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.
