A graduation should be one thing above all else: fun! And nothing's more fun—both for the hostess and the guests—than pulling off a fantastically themed shindig. But it doesn't have to be all hard work and frustration to pull it off. All it takes is a touch of creativity. One great place to add some themed pizzazz—snacks. So here are five fun graduation party snacks to dazzle your guests.
Themed Candy Pails
This one is simple. All it takes is some candy, pails and a few pithy labels. Stick to the theme by labeling the pales things such as "Honor Roll" (rolled candy or Tootsie Rolls), "Book Worm" (gummy worms), "Student Loans" (100 Grand bars) or "Class Rings" (Ring Pops).
Make this idea even bigger with a cookie bar themed as "One Smart Cookie." Simply lay out trays of cookies with all of the possible toppings such as icing, M&Ms, sprinkles, etc. They'll be delicious—plus, give your guests a fun activity for your party. Add a little ice cream for an extra treat!
The Hostess Cap
Flip a Hostess cupcake upside down and top with a fudge cookie, a smidgen of icing and a tassel. You can also do a smaller version using Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey's Chocolate Bars. A delicious treat for your celebrating guests!
Pick up some Pepperidge Farm Pirouette cookies. Simply wrap and tie a bow with ribbon. Quick and easy diploma cookies! If you're super creative, make the bows yourself with icing. Yum!
Honor Roll Dipped-Pretzels
Melt white chocolate candy melts and dip in pretzel rods. Then, top with classy, shimmering sprinkles that fit your theme. You can also use different colors of candy melts if you'd like to go for a school theme.
