That witch in the Wizard of Oz never could get a break . . . now you’ll have a delicious treat in her melted honor.

Halloween is fun . . . and the food can be, too.meltedwitchpuddles

Witch Puddles doesn’t sound all that appealing . . . but with Oreo Cookies and Hershey Kisses . . . It’s a chocolate feast in a puddle.

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients make about 3 dozen Puddle Witches

  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 4 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of flaked coconut
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons shortening, divided
  • 36 Oreo cookies
  • 36 Hershey Kisses
  • 4 cups vanilla or white chocolate chips
  • 36 pretzel sticks


  1. Place water and food coloring in a large resealable plastic bag.
  2. Add coconut to the bag.
  3. Seal and shake to tint the coconut.
  4. In the microwave, melt chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons shortening. Stir until smooth.
  5. Let’s make the witches’ hats! Place 1/3 cup of the chocolate mixture in a resealable plastic bag. Cut a small hole in a corner of the bag.
  6. Pipe a small amount of chocolate on a cookie.
  7. Dip the Kiss in the chocolate on the Oreo.
  8. Set on waxed paper to dry. Repeat for the remaining cookies.
  9. For the puddles, melt the vanilla or white chocolate chips with the remaining shortening. Stir until smooth.
  10. Place the mixture in a large resealable plastic bag, cut a small hole in a corner of the bag.
  11. Pipe the mixture into the shape of a puddle onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet.
  12. Place a witch’s hat on the puddle.
  13. Place a pretzel stick alongside the hat; sprinkle with tinted coconut at the end of the pretzel stick to look like a broom.
  14. Repeat with remaining puddles, hats and brooms.
  15. Chill for 15 minutes or until set.
  16. Store in an airtight container.

If you’d like, you may want to tint the white chocolate with green food coloring . . . but I think the white works fine . . .

This is a fun project your friends and family will enjoy.
