15 Cookies

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 15 mother's fudge-striped shortbread cookies
  • 15 reese's miniature peanut butter cups
  • 15 jelly beans or 15 chocolate-covered raisins
  • 2 pieces regular fruit leather
  • 1 (1 ounce) package brown frosting


  1. Cut the Fruit Roll Ups into thin slices with a knife- they will be the brim of the hat.
  2. Get a Shortbread Cookie and put it upside down, so the plain chocolate side is up.
  3. Take the Peanut Butter Cups out of their wrappers.
  4. Pick up one strip of the Fruit Roll Up, and put around the Peanut Butter Cup on the fatter end.
  5. Use your frosting to secure a Raisin, or Jelly Bean on the Fruit Roll Up part, to act as a buckle on the hat.
  6. Next, with your frosting, attach the whole Peanut Butter Cup on top of the cookie, but in the middle of the cookie.
  7. Arrange on a festive platter!
