Rec: Witches Hat Cookies

I think that you could use any flat, round cookie (biscuit) for these witch hat treats. You could also use homemade icing instead of store bought. This recipe is so easy, and perfect for preparing with kids as it does not require any sharp knives or use of the oven. If your cookies aren't covered in chocolate just make a chocolate icing yourself instead. Once the icing is dry attach the Kiss hats and decorate with the orange icing. Aren't they so cute looking!

Witches Hat Cookies

2 Kisses milk chocolates, unwrapped

1 package (11 1/2 ounces) fudge-striped shortbread cookies (32)

1 tube (4.25 ounces) orange or red decorating icing


1.Attach 1 chocolate candy to chocolate bottom of each cookie, using decorating icing.

2. Pipe decorating icing around base of chocolate candy.

Here's another witch-hat recipe:

Mousse-filled Witch Hats

1-3/4 c. heavy whipping cream, divided
1 c. milk chocolate chips
4 squares (1 oz each) semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/2 tsp. shortening
1 package (4-3/4 oz) chocolate sugar ice cream cones
Halloween sprinkles
12 thin chocolate wafers (2-1/4" in diameter)

For mousse, in a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup cream to a boil; remove from the heat. Stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; cool to room temp, stirring occasionally.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the remaining cream until stiff peaks form; fold into the chocolate mixture. Cover and refrigerate.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt semi-sweet chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip pointed tips of ice cream cones a third of the way into the melted chocolate; roll in sprinkles. Refrigerate until set. Just before serving, spoon mousse into cones. Top each with a chocolate wafer. Invert onto a serving platter.

Yield: 1 dozen hats.
