Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and cauldron bubble…

While my days of trick-or-treating are long gone, my love for Halloween has not subsided in the least. Especially when it comes to the treats. Halloween is the perfect time to let your creativity flow. Whether it’s through an imaginative costume, a crafty pumpkin or even a festive food, this spooky season is all about ingenuity. In the spirit of All Hallow’s Eve, I’m sharing a twisted treat that’s as speedy as it is wickedly sweet. (No cook time required!) Ladies, I present to you: Witch Hat Delights.

Take heed. This is what you will need…

6267671194:Yahoo:photo

  • 1 box (12 cones; pointy tip) ice cream cones
  • 12 thin, round chocolate cookies of your choice (I used fudge strip cookies.)
  • 12 Hershey Kisses
  • 1 bottle of Smucker’s Magic Shell topping (or quick dry chocolate of your choice)
  • 2 ½ cups chocolate frosting (I bought the premade tub of frosting or make your own using this recipe.)
  • 1 cup orange frosting (The premade orange frosting tubes work well.)
  • 2 plastic sandwich baggies (to use for frosting)
  • scissors
  • serrated knife
  • 1 jar of marshmallow fluff
  • Optional: M&Ms

Prep Steps

  • On a cookie sheet, lay out 12 cookies (if you are using the fudge strip cookies, place the stripped side down).
  • Scoop some frosting into a sandwich baggy and seal. Snip a small corner off the baggy. Squeeze the baggy to pipe the frosting out. Do a separate baggy for the chocolate and the orange frosting.

Construct at your own risk. Here’s how…

1. Unwrap 12 Hershey Kisses. Set aside.
2. Place a glob of chocolate frosting on the bottom a Kiss.
3. Press Kiss into place over the center of the cookie. The frosting will be acting like the glue to keep these two pieces together.
4. Cut the cones in half, about two inches from the base. Use a serrated knife and gently saw through the cone. Be careful not to apply any pressure or else the cone will crack.

5. Fill the inside of the cone about ¼ full with frosting.
6. Optional: Drop in a few M&Ms for an added surprise!
7. Fill ½ of the remaining space in the cone will marshmallow fluff.

8. Coat each cone with Magic Shell topping and let dry for 2 minutes.
9. Trace the rim of the cone with chocolate frosting.
10. Place the chocolate-rimmed cone onto the cookie, directly over the Kiss and press into place. See the witch hat yet?
11. Using the orange frosting, trace the base of the cone. Add additional frosting decoration as you see fit! I, of course, added bows… Enjoy!

These wickedly delicious treats are quick and easy to make. Plus they are always a hit at Halloween parties. Just be sure to keep them refrigerated until you are ready to serve them.

Try them out, snap a photograph and let me know how you like them!
