These adorably evil, melted witch puddle Halloween cookies are the perfect spooky treat to honor the horrible Wicked Witch of the West from the classic The Wizard of Oz. They are truly evil, right down to their freakish fatty core. I’m not kidding, check out the nutrtional value on these witches…

Didn’t I tell you! They are BAD! But…really quiet devilicious and more than appropriate for the season. I just had too, he he he he….

If you are tempted, and I’m sure you could be, do like I did and make just A dozen of these Halloween cookies. We each indulged in just one wicked witch, and then spread the left over evil to others, muha ha ha ha haaaa! We are so wicked… HEY, tis the season my prettys! HAA Ha ha ha ha haaa! :}

For 3 dozen melted witch puddle Halloween cookies you’ll need:

  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 4 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1-1/2 cups flaked coconut
  • 2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons shortening, divided
  • 36 chocolate creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 36 Bugles
  • 4 cups vanilla or white chips
  • 36 pretzel sticks

1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine water and food coloring; add coconut. Seal bag and shake to tint coconut; set aside. In a microwave melt chocolate chips and 2 tablespooons of shortening; stir until smooth.

2. For witchs’ hats, place about 1/3 cup chocolate mixture in a resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in corner of bag. Pipe a small amount of chocolate on a cookie. Dip a Bugle in some of remaining chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Position over chocolate on cookie, forming a witch’s hat. Set on waxed paper to dry. Repeat with remaining chocolate, Bugles, and cookies.

3. For puddles, melt vanilla chips and the remaining shortening; stir until smooth. Place mixture in a large resealable heavy duty plastic bag; cut a small hole in the corner of the bag. Pipe mixture into shape of puddle onto waxed paper-lined baking sheets. Use a spoon to spread out puddle.

4. Immediately place a witch’s hat on the puddle. Place a pretzel stick alongside the hat; sprinkle reserved tinted coconut at the end of the pretzel stick. Repeat with remaining puddles, hats and brooms. Chill for 15 minutes or until set. Store in an air tight container.

By now I’m sure you’re ready to kill me for sharing such an evil, tempting, horribly bad for you in every possible way treat… Yeah, I kinda roll like that, LOL! But, you know what? This is health-actually, not health-fanatically. 🙂 To me, it doesn’t seem right to share just the good stuff that we eat with you. It almost feels dishonest. We’re not perfect, and we certainly don’t strive to be. We do, however, make an effort to keep it real, and that’s what health-actually is all about. I actually do make treats like these Halloween Cookies for my family, every now and again, and they really do love to eat them – especially Randy which I’m sure he’s probably mentioned a time or too.

Our trick to eating this Halloween Cookies treat is to SHARE. We each enjoy our one treat and then give the rest away. That’s why I scaled down the recipe and made only a dozen Halloween cookies. It may not be the nicest gift to give, but it is a mouthwatering one. I love to be wicked sometimes…don’t you? Or maybe you’d just like to kill me instead…

Ding Dong! The Witch is dead. Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
Wake up – sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead. She’s gone where the goblins go,
Below – below – below. Yo-ho, let’s open up and sing and ring the bells out.
Ding Dong’ the merry-oh, sing it high, sing it low.
Let them know
The Wicked Witch is dead!

We can’t all be “Dorothy” in the land of Oz,

PS. Only 24 days left…”Fly Monkeys, FLY! EEEEE He He hehehehee!
