Halloween is right around the corner and I’m starting the month off with some EASY Halloween treats to share with you. My kids love to make treats with me but I only usually get a good 10 minutes before they’re interested in something else. BUT…if I don’t tell them I’m creating something or baking or throwing together a treat I get an EARFUL about how “MOM… I WANTED TO HELP MAKE THESE!!!” So lately, I’ve been saving the quick and easy treats to make with them and then calling them into help finish the end of longer items. If you have kiddos who love to be in the kitchen but you only have a little bit of time, these are Halloween treats to add to your list!
EASY WITCH HAT COOKIES
These are simple to make- you’ll need Hershey kisses, thin Oreos, icing and sprinkles.
First, unwrap the Hershey’s kisses. As many as you’ll need- one for each Oreo/ Witch Hat. Then, put a small circle of icing on top of the cookie. Dip that in a small bowl of sprinkles, pressing down lightly. Next, put some icing on the bottom of the Hershey kiss and push it on top of the cookie- right in the middle. Simple as that!
CHOCOLATE PEANUTBUTTER BROOM STICKS
These are even easier than the witch hats! All you’ll need are pretzel sticks and miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups. Unwrap the Reese’s and set them aside. Then grab a pretzel stick and gently put it into the bottom of the Reese’s. That’s it!
These are probably the most “difficult” of the treats today. You’re going to need candy eyes, Oreos and a little but of icing to attach the eyes.
First, carefully separate the Oreos. Put the ones with the icing on them to the side, you’re going to use those for the body of the bats. Take the side of the Oreo without any icing and break it in half. Those are going to be the bat wings. Press each wing into the side of the Oreo then top it with another frosted Oreo side. Be gentle or else the Oreo will break. You’re creating a double stuffed Oreo bat. Once you have them stuck together, add the eyes. I used a little bit of icing to make sure they stuck to the cookie.
These mummy cookies don’t take long to make but they do take a little time to dry. Parchment paper, mini chocolate chips, Milano cookies (any kind) and melted white chocolate is what you’re going to need for these treats.
Melt the chocolate and dip the cookie into the chocolate, covering as much of the cookie as possible. Let the dipped cookie set on parchment paper and add mini chocolate chip eyes. Repeat this for however many cookies you’d like to make. Then use more melted chocolate to create a mummy look. I used a plastic bag (cutting the corner of the bag to create a piping bag) with melted chocolate to create mine. You could also just use a spoon to drizzle it over the cookies. Remove from parchment paper once chocolate is completely set/ dry. These were probably the my favorite to eat!
