DLTK's Crafts for Kids

Top Hat Cookies

It was Hat Day at preschool and it just happened to be Kaitlyn's turn to bring a snack so we thought we would get creative and make a cookie shaped like a top hat.  It turned out to be a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed them.

Makes about 12 cookies.


  • 1 box of brownie mix (or your own recipe)
  • chocolate sugar cookies (separate recipe)
  • chocolate frosting
  • strawberry or cherry rolled fruit snack


  • Bake brownie according to package directions and let cool.
  • Mix sugar cookie dough and roll it flat.  Cut out circular cookies about 3 inches in diameter.  (We used a large drinking glass to cut them out.)
  • Bake the sugar cookies according to the recipe.  They should end up slightly larger.
  • Cut round pieces of brownie smaller than the sugar cookies.  We used a slightly smaller glass than we did for the cookies.
  • Frost one side of the brownie and then stick it to the top of a sugar cookie.
  • Cut the rolled fruit snack into long narrow strips and wrap it around the bottom of the brownie to hide the frosting.
