I saw these adorable witch hat cookies on Pinterest but the link just led back to a photograph. As far as I can tell, the photo I saw originated from Explore. Dream. Discover. but I couldn’t track down any specific instructional post.
We made these to go along with our chocolate pretzel bats for my daughter’s Halloween play date. I let the kids make them so they aren’t perfectly even but I still think they turned out cute!
- Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies (or other flat, round cookie that has at least one side covered in chocolate)
- food coloring
- Hershey Kisses
1. Mix the food coloring and frosting until it is the color you desire. (This is a great lesson in color mixing.)
2. Apply a big dab of frosting to the bottom of an unwrapped Kiss.
3. Place the Kiss on the center of the cookie and twist to spread the frosting around a little.
- Art: Experiment with color mixing with the food coloring. Make some hats with purple or green brims, too.
- Fashion / Culture: No one knows for sure where the witch hat originated. Find examples of other pointy hats throughout history and representations of witches.
