Halloween Treat Idea
Halloween is one of those fun and whimsical holidays! It’s fun to decorate and fun to see all the originality and creativity friends and neighbors come up with!
We usually head to our friend’s house and walk the neighborhood trick-or-treating after having a block-wide potluck dinner.
These Easy 4-Ingredient Bat Treats are the hit of the party! Cute Halloween Treat recipes are the best! They make the best Halloween Potluck food!
A bite of chocolatey, peanut butter, Oreo goodness! Yum!
These Bat Bites are also fun to make with leftover Halloween Candy.
Ingredient for Halloween Bat Bites
- Oreo Thins – these thinner cookies break easier than regular Oreo cookies.
- Miniature Peanut Butter Cups – most grocery stores carry these.
- Edible Candy Eyeballs – you can find these at Walmart, Target, and Amazon.
- Frosting – any kind will do.
Other Supplies to Make Bat Treats
- Plastic baggie
How To Make Halloween Bat Treats
Since this Halloween treat is no-bake, they’re easy to make and easy to eat! Even the youngest of helpers would be able to construct these adorable Bat Themed Treats. It’s a nice make-ahead Halloween recipe.
We make ours in about 10 minutes.
Step 1 – Take Apart Cookies and Cut in Half
First, take apart your Oreo Thins and cut the cookie wafer in half or cut the cookie in half and then take apart. Unwrap Peanut Butter Cups.
Step 2 – Attach Wings
Take a baggie and add a small amount of frosting to it.
Cut the tip off the corner of the baggie and squeeze a small dab of frosting on the underside of the cut cookie wafer near one tip and attach it to the center of the Peanut Butter Cup.
Do the same for the other half of the cookie wafer.
Tip: You really only need a dab of frosting. Too much and it scoots out the sides and looks a little messy.
Step 3 – Attach Eyes
Finally, attach the candy googly eyes on top of the cookie wafer wings in the center of the Peanut Butter Cup with a dab of frosting.
Repeat steps until all your bat bites are done. Wasn’t that an easy Halloween treat idea?
Tips for Making Bat Bites
- These Bat Bites come together quickly once you’ve cut all the Oreo wafers in half. Cutting them whole and then pulling them apart resulted in less breakage, but play around and see what you find. Having a few broken cookies for snacking isn’t all that bad 🙂
- You can use any type of frosting in this recipe.
- Bat Bites are best eaten the day you make them.
