With Thanksgiving next week, I’ve been having fun doing activities with my kids as we talk about the history of Thanksgiving and what we are thankful for in our lives. Sometimes it can be hard to discuss the bigger meaning with children, but there are some fun activities, crafts and snacks to get the conversation started!
These Pilgrim Hat Cookies are SO easy to make – and delicious too! Chat with your kids about the Pilgrims and the First Thanksgiving!
Fudge Stripe Cookies
Reese’s miniature peanut butter cups, unwrapped
Butter Cream frosting
– Mix food coloring into frosting to create an orange color
– Spoon frosting into piping bag. Use smallest round decorating tip, or cut a very small hole into the edge of the bag
– Place Fudge Stripe Cookies upside down, so chocolate side is facing up
– Pipe a small square on the front of the Reese’s cup. Flip it upside down and pipe a generous amount of frosting around the edges. Place the Reese’s cup (frosting side down) in the middle of the Fudge Stripe Cookie. Frosting should spillover, but touch up as needed.
Enjoy these delicious Pilgrim Hat Cookies as a Thanksgiving dessert or for a fun school snack!
