EASY WAYS TO SAVE MONEY ON GRADUATION PARTIES

Senior year of high school or college is an expensive time. When you can find ways to save a few dollars here and there it really helps.

One easy way to save money is to make some of the food for graduation parties yourself. Making these graduation cap cookies will be much more affordable than buying cookies from a bakery.

Here are some more easy ways to save money on graduation:

  • Have the graduation party at your home instead of renting space at another facility.
  • Offer snacks and finger foods, but not a full meal at the graduation party.
  • Partner with another student and their family and have a co-hosted party to share expenses.
  • Send digital invitations instead of formal mailed invites.

INGREDIENTS FOR GRADUATION CAP COOKIES

These simple graduation cookies only require four ingredients. I love low-ingredient recipes!

STEP ONE: MELT CHOCOLATE

Place the milk chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high, stirring every 15 to 20 seconds until the chocolate has melted. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate or it will become tough.

If the chocolate becomes tough then add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or vegetable shortening. Do not add water to the chocolate.

STEP TWO

Dip one side of the fudge covered Oreos in the melted chocolate. Quickly press the branded side of a Ghiradelli chocolate square on the melted chocolate.

You can use any variation of Ghiradelli squares that you like. Personally I love the caramel squares the best!

STEP THREE: ADD TASSEL

Now pipe a small curved line from the middle of each chocolate square to the corner. This should resemble a graduation cap tassel. Add a small dot of icing in the middle at the beginning of the line.

STEP FOUR: SET UP

Set the completed graduation cap cookies on a sheet of parchment paper to set up. Allow these to dry completely before serving or packaging.
