Every Halloween party needs to feature easy Halloween cookies that can be conjured up with minimal hands-on time yet are still fun and festive. And these deliciously spooky Bat Cookies certainly fit the bill. #spookyeasyfun

And the best part? No baking required. Yeap, these ghoulish cookies only need 4 ingredients and about 15 minutes to make. Plus you start with affordable store-bought ingredients which make these even easier. That’s right friends, Peanut butter cups and Oreos are a total lifesaver in this recipe.

How To Make Bat Cookies

  1. Lay the peanut butter cups out on a plate or tray.
  2. Separate the Oreo cookies and remove the icing from between them before cutting the cookies in half to form the wings.
  3. Put a small amount of icing on the back of the Oreos and stick them onto the Peanut Butter cups to form your bat shape.
  4. Dab a little icing on the bottom of each candy eyeball, stick two onto each of the cookie cups and serve your ghoulish treat.

Recipe Tips

  • If you prefer, you can use other chocolate-based cookies as your base.
  • Slightly twist to easily separate the cookies.
  • Some cookies will crumble when being separated and cut, which is why I have suggested having some extra cookies at the ready.
  • Double or triple the recipe when serving a crowd.

Delicious Variations

  • Vary the cookies – you can use other chocolate cookies to you preference.
  • Add sprinkles – Accessories these with some festive colored sprinkles or shaped sprinkles like a bat, cat, pumpkin, etc.
  • Decorate with colored frosting – there’s no reason your bats can’t have a bright and colorful stripy look.
