There is not a lot in the way of treat ideas for kids for Presidents Day.

I’ve looked.

I stumbled across this idea of Abe Lincoln’s Hat in a few places during my extensive random, last minute search yesterday.  None with pictures, though.

Here’s my rendition….

Abe Lincoln Hat Treats:


Keebler Fudge Stripes
Rolo Candy
Brown Icing


1. Turn each cookie upside down so the solid chocolate side is facing up.

2. Put brown icing on bottom of a Rolo candy and “stick” to middle of cookie.  I used Oreo decorating icing since I had it on hand, but in hindsight wished I used a darker brown icing.

3. Repeat to stack Rolo candy 2 high on each cookie.

Voila!  Abe Lincoln Hat Treats!!
