My college roommate, Erica, posted this a few days ago and I thought they were so cute:
Without reading the description they looked complicated and I didn't even re-pin them, thinking I couldn't tackle them. Then I took a second look and noticed the base is just a fudge stripe cookie! That I can handle :)
To assemble these adorable witch hat cookies, all you need is a package of fudge stripe cookies, a bag of Hershey's kisses, and some orange icing.
Since you don't need a lot of icing, rather than making a batch of buttercream I picked up a small tube of orange decorating icing from the baking aisle at the grocery store. Wilton makes tips that can be screwed on top of the icing tube for easy piping - so convenient!
Pardon the extremely blurry picture (the background is in focus -hahahahaha), but I just squeezed some icing onto the bottom of the Hershey's kiss...
...and plop it down onto the chocolate side of the cookie. Plop is a technical term.
Repeat for however many cookies you need - this would be a great snack or dessert at a Halloween party! It just takes a few minutes to prepare many cookies and they are so good!
What a fun idea...and whatever icing you don't use can be stored in the tube. Just take off the piping tip and put the tube's lid back on to seal it up...
I was thinking you could change the colors of the icing, but there are limited options I guess...it's not like cupcakes where you can make them match any theme or holiday. With witch hats you're pretty limited - but maybe if you're having a Wicked-themed party you could change the icing to green? The orange reminds me of The Worst Witch :) LOVED that movie when I was little - we taped it and I wore that VHS out!
