Graduation Party Caps

1 package fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size)
48 fudge graham cookies or graham cracker halves
1 cup chocolate frosting
48 pieces red shoestring licorice
48 Skittles bite-size candies

Prepare brownie batter according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Fill paper-lined miniature muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350 for 21-24 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely (remove paper liners while cupcakes are still warm).

Slice 1/8-in. from the top of each cupcake to level. Invert cupcakes; attach a cookie to each with a small amount of frosting. For tassel, place a licorice piece and a candy on top of each cookie, attaching with frosting. Let stand until set.

Yield: 4 dozen.
