One of the proudest moments of every parent’s life happens at their children’s graduation. Whether they are finishing grade school, high school, or college, your child’s graduation is a milestone that is worth celebrating.
Speaking of celebrations, throwing them a cool graduation party is a good way to cap off their special day. What’s the best way to make the party memorable for them, though? By serving graduation-themed food, of course! If you’re looking for some ideas, here are a few easy-to-make options.
Cupcakes are all the rage these days — and lucky for you, graduation-themed cupcake wrappers are easily available from retailers like Simply Wrappers. So, you don’t have to think much about decorating your dessert. Top off this celebratory treat with a simple graduation message for your child using a tag and you’re all set!
Graduation Caps Pretzels
Commemorate your child’s graduation day by serving homemade pretzels with a literal twist. Graduation caps pretzels are easy and fun graduation party snacks that everyone will enjoy. Simply bake pretzels using pizza dough, baking soda, water, and pretzel salt. Instead of their classic shape, though, twist it to look like a graduation cap. Your guests will enjoy munching on the salty-sweet treat.
Ham-and-Cheese Pinwheel Diplomas
Ham and cheese pinwheels are easy appetizers that double as delicious snacks! You’ll need deli-sliced ham, American cheese, large tortillas, softened cream cheese, mayonnaise, dill weed, garlic powder, and onion powder. Roll the ingredients up on the tortilla as you make a regular pinwheel, but don’t cut up the roll after. Instead, tie a six-inch long colored ribbon around the middle of the rolled up tortilla to make it resemble a diploma.
Graduation Caps Peanut Butter and Chocolate Push Pops
Another treat for your child’s guests, peanut butter and chocolate push pops are an uncomplicated dessert you can give out. Layer these two classic favorites, then top it off with a graduation cap made out of a Reese’s peanut butter cup and a chocolate square. Finish the snack with a red licorice and voila! You have a quirky graduation-themed party food.
