The Perfect Halloween Dessert
I’m sure you’ve all seen the cute cookie witch hats before, right? My mom used to make these years ago, so I know they aren’t anything new – but today I wanted to show you how cute they look as toppers for some cupcakes.
I am always on the hunt for easy baking ideas that my kids can help with, and these cupcakes are hard to mess up. We made these cupcakes last Halloween and my kids absolutely LOVED helping! They are simple to assemble and they sure look adorable… don’t you agree?
These witch hat cupcakes make the perfect treat for a class Halloween party- especially if your school has a “no homemade treats” policy like my daughter’s preschool has. There is nothing homemade about these – so take the ingredients out of their packaging and let the kids start decorating some darling witch hat cupcakes!
How to Make Witch Hat Cupcakes
Prep – I always just purchase cupcakes from the store when I make these to save on time. However, you can always make homemade cupcakes as well. You’ll also need a package of striped chocolate shortbread cookies as well as a package of Hershey’s kisses. If you can’t find purple frosting, just add some purple food coloring to your frosting and give it a good mix.
Assemble – Start by placing the shortbread cooking down so the chocolate side is facing up. Next, you’ll add a dab of frosting to the center of the cookie and then press the unwrapped Hershey’s kiss on top of it. Once the witch hat has been assembled, place it on top of the cupcake.
