Marshmallow Pilgrim Hats

Last night I tried my hand at making these adorable marshmallow pilgrim hats.  Mine don’t look nearly as good as the ones in the photo at Family Fun but I love them anyway.  They were so easy! And turned out so cute!

These photos are extremely crappy due to the poor lighting situation in my kitchen at night.

The cookies were also extremely messy to make.  I’m kind of glad that I did not involve the boys.  Given that I was covered in milk chocolate, I can only imagine what the boys would have looked like!

I used milk chocolate instead of a dark or semi-sweet chips so the tops of my hats don’t exactly match the bottom of the fudge striped cookies.

I did not use the fine tip to draw a little square buckle on the brim of the hats.  I found the Easy Squeeze icing that I used was a little too thick even after kneading it until my hands cramped…  The flower tip worked well to give the impression of a buckle.  I suppose I could have made up a batch of my own icing but it was late.  And even I am not crazy enough to whip up the measly one ounce of yellow icing for required for hat buckles…

The kids are going to be so excited when I bust these out for snack!

    Cute! Next time you could easily make some simple glaze with powdered sugar and water and food coloring, though. Just make it nice and stiff, so it will hold its shape. 🙂
