    With Halloween just a few days away, it’s the perfect time to get into the spirit and try out your baking and crafting skills. Here’s a few recipes and decor ideas help you start feeling spooky.

Recipes :

Witch Hat Cookies

Ingredients:

Hershey Kisses

Chocolate chips

White vanilla frosting

Food coloring

Sugar cookies (pre-made, or home-made)

Directions:

  1. Place the semi-sweet chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, melt in 30 second intervals, stirring in between, until completely melted.
  2. Place wax paper on a cookie sheet and dip each cookie into the melted chocolate. Clean off the edges of the chocolate covered cookies and place onto the wax paper. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
  3. Depending on the amount of colors you desire, divide the frosting into bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl and stir in the color until the vibrancy is as desired.
  4. Remove the chocolate covered cookies from the refrigerator. Add a dollop of icing to the center of the cookie and press down Hershey kiss on the icing to form a colored ring around the bottom.
  5. Allow the icing to set, and enjoy!  (inspired by DizzyBusyandHungry.com)
