Harry Potter Sorting Hat Cookies


We are well into the preparations for my daughter's Harry Potter birthday party. One of our biggest concerns was how to sort the kids? We wanted it to be random and fun, so we came up with these cookies. Each cookie is filled with a different color of M&Ms. The kids each pick their cookie and then break it open to find out which house they are in!

Who doesn't love finding out what house they are in for the party, especially when it comes with a little sugar?


You will need:

  • Chocolate Cookies (I made cake mix cookies using a chocolate cake mix)
  • Sugar Cones
  • Chocolate Candy Rolls
  • Mutil-Colored Candy
  • Melting Chocolate or Chocolate Frosting



First separate your color candies into four different piles. Blue for Ravenclaw, green for Slytherin, yellow for Hufflepuff and red for Gryffindor.

Work the chocolate candy rolls with your hands until they are soft and you are able to mold them. Each Sorting Hat face took about three chocolate rolls. Two for the eyebrow line and one for the mouth line. You aren't working to an exact science, just working to give it a little bit of a face. You can find Sorting Hat pictures here, to get a better idea of what you are working towards.

Once your face is on your ice cream cone, fill your cone with one color of candy and then dip the bottom of your cone in either melted chocolate or frosting to secure it to the brim of the hat, or the chocolate cookie. I used just a little bit of melted chocolate, I felt like it was cleaner. After your Sorting Hat is secured, you are ready to be sorted. Have each person randomly grab a hat and discover what house they are in!


Which house do you hope you are sorted into?

Oh how fun! I've had a couple HP themed parties in the past - just for fun - and I really want to do another one at some point. I'll have to remember this. Even my 20-something friends would love it!

I'm actually doing a whole HP month this month if you want to stop by and enter giveaways, etc.
