Cupcakes with Candy Witch Hats

Soo many Halloween ideas … too little time!  That is my dilemma right now.  I do have ideas for fall also … and will post them shortly.

This little project is a quick and easy one.  Great for kids … or adults … to make.  The witch hats could be used alone … but I really like them on top of cupcakes … edible decor!

You will need …

  • Cupcakes
  • Icing colored orange
  • York Peppermint Patties
  • Hershey Kisses – Special Dark
  • Candy melts – I used orange and purple

Set up a little assembly line to make the witch hats … it takes a while just to unwrap the mint patties and kisses …

Put a dab or dollop (very technical terms) of melted candy on the mint patty.  You can use a spoon … but a squeeze bottle would be a great option for kids …

Place the Kiss on the melted candy … a little will ooze out … creating a band.  Pop them in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to firm up the melted candy …

I used my favorite cupcake decorating tip … Wilton #1M … to frost the cupcakes.  Start on the outside rim and swirl your way to the center of the cupcake …

Put a hat on the cupcake … and you are done!

Do these fall in the “good for you” category?  They have dark chocolate … antioxidants … can we rationalize it?  If not, here is my find of the day …

I wish I could take credit for this quote … but I can’t … it came straight off a Denny’s menu!
