Halloween Treats

Halloween isn't celebrated as widely in Australia as it is in the USA, but here at The Bride's Diary we can't resist any opportunity for a party! These super-cute Batty Bites by Better Homes and Gardens may not have your guests screaming in terror, but they will certainly set a great Halloween atmosphere! 
• chocolate-flavored breakfast pastries
• melted semisweet chocolate
• decorative sprinkles
• chocolate, cream-filled sandwich cookies
• almonds, sunflower kernels, and/or pumpkin seeds
• miniature chocolate pieces


• For a large bat, cut a chocolate-flavored breakfast pastry in half diagonally. For a small bat, cut a chocolate-flavored breakfast pastry in half diagonally and then in half again, making four triangles.

• To make a bat, carefully dip one side of two pastry triangles into melted semisweet chocolate. Place triangles, chocolate sides up, on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Embellish triangle wings with decorative sprinkles.

• Dip a chocolate, cream-filled sandwich cookie (large for a large bat and miniature for a small bat) into melted chocolate. Place a cookie body on top of the triangle wings. Add eyes of almonds, sunflower kernels, and/or pumpkin seeds. For the almond eyes, use miniature chocolate pieces as pupils. Chill until chocolate is set.
