Double Double, Toil and Trouble

Fire burn and cauldron bubble! Halloween is so fun! I love everything about it. And just how cute are these witch treats? Easy peasy to make, taste great and no baking required! I had a witch themed night in with some friends, made sangria and watched Hocus Pocus. These brooms and witch hats were perfect. I’m going to be doing a ton of baking with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up so I thought I’d do something simple without having to turn my oven on. Here is what you do…

For the brooms, all you need are pretzel sticks and mini Reese’s cups. Stick the pretzels in and voila! Done.

The witch hats are more time consuming, depending on how much you actually want to do. Below is everything I used and what I did.

What you will need:

Hershey Kisses
Frosting (make your own or I just used Pillsbury funfetti frosting in purple)
Round chocolate cookies (I used Target brand Fudge Mint Cookies)
White chocolate, melted

First, I made the buckles out of white chocolate. Place some wax paper on a cookie sheet. Melt about 1 ounce of white chocolate in the microwave. Put melted chocolate in a ziplock bag and cut a small hole in the corner. Draw small buckles (squares) on the wax paper. White chocolate is very hard to work with so do the best you can. Place cookie sheet in the refrigerator or freezer to harden the chocolate.

Get all other ingredients out. Unwrap however many Hershey Kisses you are going to use and lay out the same amount of chocolate cookies. With a knife, put a small amount of the frosting on the bottom of a Kiss (about 1/4 teaspoon). Push Kiss down on a cookie so the frosting starts to come out of the sides. Do this with the rest of the cookies and Kisses.

Once the white chocolate has hardened, place a buckle on each cookie. Make sure it sticks into the frosting. Store cookies in refrigerator until ready to serve! Tedious, but worth it 🙂 Enjoy and Happy Halloween!
