Graduation Party Food Ideas

Easy Ideas for your Graduation Party Menu

These graduation party food ideas are easy and inexpensive and can add some color and festivity to your graduation party menu.  Looking for some great graduation menu ideas? Here are some of our family favorites. We love to do dessert buffets in addition to the traditional graduation cake. These graduation party desserts are a perfect addition. Best of all you can add some color to your dessert table by making them in the school colors.. use the high school or college colors and you have themed to your desserts to reflect the graduate!

Add some fruit to your graduation party menu with chocolate dipping. These are strawberries I made for our 4th of July party.. so easy and you can adapt the colors. I used a combination of the colored chocolate candy molding disks and then dipping in colored sugar. Both of these are available in a rainbow of colors! You can see some tips for making chocolate dipped fruits as well as using the same idea and making chocolate covered pretzels as a fun Graduation party food.

Look at these adorable no-bake candy desserts - a really creative graduation party food idea. Simply use Reese's peanut butter cups, Andes thin mints, an M&M and some cake decorating icing. Color the tassels to your school colors!If you are not a peanut butter lover, use the smallest mini cupcake tins and bake chocolate cupcakes. Turn them over and use chocolate frosting to attach the mint square. Another idea is to make these and place these on top of cupcakes as a topper! One last idea... insert lollipop sticks ( one tip- dip the lollipop stick in a bit of frosting or melted chocolate before inserting into the Reese's cup) and you have Grad Cap POPs!  We thank Taste of Home for the recipe for this Easy Graduation Party Dessert.
