"After Eight Thin Mints aren't made anymore, but Aldi's brand called Moser Roth Fine Chocolates were the perfect size and the only thing I found that worked. Otherwise it was very frustrating trying to find the After Eight mints! I wish someone could change that original recipe. Party City had M&Ms in all one color which I used (school colors) for the M&M and tassel. A real hit at the party!"

"While I knocked myself out making these for my nephew's graduation party, I'd probably do it again. I used Keebler chocolate covered graham cracker cookies instead of the After Eight thin mints and the peel Twizzler ropes. (Couldn't find mints around here.) The problem with the cookies is that they are rectangular rather than square - but it worked. I also used the peel Twizzler rope and cut them to the appropriate size and make a loop. I also used Kraft Hot Fudge Sundae Topping instead of the decorating frosting. Oddly enough my nephew's Jr. High colors were red and blue, so the Twizzer as the tassel was appropriate. I used only red and blue M&MS. This recipe was quite laborious and expensive. I only made about 30 of these and they cost approximately $7.00 or $.25/each. The kids loved them and were eaten in quickly. Caution - the day I made these the temperature was very hot. I should have refrigerated the peanut butter cups, chocolate cookies, and M&Ms. When I started to work with any of the choclate it started to melt. I refrigerated the tray after I made them, which helped. I also told my SIL not to put them outside."

"I made these tasty graduation caps for a double graduation celebration!! They were easy to make and a big hit - I would definitely make them again! Almost all the ingredients (except the licorice string used for the tassels) were bought at Wal-Mart. I purchased 2 assorted bags (approx 15-20 in each) of the mixed flavor Ghirardelli squares - which made 34 overall (milk chocolate, crisp, caramel, dark chocolate mint, almond & peanut butter squares) over the mini peanut butter cups, to provide a yummy assortment of flavors. I cut licorice sting into two small strips for the tassles and placed yellow & blue M&M's as the cap buttons to match the school colors. Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Milk Chocolate frosting easily held all the pieces together. I started to assemble the caps two nights before. 1st attached the squares to the pb cups w/frosting, then placed in frig to set overnight, meanwhile cut all the licorice tassels same length. On 2nd night, attached the tassels and M&M's. Stored back in the frig until the big reveal. I displayed one of each Ghirardelli flavor label, so they were easily identified by flavor of choice and in the event of any "almond" allergies. These caps are a festive addition to any graduation party, especially for chocolate lovers!! Pam :)"

"Made these last year & were a super hit! I used Giradelli squares, Walmart had them in big variety bags that cut down on cost (variety for guests too...dark chocolate raspberry, mint, caramel I think). Use them upside down so you don't see the writing. Bought big bag of the mini M&M's from the bakery section of the grocery store & only used school colors. Used licorice whips for tassel. Cut them to length and snipped the end for the fluffy part of a tassel. You could use Rolo's too but they would be a bit small under the chocolate square. Any little cut kind of candy you can find is fine. Finally, bought some sucker sticks at the candy making section of Michaels Crafts & turned these into "suckers"! We had a bunch of styrofoam blocks that we poked them into to display and they were so cute. Tip, poke the hole before assembling, then a tiny squirt of frosting to "glue" the stick inside aftterwards. We had an assembly line of siblings, parents & girlfriends and made over 100 in a couple hours. Great fun!"

"The After 8 Mints are a bit expensive for making a treat for 75 people. Anything else a person could use instead? I loved the idea and was planning on using them for my sons party until I saw the price. Help. grp"

"I couldn't find the After Eights either but did find a suitable subsititute:

AFRIKA by Bahlsen. They are a thin wafer with dark chocolate. They came in a rectangular/square container with approx. 32 wafers.My local grocery store (Maine) has very limited varieties so I was shocked to find these. They come from Germany.Worked great.
