Easy Halloween Treats

I've always had to work on Halloween. I think the one year I didn't, we lived in an apartment building so no kids came to the door...I was SOOO sad. Trick or Treaters are my favorite part of Halloween. Well this year Halloween is on a Sunday and that means lots of parties this weekend...and if you're like me. You want to impress, without too much effort...

Well I found 2 easy, super cute recipes that are bound to please and SO easy to do!

Witch Hat Cookies
You will need:
1 package Fudge Stripe Shortbread Cookies
1 tube colored decorating frosting
1 bag Hershey's kisses (unwrapped)

Pipe a little bit of frosting in the center of the cookie. Press the kiss into the frosting. Pipe a small band around the kiss and decorate as you please.
I didn't even do that much. I did mine at 4 am so I just put a big enough blob of frosting so that when I pushed the kiss down it squished out the side and made its own band. The only down side to doing it my way is that you have to keep them on a flat surface until the frosting sets or the kisses will slide.

Cute Spider Cookies
You will Need:
1 package of chocolate sandwich cookies (oreos)
1 tub vanilla or chocolate frosting
1 bag chocolate covered pretzels
1 box red hots or mini m&m's

Preparation :
Split the cookies, instructions say to scrape out the filling and replace with the frosting..I say Just add some of your frosting to the top! (TRIPPLE STUFFFFFFFF!!) Its easiest to do this with a piping bag if you don't have one you can make your own by placing frosting into a zip-lock bag and then cutting off one of the corners. Always cut your corner too small...you can make it bigger...but not smaller. Then brake the curvy parts off of 2-3 pretzels and stick them into the sides of the frosting. Then place your top back on your cookie and place 2 red hots as eyes either into the frosting or you can add a little frosting to each eye and stick them to the top of the cookie.
A lady at work made the spider cookies for our halloween snack day. I made witch hats and she made spiders. They were the CUTEST things I've ever seen! I had to take a few home so I could get pics...and cuz they were so yummy!
Here are my witch hats...can you tell I made them at 4 am?
Or you can make witch spiders! ;)
