It's that Witch HAT time of year! In new packaging!

One of my seasonal sweet creations, Witch Hat Cookies!  I started making these many years ago when my girls were little!  I first saw the idea, I believe in Family Fun Magazine.  There are two previous posts HERE and HERE where I made hat cookies!  Be sure to check out the packaging!  

Some helpful hints for you, placing the icing on the Hershey Kiss as shown above will help limit the amount of icing that is pushed through the cookie center hole.  Personally, I prefer the Betty Crocker Icing as opposed to Wilton brand.  The Wilton brand has a more oil/water consistency to it.  Betty Crocker is more like a frosting consistency.  However, both will work!

For one package of Keebler Fudge Stripes which contain approximately 24 cookies, you will use one half of a 12 ounce package of Hershey Chocolate candy and one tube of orange icing.  Let the cookies set up for a couple hours before packaging. 

OH MY, when I first saw this stamp set, I let out a bit of a whoop!  Through the years and still to this day, I so enjoy making food type projects as gifts for friends and loved ones.  Baking Antique Tags One contains 10 clear stamps and is compatible custom JustRite Antique Tags One Dies.  Mason jars are so popular right now, but I have enjoyed using them for years!  

The jar image is stamped twice, once with VersaFine Black Onyx and once with Smokey Gray.  With a craft x-acto knife, I trimmed out the jar label area to allow a clear acetate panel.  I cut the lid from the gray stamped image and layered atop the black stamped jar.  The lid looks more realistic in gray, no? The sentiment is also stamped with black ink.  The jar contents are stamped with images from Samantha Walker's Boo-tiful Cameos JustRite Stamp Set.   
All the lovely string & ribbons are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!  The links are below in the product list.  That wonderful purple net ribbon comes in more colors too! This is a large Ball mason jar measuring 10 inches in height and easily hold all 24 cookies!  When I first started placing the cookies inside the jar, I did so using cooking tongs.  So much easier that getting my hand stuck!

Voila' a perfect container and tag for those traditional witch hat cookies!  I have a couple more mason jar goodies I will be sharing during the next week or so!  I hope this will inspire you to start planning and creating!  Take Good Care!
