How to Make Graduation Chocolate Pops

Things You'll Need

  • Milk chocolate squares
  • Miniature peanut butter cups
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Twisted licorice candy
  • 8-inch lollipop sticks
  • Edible adhesive
  • Small piece of floral foam

Create an Assembly Line

Gather your ingredients and tools and create an assembly line on a countertop or table. This way you will have easy access to the ingredients.

Cut Licorice Strings

When you have your shortened pieces, cut them horizontally within the grooves to make thin strings. You will need one string per pop. When you have your strings, set aside until ready to assemble.

Prepare the Square Top of the Hat

Unwrap one chocolate square and lay it on a flat surface. Add a line of edible adhesive going from the center of the square towards the bottom right corner.

Add the Top Button

Place a mini chocolate chip in the center of the square, where the line of edible adhesive begins. Hold the chocolate chip in place, putting just enough pressure to ensure adhesion.

Refrigerate and Continue

Put the assembled chocolate "cap" in the refrigerator and repeat steps 3 through 5 until you have enough caps for your guests.

Edible Adhesive

Add a drop of edible adhesive on the top of the peanut butter cup and spread it across the surface. Insert stick into a piece of floral foam.

Attach the Flat Top

 Transfer the finished pop to the fridge and repeat until you have the desired number of pops. The pops are ready once the edible adhesive has hardened.
