"LOVED them. Now I find myself just making the filling and putting it into pie shells. Be sure to eat the hats quickly though, they can get soft from the moisture."

"These are my favorite to make for my kids halloween parties. I have gotten very creative and made my own base using melted chocolate poured in a circle. To keep the inside from getting soggy I line it with melted chocolate. Just melt chocolate and brush the inside using a paint brush."
