Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 25 or more (just depends on how many you want to make!)

Ingredients

  • 25 Miniature Reeses Cups

  • 1/3 cup Pre-made cream cheese frosting (or homemade)
  • 50 Edible eyes

Instructions

  • Remove the wrappers from the Reeses cups.
  • Break the cookies in half and then separate all of the pieces from one another so you now have four "bat wings". Scrape off the frosting and discard (or eat!)

  • Press one cookie piece on the left of the Reeses cup and another cookie piece on the right of the Reeses cup.
  • Pipe frosting on the back of the edible eyes and secure on top of the center of the Reeses cup.
  • Enjoy!

4-ingredient Bat Halloween Treats

DIY PUMPKIN DECORATING IDEA

Next up, a “Bat Pumpkin”

My 2-year old went nuts over this project. He manned the Cricut machine and cut out every single bat you see here. He loved pressing the buttons! After cutting out about 10-15 bats, he didn’t need any help knowing what to press to continue cutting them out. If you don’t have a cricut, these bats can be hand-cut out using these templates (<–click to get to a pre-made template). But if you do have a cricut or similar machine, it will go a bit faster.

Supplies:

  • Bat cricut cut-out or template (link above) + scissors
  • Black construction paper
  • Miniature clothespins, optional
  • Varying sized goggly eyeballs (<–I bought a mega-pack that had 5 different sizes for about 5-6$)
  • Hot Glue Gun + Glue
  • Large Pumpkin

To Assemble:

Cut out lots of black bats in varying sizes. If you use the templates and scissors to cut out your bats, you may have to google search a few more templates to get all the different sizes that you want.

Once the bats are cut out, hot glue on the eyeballs. Then use the hot glue gun to attach the bats to the pumpkin. (I did the larger bats on one side of the pumpkin and the size of the bats decreased across the width of the pumpkin.) The miniature clothespins can be hot glued to the back of some of the bats to give different “heights” to the bats. This is optional, but gives the pumpkin a little bit more dimension. 

If you want, you could even hot glue the Halloween bat treats to the pumpkin (they’d no longer be edible) for a more 3D presentation. This is great if you’re unable to get paper supplies or cut the bats how you’d like.

Easy DIY Bat Halloween Party with treats and simple decorations

Okay and finally we are to the third Halloween bat decoration for your ultimate Bat Halloween party:

A DIY Creepy Bat Tree

Supplies:

  • Wooden bucket or vase or pot
  • Styrofoam block
  • Branches (you can find branches at a craft store; I just found the ones I used outside)
  • Brown packing paper or newspaper
  • Brown moss
  • Black construction pape
  • Varying sized googly eyeballs (<–I bought a mega-pack that had 5 different sizes for about 5-6$)
  • Miniature Clothespins
  • Hot glue gun + glue sticks

To Assemble:

Using the black construction paper and a cricut, cut out lots of black bats in varying sizes. If you use templates and scissors to cut out your bats, you may have to google search a few more templates to get all the different sizes that you want. Hot glue on eyeballs on the bats.

Cut the foam block to fit inside your vase or pot and hot glue to the bottom. Insert your branches into the foam block. Pack everything in with brown packing paper (or newspaper). Hot glue gun the moss to the paper.

Hot glue the bats to the branches. To get some of the bats to go a certain way you may need to use the clothespins. Hot glue the clothespins to the back of the bats and then attach to the branches.

Place a plate of Halloween bat treats right by this creepy bat tree so it looks like the bats have flown down! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you!!! I have bought edible eyes from craft stores (hobby lobby) and also from Walmart on their baking aisle by the sprinkles ☺️

  1. Here is my problem….. I would love to have my grand daughter help make the Bats made with the peanut butter cups. But they can’t be used because of possible peanut allergies…. any suggestions for a substitute?

  2. I’m the Editor of Fun Family Crafts and wanted to let you know that we have featured your yummy bat treat! You can see it here:

  3. 4 stars
    4 start only because the cookies were slightly difficult to cut. I wanted the wings slightly smaller than the instructions say, which is to cut them in half. My husband ended up cutting/sawing out a little in the middle. I also used left over melted white chocolate, from chocolate covered strawberries, to “glue” the wings and eyes on my bats. Would totally make them again! Huge hit for church refreshments!! Thank you for the super cute idea!! ???
