Ingredients

Ingredients for Oreo Bats
  • Oreos
  • Dark chocolate melting wafers
  • Candy eyes

How to Make Easy Oreo Bats

Step 1: Remove the tops from 6 of the Oreos. Use a butter knife to scrape off the filling and reserve it for later. (You’ll need it to re-assemble the bats.)

Step 2: Using a sharp knife (I used a serrated one), cut the cookie tops in half. You should have 24 cookie pieces to make the wings.

Step 3: Twist the cookie tops off of the remaining 12 Oreo cookies and separate them from the cookie sides with the filling. Lay the cookies with filling on a cutting board
or parchment paper.

Step 4: Slide 2 “wings” (the cut cookie pieces from earlier) on each side of an Oreo cookie half that has filling still on it. Gently press into the cream.

Step 5: Place a bit of the reserved filling on top.

Step 6: Press one of the Oreo cookies without the filling on top to reassemble the cookie and seal on the wings. Place the cookies on a cooling rack.

Step 7: Place the chocolate melting wafers in a microwave safe bowl. Melt the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring between, until melted and smooth.

Step 8: Use a small spoon to drizzle the melted chocolate over the bat body, smoothing it out to cover the middle Oreo.

Step 9: Place two candy eyeballs into the melted chocolate. Repeat for all the bats and chill for 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to set. Serve and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • Make purple bats for a fun variation on this treat! You can use purple candy melts to get this color or color white chocolate with purple food coloring.
  • When dividing the cookies in half, be sure to use a sharp knife, and use a back-and-forth sawing motion to cut. This will help ensure that they slice cleanly and don’t break into pieces.
  • If you don’t have edible eyes, you can make the eyeballs yourself. Just use a tiny bit of Oreo cream filling and roll it into two small balls. Flatten it into a circle and place on the chocolate. Then place a mini chocolate chip in the center of the circle.

How Do I Store Oreo Bats?

Store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you’re going to have multiple layers, place a piece of parchment paper or wax paper in between each layer so they don’t stick.

Sure! Just about any type of round sandwich cookie will work.
