Simple Thanksgiving treats for kids

So cute and clever!
The boys favorite part was making the buckles.
Pilgrim Hat Thanksgiving Treats

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

1. Place the cookies upside down on a cookie sheet.
2. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave.
3. Stick a toothpick in the marshmallows and dip them into the chocolate.
4. Place the marshmallows on top of the cookies using a second toothpick.
5. When the hats cool and harden, use the frosting to create a buckle on each hat.

They are ready for our Homeschool Thanksgiving Party.
(I doubled the recipe to make 48 hats.)

Don't you just love these?

My middle son was so proud of himself when he thought of a new way to make pilgrim hats this year. He used miniature Reese's peanut butter cups and Oreos. So simple and cute!
