  • vanilla frosting
  • orange food coloring
  • fudge-striped cookies
  • Resse's bite-sized peanut butter cups unwrapped
  • mini M&Ms
  • frosted cupcakes optional


  • Add several drops of orange food coloring to your vanilla frosting and mix well until you have your desired color.
  • Turn your cookies with the solid fudge side placing up, then place a heaping spoonful of orange frosting in the center of your cookie.
  • Stick your peanut butter cup on top of the frosting, with the smaller side facing up. Push down gently so the orange frosting forms a ring around the peanut butter cup.
  • Put an M&M candy into the orange frosting so it rests against the peanut butter cup.
  • And you're done! You can add a pilgrim hat cookie to the top of a frosted cupcake, but these cookies do look great on their own!
