I can't believe we are only a week or so away from Halloween! How is that even possible. I am pretty sure it was just the Fourth of July. If you are like me and tend to put off making treats until the last minute, these super fun Nutter Butter Bats are perfect!
Nutter Butter Bats for Halloween!
They don't take long to make and they are just so dang cute! Pair these with the Frankenstein Treats we shared a few weeks ago and you will have a super cute Halloween treat spread! Or you could make up these super cute Nutter Butter Ghosts!
One of my favorite things about Halloween is all of the fun sweet treats and recipes that can be made for Halloween Parties or snacks.
Taking regular sweets and jazzing them up to fit Halloween. We are working on a ton of new Halloween Recipes for this year.
My counter is covered in candy eyeballs, edible blood, Halloween Candy, Candy Corn, and other fun treats.
Super fun Nutter Butter Bats for Halloween!
Ingredients & Supplies
- Dark brown candy melts (You can order them from Amazon here)
- Nutter Butter cookies
- Candy Eyes (You can order them from Amazon here)
- Miniature Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
- White Decorating Gel
- Parchment Paper
Candy Dipper - If you want to use something to dip the Nutter Butters into the candy melt and remove them easily.
Large Mixing Bowl - Deep enough you can melt the chocolate in the bowl and submerge the entire Nutter Butter Cookie in the chocolate.
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to help make it easier to remove the brownie cookies. They also make clean-up a breeze.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. I am always fearful I am going to move the pan and the Nutter Butter Bats are going to slide right off if I don't use a baking sheet with edges.
