These simple Chocolate Snack Cake Bats will have your Halloween party Guests flying to get the last one! With only two ingredients these chocolaty treats will be the hit of any party!
Halloween may be in October, but around here we start planning our party in early summer and have been busy discussing everything from the party theme to decor to food. I have so many fun edible craft ideas and exciting giveaways for Halloween this year, that I figured I’d begin sharing them with your now. Today, I have yet another snack cake craft that will be a great addition to any spooky event.
As with most of my other snack cake crafts, these chocolate bats are pretty simple to make using chocolate coated cake rolls, dark cocoa candy melts, candy eyes, and a black food coloring marker, so let’s get started.
Chocolate Snack Cake Bats for Halloween
1 chocolate cake roll per bat (Little Debbie Swiss Rolls, Hostess Ho Ho’s, Drakes Yodels)
black food coloring marker
melted dark confectionery coating/candy melts (about 1 ounce per bat)*
2 candy eyes per bat
Squeezeit Mold painter, disposable pastry bag or zip top bag
parchment paper lined baking sheet
*If you don’t have experience melting confectionery coating/candy melts, see my instructions in my Chocolate Making Tips tutorial (click here.)
Draw some bat wings on a piece of paper allowing enough room for the snack cake in between the wings.
Draw a mouth and fangs on each snack cake using a black food coloring marker. Fill your squeeze bottle, disposable pastry bag or zip top bag with melted confectionery coating. Squeeze a small drop on the back of each candy eye and attach them to the snack cake just above the mouth.
Slide the drawing of your wings under your parchment paper. Pipe the melted confectionery coating/candy melts over the drawing creating your wings. Pipe a strip of candy coating in the middle of the wings then set the snack cake on top of that. Refrigerate until the wings are set, about 3-5 minutes.
Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
