WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- yellow candy coating (I like Wilton’s Yellow Candy Melts)
- Oreos (regular size and mini)
You can find these ingredients at Walmart or on Amazon (and you don’t even have to leave your house). The Candy Melts are usually found by the cake decorating supplies and party supplies. If you don’t care for candy coating and what to use regular white chocolate died yellow, just be careful because white chocolate tends to seize or become hard when coloring is added. If you go that route you may need to add a little oil to thin the chocolate and avoid seizing the chocolate. I prefer regular white chocolate but for this, it’s so much easier to just use the yellow candy melts.
HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE EASY BAT COOKIES?
STEP 1: Melt the yellow Candy Melts. This usually only takes a minute or so in the microwave. Heat the chips for about 30 seconds at a time, stirring in between. Once it’s melted, dip one side of the regular-sized oreo cookies to coat. These are your “yellow moons.” Set them aside on a sheet of waxed paper to set and harden. (See the first picture below)
Note: Another benefit to using yellow Candy Melts is that candy coating chocolate sets harder and quicker than regular chocolate. This fact is always a good thing when you’re in a hurry.
STEP 2: Split the mini Oreos to reveal the cream filling. With the cream filling on one side (use this side for the body of the bat), break the non-cream side in half for the wings. Use a small amount of cream as glue on each wing and attach the wings to the cookie “body.” (See the second picture below)
STEP 3: After the chocolate-covered “full moons” are set, lightly pressed the mini Oreo bat onto the cookie. (See the third picture below). You’re done!
THESE BAT COOKIES ARE SOOO EASY!!!
You’re done. That’s it! Quick and easy, right? I love treats like this. The ones that come together so quickly, look fabulous and taste great.
