Here's what you need to get:
1 bag of miniature peanut butter cups
1 package fudge striped cookies or something similar like that
food coloring red, yellow
Unwrap the candy. Place the cookies flat side up. Place a dab of frosting in the middle of the candy then place the peanut butter cup on top of the cookie. Pipe yellow frosting around the rim of the hat and decorate with a little orange rectangle.
2 to 3 cups powdered sugar
shortening like Crisco
food colorings red and yellow
In a small bowl add about 2 cups of powdered sugar. Use a few yellow food coloring drops. A few teaspoons of water and 1 tablespoon Crisco. Mix until smooth and still thick. Add more powdered sugar if it's runny. Needs to be thick and hold together in form
In another bowl make the same recipe above.
For the orange mix 1 drop of red with 3 drops yellow. Follow the same procedure.
Place inside a lunch size plastic baggie a writing tip to the end where it points. Puncture with a tooth pick to the center of the writing tube. Add frosting to the baggie. Proceed with decorating the cookie hats.
