My 5-year-old son has recently become interested in cooking. He plays in his toy kitchen with great enthusiasm and is always bringing me plastic delicacies to try.

I’ve therefore been on the lookout for ways that he can help me with real food in the kitchen. There are many thing that he can do. But there are few items that he can make himself from start to finish.

This easy Halloween recipe is super simple and only needs three ingredients: Hershey’s Kisses, chocolate covered cookies and a tube of icing.

And, best of all, these Chocolate Witches’s Hats are easy enough that a 5-year old can make one from start to finish all by himself.

In fact, my 5-year-old not only made these witches’ hats but here he is explaining how to do it.

Chocolate Witches' Hats
Prep time
Total time
These witches' hats are so that a 5-year-old can make them. Watch *my* 5-year-old make them here. They're fun for adults to make (and eat!) too.
Recipe type: dessert
Serves: 20
  • 20 chocolate-striped cookies (like these, with one side striped, one side solid chocolate)
  • a tube of orange decorating icing (like this)
  • 20 Hershey's kisses
  1. Put a cookie on a plate, solid-chocolate-side-up (striped-side-down).
  2. Squeeze about ½ teaspoon of the icing onto the flat side of one Hershey's kiss. Hold the kiss so that it's icing-side-down. Place the kiss over the hole in the cookie so that the hole is completely covered. Push down on the kiss gently to spread the icing around the kiss, adhering it to the cookie and causing the icing to form an orange band around the base of the kiss.

    I just made these too :-) Too bad I don’t have an adorable 5 year old to help me make them!
