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.

24 fudge bottomed striped cookies
1 cup HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Chips

Chocolate sprinkles (optional)
Tray or Cookie Sheet
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.

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!
