Easy Witch Hat Cookies
These just might be the easiest Halloween treats that you can make for a party. Only requiring four ingredients, our Witch Hat Cookies are better than most. Why? We ditch the store-bought cookie coated in chocolate and topped with even more chocolate for a treat made with Original Ritz Crackers. That swap gives the whole cookie a buttery and salty base with which the semisweet chocolate can intermingle.While you could easily decorate these cookies with icings and sprinkles to give them more color and texture, we think a case can easily be made for the effectiveness of this cookie’s simplicity—in addition to looking like a witch’s hat, it also has a spookiness that can be attributed to its monochromatic color and smooth texture. Many Halloween treats are packed with orange and black decorations, but these cookies boast a simple shiny brown, hiding a crunchy layer of flaky cracker underneath all of the chocolate. An easy variation to this recipe is to sandwich two crackers together with a thin layer of peanut butter before coating it in chocolate. However you choose to prepare the cracker, rest assured that the visual appeal of this simple cookie will go a long way in determining how many are carried away by curious guests.
