My mom would always go all out for Halloween dinner when we were kids.

I remember mummy hot dogs, hot apple cider, and these witch hat cookies!

This recipe works because it’s:

  • Almost too easy to make. I’m all for no bake desserts and this one only takes a few steps.
  • Perfect for kids. Let kids go crazy with the frosting and sprinkles to put their own touch on these cookies.
  • Halloween festive! These are great for any spooky party.
  • As delicious as they are cute. You can’t go wrong with Hershey’s and Keebler cookies.

Step-by-Step Instructions

GENTLY push a Hershey kiss in the middle of the cookie on top of the icing.

FOR cookies with writing gel, carefully pipe a bow on one side of the kiss.

IF desired, carefully sprinkle Halloween confetti and jimmy sprinkles on top of the exposed frosting, carefully pressing the sprinkles so they stick. Once you’re done, tip the cookie to remove any extra sprinkles.

Recipe Tips and Substitutions

This recipe uses two chocolate ingredients that can melt quickly if you’re holding them in your hands for too long. Put the Kisses and fudge cookies in the fridge for 15 minutes before you assemble the hats so they won’t melt in your hands.

The best sprinkles for these cookies are the larger shapes. Nonpareils and sanding sugar are fun but difficult to press into the frosting.

If your bow starts running together, you can use a toothpick to carefully push the gel out of the center of the loops to define the shape again.

Fudge stripe cookies and Kisses aren’t the only options for these witch hats! Try some of these fun substitutions:

  • Fudge mint cookies
  • Oreos
  • Crinkle cookies
  • Hershey Hugs

These cookies are perfect to use up some leftover frosting! Simply color it a Halloween color, put it in a plastic bag, snip the tip off, and pipe it on the cookies.
