Ho Ho Bat Treat

We've had bats on our minds ever since the bat flyout. Trevor and I had fun putting together this edible craft. 



Ho Ho Bat Treat

Materials:


  • Ho Ho
  • Almonds
  • Oreo
  • Candy eyes
  • Black edible pearl
  • Peanut butter taffy
  • Pretzel
  • Knife

Steps:


Cut the bottom third off a Ho Ho. Insert almonds into the non-cut end to make the bat's ears. Open the Oreo and scrape out some cream. Use it to attach the candy eyeballs to the bat's face. Do the same to add the black nose to the bat.


Split one side of the Oreo in half to make the wings. Position them under the bat's body. 


Use the peanut butter taffy to make thin cylinders. Wrap them around the pretzel to make the bat's feet. 



Put the pretzel at the top of the plate. Arrange the bat's body so that it rests against the feet.


Here's some more fun bat facts for you!
