October is here.. my favorite month of the year and the kick-off to all things festive :)
Along with pumpkin patching, trick-or-treating and quilting; fall means it’s time to bake. My boys love helping me in the kitchen… especially my youngest son! We call him the future chef because he is always asking about ingredients and wants to taste every single spice that goes into every dish. When I came across the Wicked Good Witch Hat Cookies from Imperial Sugar I knew the boys would love making them. Imperial has a ton of spooky new recipes and crafts you can do with your kids. So many great ideas that would be great for Halloween parties, favors, neighbor or teacher gifts, etc. They also have free printables, coloring pages and activities for kids!
- Oreo cookies
- Green fondant
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups Imperial Sugar Confectioners Powdered Sugar
- To make edible playdough: use your hands to mix peanut butter, honey and powdered sugar in large bowl. The dough should be soft enough to be pliable and not sticky.
- Shape dough into cone shape for top of witch hat.
- In ziplock bag, crush several Oreo cookies (without the creamy filling) into small pieces.
- Empty crushed cookies onto a plate and roll each “playdough” witch hat in the Oreos until coated
- Place coated hat on top of Oreo cookies. If the hat doesn’t want to stay, you can use a dollup of canned icing to hold it in place.
- Cut thin strip of green fondant to make a band for the hat. Attach to cookie at base of cone-shaped top.
The recipe starts out with edible play dough! How fun is that? I could just stop there and the boys would be happy :) I really wanted them to try as much of this recipe themselves… brace yourselves moms, this gets kind of messy but they will love it! They mixed Imperial powdered sugar, peanut butter and honey with their HANDS!
Can you believe this turns into play dough?!
After we made the play dough (and played with it a little :) I let the boys form the dough into little cones.
Then we made cookie crumbs in the food processor. The boys also loved this part!
We rolled the cones in the cookie crumbs and placed them on an oreo. The last step is to add a green fondant ribbon to finish the witch hat!
Now… ours aren’t as pretty as the ones on the Imperial Sugar page, but the boys were so proud! And besides a little measuring, they pretty much made them with no help! I love how they turned out!
How cute would these be for a Halloween Party or a Playgroup craft project!? Be sure to check out the Imperial Sugar page for more fun Halloween Ideas!
