Halloween witches’ hats

You will need:
1 packet of Griffin’s Cookie Bear Stripes biscuits (or similar)
1 packet of Hershey’s Kisses (caramel flavoured)
Orange icing

To make a basic icing:

This is sufficient to cover 1 dozen biscuits. Try green icing or a wickedly black one for a different look.

1/3 cup icing (confectioner’s) sugar
1 teaspoon softened butter or margarine
1 teaspoon water or milk
Orange food colouring (we used yellow and red to make orange)

To make icing:

1. Combine butter and icing (confectioner’s) sugar in a small bowl.

2. Add half a teaspoon of water (or milk), stirring, then slowly add the rest of the water until you achieve the desired consistency.

3. Add a small amount of food colouring. We combined yellow and red food colouring in a cup, then used a teaspoon to add a small amount to the icing until we were happy with the result.

Putting it all together:

1. Snip off one corner of a zip lock or other plastic bag and insert a piping nozzle (with small round tip) into it. Or use a conventional piping bag.

2. Place icing inside the bag, and twist the bag to seal in the icing (as you would with a conventional piping bag).

3. Turn your biscuits upside down and pipe icing around the holes in the centre of each biscuit.

4. Place a Hershey’s Kiss on top of the icing and push down gently.

5. Pour a cup of tea and enjoy your handy work. It’s that easy!

Happy Halloween!
