Vampire Donuts A Quick and Easy Treat For Halloween

Are you looking for a fun treat idea to bring to your kids school or a Halloween party?  My mother-in-law made these for my kids and they absolutely adored them. In fact 6 year old squealed with joy when she opened the lid of the donut box and saw these looking back at her.

I love that anyone can make these, but they turn out so cute every time. We have made them with Krispy Kreme donuts as well as bakery donuts, they all work. You just have to make sure they have a hole in the middle to put the teeth in.  Last year was the first time I made them with chocolate and maple frosting and they still turned out!  SO do not stress if you can not find glazed donuts. In fact I think the colored teeth add a little character to the plate.  My kids call the ones with colored fangs, Monsters and the ones with clear teeth Vampires.

All you need is:

 Vampire Donuts A Quick and Easy Treat For Halloween Directions:

Squish the vampire teeth together and press them into the middle of the donut hole. Pick your eyes, Chocolate chips, M&M’s or Candy Eyes and press them into the donut.  Simple as that you have a treat that is sure be a hit! Really even my 6 year old could make these, and they would still turn out cute!

Oreo Cookie Bats, a fun and easy Halloween treat that is sure to make your family smile!  They are crazy easy to make too, oh and did I mention only 4 ingredients. Gotta love an easy recipe that is this adorable!

And check out our How To Video beloweasy-halloween-treat-ideas-fast-halloween-party-food-recipes-oreo-cookie-bats

Oreo Cookie Bats Easy Halloween Treats

How many of you have a Halloween party every year? Or maybe just watch a spooky movie and make some fun treats to share with your friends and family?  If you are looking for an EASY recipe that is spooky and cute then you are going to love these Oreo Cookie Bats. So easy that my 9 and 11 year old girls totally made these all by themselves.

Ingredients:

Directions

First step, you will want to melt your chocolate chips or melting chocolate. I do this by putting them in the microwave for 15 seconds at a time. Take them out and stir them each time, until smooth and melted.  I melted mine in a Ziploc bag, and then cut the tip off the corner to use it like a piping bag.  Make sure your whole is not too big. This will allow you to have better control of your melted chocolate.

Next you will want to take the filling out of your large Oreo’s. You just need the cookie part not the filling. You will need 1/2 of the cookie (or one whole side) for each bat you make.  Once you take the frosting out of the middle, break each side in half. This will now become the wings to your bat.

Place  the wings of your bat face down on a plate. The rounded edge is the top of the wing and the broken cookie part is the bottom. Add some melted chocolate to the tip of each of these, and put a mini Oreo on the middle. The mini Oreo will become the body of your bat.  These will need to sit, and allow the chocolate to firm up or your bats will fall apart.  If you are in a hurry move them into the freezer and they will firm up, within just a few minutes.

Once the chocolate has cooled and the wings are secured to the bat body. Flip over your bat and add two drops of chocolate to the front and attach the candy eyeballs. Allow for the chocolate to harden and you are ready to eat your Oreo Cookie Bats!

Cool and Creamy Dill Dip

I just love this cool and creamy dill dip. It is so easy to make and is a perfect dip for games, parties, and can even be used as a topping for chicken, fish, pork and more!

Dill Dip Recipe, Finger Food Party Ideas, Cool and Creamy Dill Dip perfect for family reunions, football parties, summer bbq's or just as a lunch snackCool and Creamy Dill Dip

I love this fast and easy recipe for dill dip. It will be the hit of your party or bbq, it is even good as a spread for sandwiches or burgers.  It is best if made the day before the event so the flavors have lots of time to blend. It can also be made last minute if needed.  Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family does.

You will need:

One and half cup Sour Cream
A cup mayonnaise
One tbsp Dill Weed
A single tsp Garlic powder
Single tsp Onion powder
Half tsp Granulated beef bouillon
Salt and pepper  to taste (about 1/4 teaspoon each)

In a small bowl add the dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, beef bouillon and salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. In a medium sized bowl (3 cup bowl) with a lid (the lid helps with easy storage) add mayonnaise and sour cream. Fold together until creamy and smooth. Add in the seasoning mix well. Chill for 1 hour minimum, best if chilled 24 hours. Serve with your favorite Rye Bread, chips, pretzels, bagel chips or veggies. Garnish with a pinch of dill weed just before serving.
