Tuesday Treats & Titles (on a Thursday): Witches’ Hats

So…uhm…This is sort of a Throwback Thursday post, rather than Thursday Thoughts because…uhm…due to circumstances and on account of because, I didn’t post on Tuesday. So I’m throwing today’s blog back two whole days! So you’re getting treats and titles today. Otherwise, I have to wait an entire year so…yeah. Anyway, to help celebrate the season and all the witches out there, enjoy this quite and easy treat.

PREP TIME: 30 minutes
COOL TIME: 30 minutes

Cover homemade or stove-bought cookies in melted HERSHEY’S Chocolate Chips and top them with HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolates to make decorative witch hats. They’re the spooky snack that kids will love this Halloween.

INGREDIENTS
24 HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Milk Chocolates
24 fudge bottomed striped cookies
1 cup HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Chips
Decorating icing or gel in tube (optional)
Chocolate sprinkles (optional)

EQUIPMENT NEEDED 
Wax Paper
Tray or Cookie Sheet
Microwave-Safe Bowl
Microwave
Measuring Cup

DIRECTIONS
1 – Remove wrappers from chocolates. Place cookies with chocolate-coated bottom facing up on wax paper covered tray or cookie sheet.

2 – Place milk chocolate chips in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at medium (50%) 1 minute; stir. If necessary, microwave at medium an additional 15 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chips are melted and smooth when stirred. Dip bottom of chocolate kiss into melted chocolate and place in center of cookie. Repeat for all the cookies. Allow chocolate to firm before continuing.

3 – Pipe icing or gel around base of Hersey’s Kiss. Use chocolate sprinkles to make square buckle for hat, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tip
1 – Bottoms of homemade or store-bought cookies can be coated in melted chocolate if fudge bottomed cookies aren’t available.

I’m diverging from my usual source today because this recipe comes straight from the chocolate folks themselves! Head over to HERSHEY’S to get all the details on this fun Halloween goodie. As soon as I saw the pic, I knew I had to grab the recipe to help celebrate SEASON OF THE WITCH’s 8th birthday. Eight years ago yesterday, this book went live and Sade and Sinjen’s love affair began. Of course, Sade made her debut in THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC, but she didn’t connect with her favorite vampire until this book. SEASON OF THE WITCH answers that age-old question: Can a dedicated FBI agent find true love with her undead suspect in a series of brutal murders? Just click on the pics or the title to grab your copy of either book from Books2Read, which hooks you up with your favorite on-line bookseller. Happy reading and Happy Halloween!

  1. Yeah, like I said on FB, I wondered what was going on over there this morning… with a Tuesday post on Thursday… and wondered if perhaps you were like me and couldn’t tell what day it was. LOL

    Those look fun and yummy. If I still had a kid at home, and she was still a kid, I’d probably make those to amuse her. Alas, I’m old and she’s not here… or a kid anymore. And probably not as easily amused as she used to be.

    I LOVE these books so much. Everyone should be reading them. =o)

      I thought they were cute too! And yeah, same-same on the Kid. Only is our Halloween witch but she’s not so little anymore and doesn’t really need the cookies and while I could make them for Stormy, he doesn’t really need the sugar either. LOL I miss the old days. 😉
