Yummy Pilgrim Hats

As a former teacher, I used to love to have "my kids" make cute themed snacks.  This one was always a big hit. 

24 chocolate-striped shortbread cookies
12-ounce package of chocolate chips
24 marshmallows 
tube of yellow decorators' frosting


Set the chocolate-striped cookies stripe side down on a wax-paper , spacing them well apart. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave, periodically stirring.  One at a time, stick a wooden toothpick into a marshmallow, dip the marshmallow into the melted chocolate, and promptly center it atop a cookie. Using a second toothpick to lightly hold down the marshmallow, carefully pull out the first toothpick. Chill the hats until the chocolate sets, then pipe a yellow decorators' frosting buckle on the front of each hat.

Alternative:  Use Reese's Peanut Butter Cups instead of marshmallows.  You will only need about 1/4 cup of melted chocolate chips.  Dip the top (wide part) of Reese's in chocolate and place on cookie. and finish as above.
