Ingredients for Halloween Bat Treats
For these bat treats, pick up your favorite chocolate rolled snack cakes.
We used the Swiss Rolls, Little Debbie snack cakes.
You’ll also need some semi-sweet chocolate chips and fun Halloween candy eyes and a black food marker.
These will work without the black food marker, but we gave our bats little fangs to give that “vampire bat” feeling, which is perfect for a Halloween snack.
How to Make Bat Treats
To make these bat treats, start by drawing a set of bat wings onto some parchment paper.
Leave enough room in between each wing for the snack cake to go.
Using your black food marker, draw a cute little mouth onto your snack cake. We drew sets of cute bat fangs.
Using the microwave or the double broiler method, melt your chocolate chips until its creamy and smooth.
Be careful not to burn your chocolate as it will make the texture hard to work with.
Place your melted chocolate into a pastry bag with a small tip or use a small squeeze bottle for better control over your chocolate.
Squeeze two small dots of chocolate for each eye of your bat treat. Then attach a candy to each dot of chocolate making sure its secured.
Using the squeeze bottle, trace the bat wing shape with the chocolate and fill it in like. Pipe a strip of the chocolate in the middle of the wings to act as the glue for your snack cake bat.
Place your bat body onto the strip of chocolate and press down gently.
Place your bat treat into the fridge to set for 5-10 minutes.
Carefully remove your bat treats from the fridge and carefully peel away the parchment paper.
You’re bat treats are done and ready to serve as a fun Halloween treat!
