Graduation Cap Cupcakes

Do you have someone graduating? Maybe from grade school, junior high, high school, or college? When I graduated, I didn't want a big party just something small. When my daughter graduated, I threw a nice party. One of the dishes I made was these cupcakes. They are pretty easy to make and fun to assemble.
Graduation Cap Cupcakes
12 cupcakes
12 oz. mini semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of frosting
12 pieces of Twizzlers, cut into small strips (may have to flatten)
12 brown mini M&M's candies

  1. Line parchment paper on the back of a cookie sheet.
  2. Spread the melted chocolate over the parchment paper in a thin layer. Allow to cool in the refrigerator for about 3 minutes.
  3. Remove the chocolate from the refrigerator and cut into 3 inch squares.
  4. Place a piece of parchment paper on top of the chocolate.
  5. Place another cookie sheet on top of the parchment paper to flatten the chocolate. 
  6. Refrigerate the chocolate for at least 10 minutes so the chocolate hardens.
  7. Remove the harden chocolate from the refrigerator.
  8. Take a cupcake and turn it over so the base is facing up.
  9. Frost the base of the cupcake.
  10. Place a piece of the harden chocolate square on top of the cupcake.
  11. In the center of the chocolate square, place a dab of frosting. 
  12. Place the edges of two different color small strips of the Twizzlers.
  13. Cover the two edges of the Twizzler which are in the frosting with a dab of frosting. 
  14. Place a brown mini M&M piece on top and press down to seal. (Make sure the M is facing downwards.)
  15. Make sure the graduate receives a cake before others.
