Here is a quick, easy Halloween witch hat cookie that requires little artistic ability, which means it’s great for me and for children. It’s a twist on the classic peanut butter cookies with a kiss, but we made them all chocolate to look like witch hats.
Make the chocolate cookie by combining:
- 1 devil’s food cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 c oil
- 1 t vanilla
Roll this into small balls. I made them about half the size I make my normal drop cookies.
Bake them at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
When they come out, top them with a Hershey’s kiss, and move them to a cooling rack. If you use plain kisses, you can leave them to cool on the counter. Because I used caramel filled kisses (because why wouldn’t I when they are an option?), I put them in the fridge to set a bit. I had a few witch hats from the first batch that looked a bit like the Wicked Witch of the West melting.
That’s it! I initially planned to pipe a green ribbon around the hat, but I became far too lazy. But if you are more motivated than I was, feel free to decorate your hats with some cookie icing.
