Simple, cute, festive, and fun-to-make Halloween treats — every with 4 substances or much less. Monster eyeballs, witches hats, witches brooms, and bat bites. Video tutorial included!
Sure. You learn that proper….HALLOWEEN treats. Okay you in all probability know by now that I’m all the time posting issues manner earlier than the precise season/vacation, however 2 months early? I’m not normally that unhealthy. So hear me out on this one. First off, these cute bat bites went loopy on my website final yr. It was so enjoyable for me to see how many individuals re-created them on Instagram or Fb. (Thanks for tagging me in your photos; it makes my day!)
In any case, these bat bites are choosing up once more already and due to that I’ve gotten fairly a number of emails asking if I had every other related concepts. I assume you guys are determining your Halloween events already! That, and, I acquired an electronic mail from Pinterest the opposite day informing me that of their checklist of most searched issues proper now’s “Halloween Meals.” So clearly, it was essential for me to put up these Halloween concepts now…two months early.
First off, right here’s a fast video overview of those 4 concepts:
First up: MONSTER EYEBALLS:
How creepy/cute are eyeballs for Halloween? Particularly in an assortment of varied shiny colours! The coloured pupils are comprised of gummy lifesavers and hooked up with white frosting to offer a little bit little bit of the whites/sclera to the eyes. The bottom is a mini Reese’s cup and the white frosting is piped on utilizing frosting in a plastic bag. Merely refill a plastic bag with about 1/4-1/three cup frosting at a time after which snip off the tip with scissors. You can also make your personal cream cheese frosting OR purchase it from a bath on the retailer.
The within circle of the lifesaver completely kinds a circle so that you can pipe within the pupil. To make the pupil tremendous simple, I used Wilton Black Sparkle Gel from a tube, however alternatively, you’ll be able to dye additional white frosting black and pipe it by one other plastic bag.
- Miniature Reese’s Cups
- Cream Cheese Frosting
- Chewy Lifesavers
- Wilton Black Sparkle Gel or additional frosting dyed black
Unwrap the mini reese’s cups.
Put together the cream cheese frosting OR use frosting from a bath.
Place about 1/4 – 1/three cup of frosting at a time right into a plastic bag and press to at least one nook. Snip off the tip of the nook with scissors.
Pipe the frosting onto the highest of the reese’s cups.
Press a chewy lifesaver face down (so you do not see the phrases “lifesaver”) onto the frosting.
Pipe the black sparkle gel frosting into the middle of the lifesaver.
Subsequent: WITCHES HATS:
These aren’t too revolutionary, however a number of issues make these witch hats particularly cute. The primary is to make use of the THIN Oreos. This makes the bottom look extra like the bottom of a hat as an alternative of a cookie :). I take advantage of chocolate-creme Oreo Thins to make it fully darkish so that you don’t see white coming by the Oreo. This simply all helps in making it seem extra hat-like.
The opposite issues that make these hats particularly cute are the totally different colours and sprinkles. I separated frosting into two bowls and dyed one orange and one inexperienced. Pipe the dyed frosting into the middle of the cookie and press a kiss down on high. Earlier than the frosting dries, add some festive Sprinkles! (<— these are the sprinkles that I used on the inexperienced cookies and the opposite sprinkles I discovered at Goal.)
- Chocolate creme Oreo THINS cookies
- Cream cheese frosting
- Chocolate sweet kisses
I take advantage of inexperienced and orange
- Optionally available: Halloween/festive sprinkles
Take away the Oreos from the bundle.
Separate the cream cheese frosting (make your personal or purchase from a bath on the retailer) into two bowls.
Dye one bowl inexperienced and one orange (or no matter enjoyable Halloween colours you want!)
Put 1/4-1/three cup of every frosting coloration right into a plastic bag and press the frosting to at least one nook. Snip the tip of the nook off of the bag and pipe a big round blob in the course of the cookies.
Evenly press down the unwrapped chocolate sweet kisses into the middle of the cookie.
Pour a small quantity of sprinkles across the frosting on the cookies.
Third: WITCHES BROOMS:
Once more, not fully revolutionary, however these are significantly simple and positively a should have if you’re making witches hats! The one contact that makes these particularly cute is the tie across the base of the broom. That tie is simply pull aside Twizzlers that you just’ll pull aside into particular person strands after which reduce. Tie it on the pretzel rod after which snip off the ends. Doesn’t get a lot simpler than that!
- Miniature Reese’s Cups
- Pretzel Rods
- Pull aside Twizzlers
Unwrap the Reese’s cups and flip the wrong way up.
Within the very heart, gently press in a pretzel rod.
Pull aside twizzlers and reduce in thirds.
Tie one particular person strand across the pretzel. Tighten after which snip off the ends with scissors.
And at last, BAT BITES:
These aren’t new (they first appeared on my site last year, you can see that post here), however because the video consists of all of those treats, I believed I’d put it in right here once more! An important factor to notice with these treats is that you just’ll positively need to use the THIN Oreos. Common Oreos are a little bit heavy and simply don’t appear to remain put in the identical manner that the skinny ones do.
And probably the most generally requested query for these treats is the place to search out the edible eyes. They’re really very accessible and at most grocery shops. They’re normally with different baking goodies — look close to the cupcake provides together with sprinkles and meals colorings. You can even get them at crafting shops like Interest Foyer or JoAnns. OR they may also be purchased online.
- Miniature Reeses Cups

make sure that to get the thins!

Take away the wrappers from the Reeses cups.

Press one cookie piece on the left of the Reeses cup and one other cookie piece on the suitable of the Reeses cup.
Pipe frosting on the again of the edible eyes and safe on high of the middle of the Reeses cup.
Get pleasure from!
