Reese’s Bats by Delish (SUPER easy!)
This recipe is just super easy and cute! All you need is 15 min to prepare them and results in 10 Reese’s bats. Check out the ingredients and follow the steps!
- 10 mini-Reese’s cups
- 5 Oreos
- 20 candy eyes
- 1 tbsp. peanut better
- Cut all Oreo cookies in half and gently remove the cream. Cut each half in half to create the wings.
- Using a toothpick or a small spoon, apply a small dab of peanut butter to one end of each Oreo. Press onto the Reese's cup to make wings.
- Next, place a small dab of peanut butter onto the back of two candy eyes and place on top of the edge of the wings and serve.
The famous Poison Apples by Delish
Time needed: 30 min – Serves: 10
- 10 small apples
- 10 long sticks
- 1 ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ½ cup light corn syrup
- ¾ cup water
- ½ teaspoon purple gel food coloring
- ¼ teaspoon black gel food coloring
(Food coloring can be chosen according to your preferences)
- Insert wooden sticks into the center of each apple and set aside.
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment and grease with butter or cooking spray.
- In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water, and corn syrup. Stir in gel food coloring and turn heat to medium-high. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir constantly until sugar dissolves. Then lower the heat to medium and let it boil, without stirring, until it nears about 290° with a candy thermometer — which is close to the hard-crack mark stage. Remove from heat.
- Working quickly, tilt the pan and dip the apples in the mixture, twirling the apple through the candy to coat evenly. Hold the apple over the mixture for few seconds before placing on the greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining apples. Let cool completely.
Spider Cookie Truffles by the Country Living (SUPER easy!)
Time needed: 2 hours 30 min – Serves: 36
- 36 chocolate sandwich cookies
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cut into pieces, at room temperature
- 2 (12 ounce) bags semisweet chocolate chips, melted
- Edible candy balls
- Black string licorice, cut into 2-inch each
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Process cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs form, about 30 seconds. Add cream cheese and pulse until combined, 15 to 20 times. Scoop mixture into 1 1/4-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheet. Freeze until firm, 1 hour.
- Dip cookies in chocolate; return to baking sheet. Decorate with edible candy eyeballs and black string licorice. Refrigerate until set, 1 hour.
Total time needed: 30 min – Serves: 1 ½ pounds
- 2 (4 ounce) bars dark chocolate, chopped
- 1 (8 ounce) package purple candy melts
- 1 (8 ounce) package green candy melts
- Assorted sprinkles and candies
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Divide dark chocolate, purple candy melts, and green candy melts between 3 microwave-safe bowls. Heat each separately for 1 minute, then stir. Continue heating in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until completely melted.
- Pour contents of each bowl onto the pan in random spots; don't worry if they overlap. Shake pan to spread melted chocolate and candy. Use a knife to swirl colors together and shake pan again to spread even more. Sprinkle Halloween sprinkles and candy over chocolate mixture. Let set, about 15 minutes. Break into shards.
