No Bake Bat Treats
Premade donut holes or doughnut holes are a versatile base ingredient for creating fun snacks for Halloween. Oreo cookies can be cut in two to create bat wings and candy eyes are the perfect finishing touch.
Creative Halloween treats feature at many Halloween parties and gatherings. If you're in a rush why not put together these easy bat donut holes.
Ingredients for Bat Donut Holes
Here's a list of what you'll need for these spooky treats.
- Chocolate donut holes
- Candy eyes or candy eyeballs
- Icing (tube of store bought icing)
I use store bought donut holes for this treat. It makes this Halloween recipe super easy to assemble.
Chocolate flavor donut holes look great for bats. You could also use this decorating idea for cake pops.
The purpose of the icing is to act like glue and hold everything together. I like to use black icing but any color will do. Red icing will make your bats very scary looking if you let some be seen behind the eyes.
You can use melted dark chocolate or melted white chocolate instead of the store bought icing if you wish. Edible glue is another good alternative.
With a little bit of imagination the whole family can have fun making these charming edible crafts.
Instructions for Assembling Bat Doughnut Holes
Here's how to put these Halloween bats together.
Chocolate donut holes form the base of your bat treat. I featured three bats in this photo shoot, but purchase as many donut holes as you will need to serve all of your guests.
Next we need to create the bat wings. Split the Oreo cookies in half and scrape out the cream filling. Then snap each cookie in half to create bat wings.
You can cut the whole Oreos in half and retain the cream inside, with each half becoming a bat wing. However, they can end up being a little too heavy, and fall off the donut hole.
Use a little bit of icing to place candy eyes on each bat donut hole body. The color of the icing is totally up to you.
Place the donut holes on parchment paper to set.
Use a knife to place a small slit on the side of your donut hole. This is where you will insert the wings just above the eyes on each side of the donut hole. Carefully insert your oreo bat wings on each side.
Do not put large slits in the doughnut holes, since you don't want them to come apart.
Line up your tasty bats on a platter or tray to serve. I bet this will become one of your go to Halloween party recipes.
