Unique dessert for graduation parties how-to:

  • Sour candy belts (pieces cut apart - choose the color that matches the school colors)
  • Bag of miniature Reece's peanut butter cups (wrappers removed after being chilled in the freezer)
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Melted candy coating
  • Godiva chocolate squares
  • Rainbow chip sprinkles (colors that match school colors)
  • Styrofoam block

Place all the Reece's cups on a sheet of wax paper. Dip the ends of the lollipop sticks in candy coating and insert into the candy cups, about halfway. Draw a thin line of candy coating on top of each chocolate square and glue on a short piece of the sour candy belts and the rainbow chip of the same color. Once dry, use more candy coating to glue them to the top of Reece's cup and insert into a styrofoam block.
