Prep: 15 min
Cook: 0 min
Ready in: 15 min



1 – 550g box

Dad’s Chocolatey Coated Oatmeal cookies


OR FOR GLUTEN-FREE: 1 – 220g box of Kinnickkinnick K-Toos Chocolate Sandwich Cream cookies

2 – 120g tubes

Cake Mate Decorating Icing, in Halloween colours

1 – 200g bag

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Kisses


1. Place 1 cookie upside-down on your work surface.


If you’re using K-Toos to make the GF version, twist the 2 chocolate halves apart, scrape off the icing from both, and use each cookie-half as the base of a hat.

2. Squeeze 1 tsp (6g) of icing onto the middle of the bottom of the cookie, keeping the tip of the tube close to the cookie so that the icing spreads out evenly in a circle.

3. Place 1 Hershey’s Kiss in the middle of the icing.

Repeat for the rest of the cookies and… you’re done!
