Crazy Leprechaun Hat Cookies


Crazy Leprechaun Hat Cookies




First, melt the green candy melts.  Last year, I purchased the Wilton Chocolate Pro Electric Melting Pot at Jo-Ann's (with a coupon of course)  and I love it!  It melted the candy melts quickly and kept them at the perfect dipping consistency. You can also melt them in the microwave or a double boiler.



Next, use a fork (I used the set here) to dip a marshmallow in the green candy melts.  Make sure to completely cover the marshmallow.  Now dip the top of a cookie in the candy melts.  Place the dipped marshmallow on top of the dipped cookie and set on wax paper to set.  Your hands will be green, don't worry it washes (or licks) off easily!  Let the hats set for at least an hour.

Once the hats are completely set, use the black decorator frosting to create a hat band.




Today Connor & I had fun making 200 Crazy Leprechaun Hats for the kids at our church!
