Whether you are celebrating high school, college, or Kindergarten graduations soon, these fun graduation treats will make any age graduate feel extra special. We will be celebrating 1st, 6th and 8th grade graduations so I will have an excuse to make them as well! (As an added bonus, they are no-bake treats!)
Time for this mommy to grab the Kleenex. My baby is graduating Kindergarten! I know that when my oldest graduates high school, I will need an entire box. Time is just flying by much too fast. Of course, I say that all the time (but it’s true!). I was also emotional last year when my baby graduated preschool but I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he is the baby and this will be the last of the “firsts”, if that makes sense. Thankfully/joyfully, I have a in a few months and I just can’t wait *insert big cheesy grin*.
Not only is my son graduating Kindergarten, but my middle child is ‘graduating’ to middle school. So, in honor of their accomplishments, I wanted a special dessert. Because I like to celebrate every special occasion with dessert. (Which is why I have to spend a lot of time at the gym.)
Last year I made these Brownie Graduation Hats…
So…I decided to make Oreo Truffles, with the same concept of the brownie graduation hats, with the chocolate covered graham cookies as the top of the ‘hat’. I decided to use melted white chocolate for the tassels.
I thought they turned out pretty delicious. I mean cute. You can serve them on a stick, like cake pops…great for little hands –
Or you can serve them on a platter –
If you can find candy in the graduate’s school colors, it makes a cute presentation I think. You could also place them on top of cupcakes!
The best part, these are very easy to make. The truffle itself is only 2 ingredients, and I throw everything into a food processor and blend it up, then dip in chocolate. Now that I’ve discovered , it’s so much easier to make chocolate covered treats, making things like this much more fun for the kids and I.
Graduation Oreo Truffles
8 oz chocolate, melted (I used )
1/2 package of chocolate covered graham cookies
white chocolate for decorating (optional) I used
Add package of Oreos to bowl of food processor. Pulse a few times to chop into pieces.
Add cream cheese to processor. Blend Oreos and cream cheese until well blended.
Mixture will be thick (like a cookie dough).
Roll into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and place on waxed paper lined cookie sheet.
Chill in freezer while preparing chocolate.
Melt chocolate per directions (microwave or double broiler method).
Dip chilled oreo truffles into melted chocolate. Place on wax paper. Top with chocolate covered graham cookie. Allow chocolate to set.
Decorate tops with white chocolate drizzle or as desired.
Having these little gems will make Kindergarten graduation a little easier 🙂
Chocoley Chocolate sent me samples to try. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.

- Mix brownies according to directions on package (or try this egg free, lower fat version!).
- Bake brownies in a mini muffin pan until done (they will not take as long to bake as directed on package since they are minis. Do I really need to point that out? probably not)
- Once cool, carefully cut rounded tops off brownies so they will sit flat (if needed)
- Flip brownies over, so the widest side is down.
- Use some melted chocolate to attach a graham cookie to the now upside down brownie.
- Use more melted chocolate to attach candy tassels to top of cookie, and the mini M candy on top of tassel.
