These no-bake Halloween witch hat treats are so easy and fun to make and to eat!Squee! Halloween is coming soon! Time to make some spooky treats!
I love Halloween, and all the fun that comes along with it. Actually, I love the whole season of autumn in general. I love the changing leaves, the chill in the air, Sunday football, and pumpkin spice everything, but the main reason why I love this time of year is that there are lots of opportunities to spend time with family and friends.
I have so many memories of gathering in the kitchen to carve pumpkins, bake cookies, or cook up big pots of chili. The kitchen is the heart of the house and the setting for a myriad of fun activities!
Making festive goodies is probably my favorite activity, since we not only get to spend time together making them, but then we also have a fun treat to enjoy for a few days (yum). And there are so many creative things you can make with a Halloween theme. I like to focus on simple but delightful recipes, so that we can enjoy the process and not get too caught up in the details. This recipe for Witch Hat Cookies is definitely easy (no baking involved!), and so much fun to make with the kids!
I would like to thank Dixie Crystals for sponsoring these cookies. I was surprised to learn that Dixie Crystals has been in the sugar business since 1917. Wow, that’s a long time! They obviously know what they are doing. They understand that the most important thing is family, and that food and family together form the basis of traditions that bring us all closer together. Dixie Crystals not only produces products to help us cook delicious food, but they also provide ideas, recipes, baking videos, vintage cookbooks, and more on their website DixieCrystals.com that help to make family time even more special. They even have a Kids In The Kitchen page with crafts, printables, edible creations, activity sheets, and science projects!
- 1 (12 ounce) package semi-sweet morsels
- 24 round, flat cookies or buttery crackers (I used Ritz crackers)
- 1 and ½ cups Dixie Crystals powdered sugar, divided
- 1 and ½ tablespoons water, divided
- Orange, green, and purple food coloring (or use classic colors and mix to get the desired color)
- 24 chocolate kisses, unwrapped
- Place the semi-sweet morsels in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 50% power for 40 seconds, then stir, then microwave on 50% for 20 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the morsels are completely melted.
- Place a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet or other flat tray. Dip each round cookie or cracker in the chocolate, scrape off the excess, and place on the wax paper. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
- Add ½ cup Dixie Crystals powdered sugar and ½ tablespoon water in each of 3 small bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring in each to create the orange, green, and purple colors. Mix well until the icing is stiff. Add more food coloring, a drop or two at a time, until the colors are vibrant enough for you. If the icing is too stiff, add a little water. If it is too runny, add a little more sugar.
- Remove the chocolate covered rounds from the refrigerator. Drop a dollop of icing (about ¼ teaspoon) to the center of each, then press down with a chocolate kiss so that the excess icing forms a ring around the bottom.
- Allow the icing to set for 15-20 minutes before serving.
To sweeten the season even more, Dixie Crystals is giving away a Kitchen Aid mixer. Head over to the Dixie Crystals Scary Scramble contest page to enter!
