Witch Faces

Place 3 tablespoons of frosting in a small heavy-duty re-sealable plastic bag; tint orange with red and yellow food coloring. Set aside.

3. Witch Hat: Spread some of the remaining frosting in the center of chocolate wafers; press peanut butter cups upside down into frosting. Lightly spread bottoms of chocolate kisses with frosting; place on peanut butter cups. Cut a small hole in the corner of pastry or plastic bag; insert a small star tip. Fill the bag with frosting and pipe stars around the base of each peanut butter cup.
