  • Red and green icing pens
  • Marshmallows
  • Dark cookies, e.g., OREO®
  • 2 oz of dark chocolate

1. Crafting Witchy Faces

Start by melting the dark chocolate. Using a toothpick, draw a face on the marshmallow to represent the witch.

2. Setting the Cookie Base

Separate the cookies from their cream filling. Mix powdered sugar with water (or alternatively with lime, lemon, or orange juice) until a thick paste forms. Apply this mixture to the bottom of the witch's face (the marshmallow) and affix the marshmallow onto the underside of the cookie. Pro tip: Use gloves to avoid sticky fingers!

3. Shaping the Witch's Hat

Knead together the marzipan and black food coloring until a smooth dough forms. If using fondant, ensure you knead it for about a minute to make it pliable. From this, shape small, pointed witch hats. Attach the hat to the cookie using the icing sugar paste. Press gently and allow it to dry.
