Yes, today's candies are wonderfully weird witches and witch-ly accessories! We'll start with the witches themselves. How cute are these witch truffles?? Chocolate truffles form the head, and then they're outfitted with a kiss-and-cookie hat and decorated with luminous green skin, black hair, and even a protruding nose! If you've ever wanted to eat a witch's face--and really, who among us has not?--this is the perfect opportunity.
Maybe you're more interested in witch accessories than in witches themselves. I can respect that. Perhaps I could interest you in these chocolate-filled witch hats, then? Ice cream cones are filled with a chocolate truffle mixture, then set on cookies and dipped in chocolate. It's about five different desserts in one, and these babies look great when they're all lined up on a platter together.
Finally, I have an option for those with little children, little time, and/or little patience. Easy witch hats are so simple, they barely need a recipe. It's really more of an assembly project than a cooking project, which makes it a good choice for small helpers, or classroom projects. Simply stick kisses on a cookie, add a little ribbon, and you're good to go!
