Substitutions and Additions:

  • Change the Icing – You can use any color icing or make your own icing.  We just used store bought icing to keep it simple but you do what works for you.

  • Use Different Cookies – Oreos or chocolate cream cookies that work great for these cookies. Peanut Butter cookies work great also.
  • Chocolate Chips – We also have used chocolate chips instead of the candy corn on the cookie.
  • Peanut Butter – Top your fudge stripped cookie with peanut butter then place your kiss on the peanut butter for a fun look.
