How Do You Make Easy Bat Peanut Butter Cups?
To make Halloween bats you will need to get a few things from your local craft store. Items like candy eyes and a small tube of red gel. The other items are from the grocery store.
Miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups, chocolate icing (or you can use homemade chocolate icing) and chocolate wafer cookies are all that you need.
You could also use melted chocolate to attach the wings and the eyes. It does harden faster than the icing.
To assemble you just need to put some icing or chocolate on the bottom of the wider side of the peanut butter cup and attach the “wings”.
The wings are just a thin chocolate wafer broken in half. You can then place these on a cookie tray to let them dry or proceed with eyes and mouth too.
Using a toothpick add some icing to the eyeballs and attach them to the top of the peanut butter cup. Add a drop of red food gel for the mouth and your creation is complete!!
Let Your Bats Take Flight
These little bats are hauntingly cute!! Attach the wings in different patterns of flight, with some wings up and some down to signify movement.
These would be great for a party to serve up to guests young and old. The kids can help you make them and that always makes them proud to present them!! They really would be a party hit.
They are also just fun to make as a family without any party to go to and of course even more fun to eat!!
I even would make some Chocolate Walnut Cookies (one of my favorite cookies that are gluten free too) and scatter some bats among them to scare up the plate a bit for something fun.
Peanut butter and chocolate remind me of Halloween. These really made Amber smile while she made them; they are so cute and so easy to make.
I like an edible craft when you don’t have to bake or make anything, just simply buy what you need. It is strictly assembly only! They are somewhere between a cookie and candy.
Polar Bear Cookies
Later on in the season you may want to make these adorable Polar Bear Cookies, they are fun to make too and has been a very popular edible craft!!
These can be made all winter long and again, a few added here and there really make a plate shine.
They are perfect to add to a cookie box for gift giving. They will instantly make someone smile when they open up their box!
These Easy Bat Peanut Butter Cups come together in a matter of minutes. Try some out this Halloween season you will have fun making them guaranteed!! Happy Hauntings!!
