I found in the grocery store bulk candy bin for the tassels. Unwrapping the peanut butter cups was the hardest part, very cute and easy to make.

I made these with my daughter for a neighbor's grad party. We used Giardelli chocolate squares with caramel because I couldn't find chocolate covered graham crackers or After 8 mints. We coordinated the school colors by using an M&M in the center of the cap to "anchor" the tassle which we piped with frosting in the other school color. They were gone in minutes and everyone raved! So cute and so easy too - we'll definitely make them again.

Thank you so much! Made these for my niece's graduation party. Followed recipe except I used melted (good) chocoate dropped and spread with a toothpick to hold them together instead of peanut butter-including dotting it on top to hold the "tassel". After it "set" in the frig, It held together like it was made in one piece! Made 3 dozen for a dessert for a buffett. They're adorable! I twisted two colors (school colors) of the fruit rollup to make the tassels. Took a long time, will not do that agai, even though it looked cool..This is a great idea, and I appreciate it!

I made these for my niece's graduation party. They were a definate hit! I couldn't find the cookies, so I used chocolate graham crackers and they were still good. Made a very cute tray of goodies. Thanks!

How cute and simple can a graduation treat get? Not any better than this! I made a plate of these for a brunch and everyone commented on their taste and "cuteness". Thanks looney!

Yup, these are adorable and SO easy. Just don't set them out in the hot sun like I did. They were a little melted! Thanks for a great recipe that I'll use many more times for many more graduations!
