Cupcakes with Candy Witch Hats

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!

Ingredients

  • Cupcakes

  • Icing colored orange

  • York Peppermint Patties

  • Hershey Kisses – Special Dark

  • Candy melts – I used orange and purple

Directions

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!
