Do you know I first celebrated Thanksgiving in 1995 while attending University at St Andrews? Living in halls filled with International students, we were invited to celebrate it together and had an incredible meal that night! Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday in the US and this year falls on Thursday 22nd November.

In 1621, Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast, now considered one of the earliest Thanksgiving celebrations. Over two centuries, individual colonies and states celebrated days of thanksgiving before in 1863 President Abraham Lincoln issued an executive order proclaiming a national Thanksgiving Day to be observed every November.

Today we have an enjoyable craft to commemorate Thanksgiving – Pilgrim Hat Cookies are both easy and delicious to create! Let the celebration of this feast day commence!

Ingredients For This Recipe
Fudge Stripe Cookies, Large Marshmallows, Milk Chocolate Morsels or Candy Coating.

Unwrap Starburst Minis
How to Create Pilgrim’s Hat Cookies Begin by prepping a baking sheet with waxed or parchment paper.

Melt chocolate morsels of candy coating according to package directions, taking special care not to overheat it. When overheated, candy coating becomes too thick. You may add two teaspoons of vegetable shortening as an aid in thinning the candy; any other liquids could lead to seizing and hardening of the candy coating.

Use a toothpick to carefully dip a marshmallow into the melted chocolate and tap against the bowl to remove excess chocolate.

Pull the toothpick through the center of the cookie quickly until the marshmallow rests on it.

Refrigerating them could cause softening of the cookies, so try storing at room temperature instead.
