Easy Chocolate Witch Hats Recipe (2 Ways!)

Perfect for Halloween or Harry Potter-themed parties, this Chocolate Witch Hats Recipe (or sorting hats) is so easy to make! Just like a classic top hat treat, this version has marshmallows covered in chocolate and topped with a Hershey’s kiss instead of an M&M. Make the deluxe version by placing it on top of a cookie!

❀️ Why you will love this recipe

  • Nostalgia: Did you grow up eating those wee chocolate marshmallow top hots at birthday parties? I loved them! These witch hats are a revamped version of the childhood classic treat.
  • Fun: You can decorate them as you like with sprinkles, edible glitter, candy eyes, and M&M’s!
  • 2 ways: These Chocolate Marshmallow Witch Hats can be made either on top of a cookie like an oreo or in a mini cupcake wrapper with a little extra chocolate. With the cookie it’s a stand-alone dessert, on the cupcake wrapper it’s great as a snack.
  • Easy: I helped my mum make the OG version of these growing up. My one-year-old is a bit little to help me this year, but bigger kids will love helping you put these together (and licking the bowl).
  • Delicious: Chocolate, marshmallows, a little kiss on top, and perhaps a cookie, what’s not to love?
  • Gluten-free + vegan: I made these gluten-free using gluten-free oreo cookies. Use vegan marshmallows and DIY vegan Hershey kisses to make a vegan version. If you don’t feel like making vegan kisses, try adding a vegan m&m on top instead. That’s what the traditional marshmallow top hats have. It’ll look a little less witchy but still taste delicious.

πŸ—οΈ Key Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Chocolate: I used melted semi-sweet chocolate chips that I buy from costco. They just happen to be vegan. Your favorite milk or dark chocolate will work too!
  • Marshmallows: Regular-sized jet-puffed marshmallows are just the right size and shape. You can also get vegan marshmallows that fit perfectly.
  • Sprinkles: I added some Halloween candy sprinkles to the marshmallow to add a little flair to the hat. You can skip it or use any color of sprinkles.
  • Hershey’s Kisses: I chose the almond kisses because they are my favorite, but any milk or dark chocolate kiss will work for this fun fall treat. If you’re in the UK, I bought mine on amazon, and they weren’t too pricey. You can make vegan Hershey kisses to make a vegan version, or just use a little M&M on top. Less pointy-hat looking but still tasty.
  • Oreos: This is optional, but you can use an oreo for the base of the witches hat, or just use melted chocolate in a mini cupcake paper liner. I used gluten-free Oreos, but regular would be fine too! You could also use another chocolate cookie like a chocolate digestive biscuit.

πŸ₯£ How to make Chocolate Marshmallow Witch Hats

1. Oreo or no oreo? Decide whether you want to make the hats on top of an oreo or in a mini cupcake paper liner.

2. Melt chocolate: Add melted chocolate to a bowl and place it over a pot of water, over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the chocolate has all melted. You can also melt chocolate in the microwave in 10-second intervals.

3. Dip oreo or spread on liner: If you’re using the oreos, dip one flat side into the melted chocolate and place it on a large baking sheet or parchment paper, melted chocolate side up. If you’re skipping the oreos, add a little melted chocolate to a flattened mini cupcake liner, and make a circle shape as best you can.

4. Dip the marshmallow: Add the marshmallow to a toothpick (pierce the smaller side first) and dip it into the melted chocolate, covering it completely, shaking off any excess. Dip the rim of the bottom of the marshmallow in Halloween sprinkles, turning it as you go. Place the marshmallow on top of the oreo or cupcake liner.

5. Add the kiss: Dip the flat side of the Hershey’s kiss in the chocolate and add it on top.

πŸ«™ Storage Instructions

Store this chocolate witch hats recipe in an airtight container for up to 5 days. I personally like to store them in the fridge and eat them cold, but they are fine at room temperature as well.

πŸͺ„ Recipe Notes & Tips

  • Chocolate: If you find the melted chocolate is too thick, add 1-2 teaspoons of refined coconut oil to thin it out a little. It’ll still set perfectly without the coconut flavor.
  • Decorations: I kept my decorations simple with just a few Halloween sprinkles, however, you can use any color of sprinkles, edible glitter, candy eyes, and M&Ms to decorate! Or skip the decorations altogether to make a Harry Potter Sorting Hate Recipe.
