Marshmallows, melting chocolate, candy eyes, Oreos, (optional) mini chocolate chips, sticks. To prepare, get out 1 Oreo for every two bats that you are making. Take the icing away and break each cookie part in half. Get out 2 mini chocolate chips for every one bat and the same goes for candy eyes.img_3508

If you are using this, do it for 60 seconds and then 15 second increments. If you are not using this, do it for 30 seconds and then 15 second increments.

if you are using sticks, stick the mallows onto them before dipping in chocolate.

dip them into the chocolate by twisting them over the melted chocolate, making sure to also get the bottom of the mallow.

marshmallows, halloween sprinkles, melting chocolate, parchment paper, (optional) sticks

First, get ready by getting a bowl and putting sprinkles in it. Second get out parchment paper and lay it on the counter. Third, have ready your marshmallow on sticks if you are using sticks.

The chocolate I had was Candiquik and it had a microwavable tray in which you could save the chocolate if you didn’t use all of it. Microwave for the first time 60 seconds and the subsequent times 15 seconds.

(I apologize for all the gifs, BUT THEY ARE SOOOOO FUN TO MAKE!!!)

I will give a gif tutorial in a post after October

Put the marshmallow on the stick

img_3513

Dip the mallow in the chocolate by twisting it over the surface of the pan. be sure to get the bottom as well! Also be careful not to get too much chocolate on the marshmallow. It won’t let the sprinkles stick to it.

img_3515

Twist the chocolate dipped mallow over the sprinkles and I advise that you don’t do the bottom for this step.
