Need a super cute and easy edible craft for the kiddos on Thanksgiving?  Follow these simple directions to learn How to Make Dessert Pilgrim Hats that are both tasty and creative! These would also be cute on top of cupcakes or as mini-treats in decorative cellophane bags. I’m thinking of taking them in as class treats!

Chocolate cookies (I used Keebler Fudge Stripes)
Reese’s Peanut Butter cups – miniature size
Red Fruit roll-up
Yellow Chicklet gum
Chocolate Icing


  1. Place icing on the top of a peanut butter cup and attach to the middle of a cookie.
  2. Cut a red fruit roll up into small pieces, about 2 inches long and ¼ inch wide and place it around the peanut butter cup.
  3. Dab a small amount of icing on the chicklet gum and center it in the middle of the hat on top of the fruit roll up piece. This will be the “buckle” on the hat.
  4. Let set for 5 minutes.
