Truth be told, I don’t do much for Halloween. We do truck or treat, and the girls help me hand out goodies to people that drop by the house. Besides that, Halloween at our house is pretty low key. Although, with this witches’ hat, I am tempted to do more. Especially since we have a birthday in October. This could be an excuse for a Halloween themed birthday party. It’s a genius way to turn those Oreo cookies into spooky treats.

Witches’ Hats – Halloween Dessert Recipes
How to Make the Wicked Witch Cookies Hats
- Pull apart 6 Oreo cookies and remove the filling. Cut each chocolate wafer in half and set aside.
- In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the black candy melts for 45 seconds. Remove from the microwave oven. Stir until smooth and melted.
- Dip a chocolate wafer into the melted black chocolate and cover completely. Place on the wax lined baking sheet. Dip a bugle chip into the melted clack candy, covering entirely, and place on top of the chocolate covered wafer. Allow to “set” for 30 minutes. Repeat this step until all 12 witch hats are assembled. Set aside any remaining melted black chocolate for later use.
How to Decorate the Oreo Wicked Witch Cookies
- Gently pop out the Oreos from their molds and place on the wax lined baking sheet.
- Cut the licorice wheels into 2-inch strips. You will need 48 total.
- Using a toothpick, dab a small amount of melted black chocolate (you may have to reheat it in the microwave if it has hardened) at the upper corners of each Oreo cookie. Press, the top of 2 licorice, strips into the chocolate on the upper left side and hold for a few seconds. Do the same on the right side. Repeat this step until all of the Oreos have 2 strands of “hair” on each side of the witches head.
- Pipe hair across each forehead with the black sparkle gel. You can make some curly and some straight.
- Dab a small amount of the black sparkle gel on the back of each candy eye and place two on each face.
- Dab a tiny amount of black sparkle gel on the side of each sunflower seed and place on each cookie for the nose.
- With the red sparkle gel, pipe a smile on each cookie.
