Melted Witches

A sweet gal by the name of Laura Manning shared this idea with me last week, and I became obsessed. Laura is a local gal and is also a student in the Sweet Treats class, so when we were mulling over some of the projects for the class in my home last week, she shared this one with me...First, line a cookie sheet with the Halloween Oreos. Dip a Bugle into melted chocolate, and stand it on top of the Oreo. Stick them in the frig to harden a few minutes. These are the hats.

Next, put some shredded coconut into a baggie with a few drops of food coloring and blend it all in so it turns yellow. This will be part of the witch's broom...
(Now, I was lucky enough to find some green colored chocolate at Michael's. It is sort of neon green--but you could use any color. In Laura's sample, she used white chocolate.)

Melt your colored chocolate and put a blob on the waxed paper. Put the hat into the melted chocolate.
Before the chocolate sets, place a pinch of the colored coconut into the chocolate, and a stick pretzel for the broomstick.
Thanks so much for sharing, Laura!! I'll be making these for my children's upcoming Halloween parties for sure...

This and many other ideas are available for download immediately at Get it Scrapped. The class will be ongoing through October, and I hope to see you there!

Have a great day everyone!
