Earlier this week we played ghost and booed some of our friends! It’s a tradition I always look forward to. I still remember the first time I took Peyton when she was two-years-old… she cried when we left every house because she didn’t get the concept of dropping off treats to surprise our friends! It’s such a funny story to look back on.
This year both kids were very into pretending to be ghosts while walking up houses and had a lot of fun placing bags on our friend’s porches. We used ghost cello bags I found at a grocery store and attached Hayden and North’s Halloween mini prints with festive yarn. We filled them with these chocolate covered oreos (we make these every year!!) and decided to make a new treat too.
These witch hats are so darn cute and even though it seems complicated connecting two separate snack foods together, it’s actually very simple and only takes a few minutes to put together. If your kids are old enough, this is a really great recipe to have them help with. Whether they dip the Oreos and Bugles in chocolate, or garnish them with sprinkles, it’s a great way to spend time together in the kitchen.
Not only are they cute, they’re actually delicious too! I was able to make a few extras and enjoy them myself, and my favorite part is the top of the witch hat. Chocolate-dipped Bugles are soooo good! Who would have thought?

Chocolate Witch Hats
- 10 oz of dark melting chocolate
- Parchment or wax paper
- 20-25 Oreo Thins
- 20-25 Bugle chips (chose ones that are shaped well and can stand up on their own)
- Halloween sprinkles
Place the dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals (stirring in between each interval) until melted. When the chocolate is melted, place parchment paper or wax paper on a hard, clean surface.
Start by dipping and covering the Oreo Thin with chocolate and place it on the parchment paper. Do the same with one Bugle chip and place it on top of the Oreo Thin to create a witch hat. You’ll want to add the Bugle chip right after covering the Oreo in chocolate to avoid the chocolate hardening. Garnish the Oreo with sprinkles and let the chocolate harden. Repeat with the remaining Oreo Thins and Bugles.
