Pilgrim Hat Cookies

I think I first saw these in Family Fun magazine eons ago when Rebecca was in preschool. I have made these fun cookies every Thanksgiving holiday for 5 years now. Older kids can help, but the smaller ones are better off watching as this can get messy!

1 package chocolate chips (I am partial to the yellow package we all know and love!)

1 package Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies (the round ones)

1 package large marshmallows

1 skewer or stick (to dip marshmallows in melted chocolate)

1 squeeze tube of yellow frosting, or prepared yellow frosting in pastry bag


Start by melting your chocolate over medium heat in a double boiler.

If you do not have a double boiler you can create one quite easily. Place a medium or large glass or metal mixing bowl in a medium or large saucepan filled halfway with water. (Place the chocolate chips in the bowl)

Stir until melted and reduce the heat to low.

Clear off a large section of your counter top and place some parchment paper or wax paper on a cookie sheet.

Open your marshmallow and cookie packages... place several cookies on a cookie sheet and keep several marshmallows at hand.

Using your stick or skewer dip the marshmallow in to the melted chocolate and make sure that the marshmallow is completely covered. (You may want to use a small knife to help guide the chocolate on and wipe any excess off

Once your marshmallow is fully covered place it on the cookie, chocolate side UP threading the skewer through the hole in the center of the cookie. Carefully set on the cookie sheet and repeat until the sheet is filled.

Place cookie sheet in fridge or freezer so that cookies harden. Repeat until desired amount of hat cookies are made

Once all cookies have set and hardened, pipe a small square in the middle of the base of the marshmallow so that it resembles a small belt buckle. Place on serving platter or dish when ready

I came here through Allie's blog. These look wonderful! I'm sure my son, who loves anything chocolate, will enjoy making these. What size piping tip did you use? And do you prefer a particular type of frosting for this?

I used a really small piping tip... 2.

As the global economy teeters on the brink of disaster, a young Wall Street trader partners with disgraced former Wall Street corporate raider Gordon Gekko on a two-tiered mission: To alert the financial community to the coming doom, and to find out who was responsible for the death of the young trader's mentor.



Please take few seconds to say the magic word - THANKS.

Long lasting lipsticks are so easy to apply. If you can color in a coloring book, you can color your lips. With enough practice you won¡¯t even need to use a mirror.
Instead of using lipstick, you should consider wearing lip gloss or lip shiner especially if you are just going to a casual event or place. Lip gloss keeps your lips moisturized. Dry and cracked lips are a common problem in summer. Always keep a lip gloss in your pocket or purse to keep those lips soft and moist at all times.
