Boo!  Bring some good fortune and an unexpected twist to your Halloween bash with these Spooky Fortune Cookies!  They couldn’t be easier to make (I used store-bought fortune cookies dipped in Candy Melts (you can get at Michael’sand JoAnn Fabrics).  Then decorated them with  Halloween cupcake toppers  and sprinkles I also got from Michael’s).  Before dipping in Candy Melts, you can also make personalized fortunes by microwaving fortune cookies for about 15 seconds.  Work quickly while they’re still pliable and open them up to stuff your own fortunes inside.  You can use dark chocolate chips as a substitute for black Candy Melts.  You can also try dyeing white chocolate chips with red and yellow food dye for orange Candy Melts.


24 fortune cookies

2 cups orange candy coating, such as Candy Melts

2 cups black candy coating, such as Candy Melts

Various Halloween themed cupcake sprinkles and decorations


  • Place orange candy coating and black candy coating in separate ceramic bowls. Heat orange candy coating at 30 second intervals in the microwave, stirring between each interval until melted and smooth. Set aside. Repeat steps with black candy coating. You may use a double boiler alternatively to melt candy coating.
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or wax paper. Place toppings in individual small bowls. Dip each cookie in either orange candy coating or white candy coating. Decorate with toppings as you desire. Place on cookie sheet. Once cookie sheet is full, place in freezer for 5 minutes to set. Store in an airtight container.
