If you’d like to make a treat for a graduate, how about brownie mortarboards*?
These, from Sugar Bowl Bakery in Hayward, California, show you how to do it.
1. MAKE mini round brownies in a baba pan or cut circles with a cookie cutter from a regular pan of brownies.
2. FIND a rectangular cookie covered in chocolate. We used these, but you can bake your own shortbread or sugar cookies and dip them.
3. DECORATE with a jelly bean and a piece of licorice whip. Use a dab of chocolate frosting to afix the garnish to the cookie.
