I'm Meeeeelllllltiiiiiiing.....

I know that Halloween is over, but I couldn't resist not blogging about these little witches! They are so cute and so much fun to make!! I first made them for my husband to take to school for his kids and they loved them, so I decided to make them for my co-workers!!! I actually saw the recipe while I was at Lowe's!! My husband was off looking at stuff, so I went and looked at the cookbooks in the front of the store! The recipe was in the seasonal Halloween Taste Of Home magazine! I don't have the "actual" recipe, (because I didn't buy the book, and I couldn't find it online) but they looked like they would be so easy to make on my own without one. I do give all the credit to Taste of Home! (which I subscribe to and love!!)

I am sorry about my camera broke a couple of months ago and I had to have I just bought a cheap point and shoot camera! I guess you get what you pay for! I promise to get a better one soon!

What you need:
1 bag of Halloween Oreo's
1 Bag of stick pretzels
1 Bag Bugles
1 - 2 cups Shredded Coconut
Yellow Food Coloring
2 bags of White Chocolate Chips
Orange Food Coloring
1 bag of Milk Chocolate Chips
To Assemble:
First in a gallon size zip-lock bag combine your shredded coconut with a couple drops of yellow food coloring. (I kept adding drops until I liked the yellow color....and just seal and shake the bag to get the color all over the coconut) Set the yellow coconut aside. Next set your Oreo's out on wax paper. Take the bag of Milk Chocolate Chips and place the chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave until melted. Take a Bugle (I tried to use only the ones that were flat on the bottom and had a good circle to them...that helps them sit on the Oreo) and dip it in the melted Milk Chocolate Chips. I just used my fingers to get lots of chocolate on them. Make sure there is enough on the bottom to seal it to the Oreo. Once it is covered just place on the Oreo and let it dry. While the "Hats" dry, take the 2 bags of White Chocolate Chips and melt the chips in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl. Once melted take out and add a couple drops of orange food coloring to color the chocolate orange! Place the orange melted chocolate into a gallon size zip-lock bag. Snip off a small part of one corner of the bag. Be careful the chocolate is still warm. On another piece of wax paper, pipe a good amount of the chocolate (I would say a little bigger than a half dollar) onto the wax paper...repeat until you have used up your chocolate. Take your hats and push them into your "orange puddles". Then place one pretzel next to the hat for the broom stick. Sprinkle some of the yellow coconut on top of one end of the pretzel for the broom straw (make sure it is the end that has chocolate so it sticks!) Repeat until you are out of your Oreo hats! Cool until the chocolate sets ... I let mine cool over night. Once the chocolate is set, use a metal pie server to scrap them off the wax paper! ENJOY!!!
