This was before I blogged, so sorry there are no step-by-step photos, only this one!! It's really easy though...
round cookies (I just bought some cheap ones at Walmart--I wanted cookies that looked brownish)
colorful, round sprinkles
Unwrap a few caramels and heat in microwave for 12 seconds. Shape half or whole caramel (depending how big you want it) like the top of the hat. Spread frosting around edges of caramel and cookie, sprinkle on the colors or roll the edges in some sprinkles.
Also, check out this Queso Dip for your other Cinco de Mayo needs.
