Tips and Hacks for Decorating Witch Hat Cookies

To make the process of decorating these cookies even simpler, here are a few tips and hacks to follow:

  • Before beginning to decorate, get all of your ingredients and lay them out. Melt all of the melting chocolate so that everything will be ready to dip.
  • If your chocolate is solidifying while you are decorating, you can reheat the chocolate or keep it in a bowl of warm water.
  • For very clean-looking cookies, you could let them dry on a cooling rack. This will allow the excess chocolate to drip away. Just keep in mind that this is a messier method of drying these spooky cookies.
  • If you are decorating with small children, you can cover your kitchen counter with parchment paper. This will help to catch any messy drips of chocolate from eager little hands!

Recipe Variations of Witch Hat Cookies to Try

If these scream-worthy cookies just aren’t to your taste, you can try to use a different kind of cookie for the base.

You could use any kind of cookie that you prefer, such as sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, gluten-free cookies, and more. Any of these cookies can be easily transformed into these ghoulish witch hat cookies!

You could also give these cookies a transformation by using a different kind of Hershey kiss chocolate. There are all kinds of fun flavors to choose from at the store and you could even use some seasonal Halloween chocolate!

The colors of the melting chocolate can also be changed if you want to give your witches different colored hats. There are all kinds of ghostly colors that you could use instead.
