To begin, melt chocolate wafers at thirty-second intervals till melted in a microwave-safe dish.
First, place sucker sticks in each slot in the mold, then pour chocolate into the mold.
Second, make sure the stick is covered in the mold where it sits in the circle of the mold.
Third, pick up molds and plop them onto the counter lightly to remove air bubbles in chocolate to make a smoother surface.
Fourth, place in the freezer or fridge to let set. When the chocolate has set, you can begin to decorate.
Winifred (Bette Midler) Cookie
We used strawberry wafers for the base color. For her hair color, we mixed red and orange. For her lips, we used red chocolate and black for her eye color.
Once we set the base color, we placed orange wafers and a few red in a frosting bag to make Winifred’s hair. We recommend heating the chocolate in 30-second increments.
The red gives slight highlight colors in the hair. We started on the right side of the base lollipop.
Next, we swirled the chocolate in a pattern for her hair, one right oblong circle, one left, and a circle in the middle to complete her hairstyle.
Then melt black chocolate and red chocolate in separate frosting bags.
We heated these in 15-second increments. We used black dots or half-circles for eyes and red for lips to make the witch.
Sarah Sanderson (Sara Jessica Parker) Cookie
We used a white chocolate lollipop and yellow and orange wafers for her hair, black for eyes, and red for lips.
After your lollipop base is set. Place yellow wafers (about 20) and (8 orange wafers) in a frosting bag.
Distribute the orange wafers throughout the bag.
We melted at 30-second increments, started at the top of the base with a small line. Then, squeeze the hair down the sides of the lollipop to create long blonde hair. Next, on the right and left sides to add eye and lip colors to the base.
Mary Sanderson (Kathy Najimy) Cookie
We used a caramel-flavored base color.
Tip: You can use peanut butter chocolate wafers if you know you have no one allergic to peanuts in your group.
After the base is set, use black chocolate wafers in frosting; swirl chocolate on both sides of the base, add a long swirl on top of the base for Mary’s hair and add eyes and lips.

In addition, these Halloween suckers or chocolate lollipops can be used as party favors, prizes for a Halloween party, or a treat or dessert for a Halloween baby shower centered around the Hocus Pocus theme.
For a fun idea, you could even add I smell a child or children to the outside of the caldron.
Lastly, to make the cookie tin. We used a black cauldron. Added a styrofoam ball inside and wrapped with a piece of the green table cloth. It was wonderfully witchy!
