Reviews for Brownie Graduation Caps
"I made these for my eighth grade students who are graduating from Middle school. They loved them and asked me where I got the recipe. They thought the brownies were so creative and they appreciated them so much. These were easy to make and lots of fun. I used chocolate graham crackers for the top of the cap. I probably will make them again another year for my students."
"i made these for 3 grads that are graduating this year. all of them loved them and they were the hit of 3 parties. i used mini brownies rather then making my own."
"Made them for our daughter's graduation. They were a hit - cute and fun to eat."
"I made these as my gift for a young friend's grade school "graduation" using purchased "two bite" brownies from Costco and Sam's Club. Huge hit! She has already requested these treats for her midle school and high school graduations! =)"
"I have made them with mini peanut butter cups. Also delicious and a lot less hassle! You still use the fudge graham crackers and the frosting to stick them together"
