Candy Bar Bats DIY
Anyone else love Halloween time?!?! Something about it makes me want to get crafty in the kitchen! Today we are sharing a fun way to use your mini candy bars to make a cute halloween themed bat! Whether you have a halloween party coming up, or want a fun way to use those left over candy bars, this is it!
Piping Bag or Plastic Sandwich Size Bag
Start off by melting the chocolate. Read the directions on the chocolate packaging for the best melting instructions. I have found it helpful to add a spoonful of Crisco to the chocolate so it makes the chocolate thinner. Also make sure to not stir your chocolate with metal and only use plastic (not a plastic spoon that will melt but like a spatula). The metal with mess with the constancy of the chocolate. I like to use a chocolate melter that makes melting chocolate super simple! You can also use a pot on the stove top as well.
While the chocolate is melting, line your baking sheet with wax paper or a Silplat. Next, lay out the candy bars on the Siplat so there is space in between them for wings and ears.
When the chocolate has finished melting, add it to a piping bag. If you are using a small sandwich bag, make sure the chocolate is cooled off a little bit before you put it in the bag so it doesn’t melt the plastic. Once the chocolate is in the bag, cut the tip off the piping bag so there is an opening for the chocolate to come out. With the chocolate draw on your bat wings and ears. Make sure to add chocolate directly onto the candy bar edges so the bat wings and ears will stick after they cool off.
Put your finished bats in the fridge to cool off. After the bats have been cooled, peel them off the Silplat. Pull them off slowly so your bats do not break. If you happen to have a wing snap, use any left over chocolate to reconnect the bat.
Now its time to enjoy! Put your cute bats on a plate and add them to your Halloween spread! Enjoy!
