Total Yield: 30-36 Witch Hat cookies
Carb Content: 19g per cookie (8g per GF cookie)


  • one 550g box Dad's Chocolatey Coated Oatmeal cookies

OR FOR GLUTEN-FREE: one 220g box of Kinnickkinnick K-Toos Chocolate Sandwich Cream cookies


  • two 120g tubes Cake Mate Decorating Icing, in Halloween colours
  • one 200g bag Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses



Place 1 cookie upside-down on your work surface.

If you're using K-Toos to make the GF version, twist the 2 chocolate halves apart, scrape off the icing from both, and use each cookie-half as the base of a hat.


Squeeze 1 tsp (6g) of icing onto the middle of the bottom of the cookie, keeping the tip of the tube close to the cookie so that the icing spreads out evenly in a circle.


Place 1 Hershey's Kiss in the middle of the icing.


Repeat these 3 simple steps for the rest of the cookies and... you're done!
