Hello readers! I was keep browsing adorable dessert creations all over the internet and am amazed at what people come up with. When I was at the store recently I saw the black candy melts and knew I wanted to do something with them. Then I found orange heart sprinkles. And the idea for Halloween Oreo Cats was born. It would be fun to make and deliver them to friends and neighbors. It’s also something that you could do with your kids as an interesting Halloween activity. They will have a blast decorating the cats and then eating them.
The kitties are pretty easy to put together, using just a few ingredients.
- Oreos (whatever kind you want!) – 14.3 oz
- Black candy melts – 24oz
- Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips – 11.5oz
- Edible googly eyes – 1 package
- Twizzlers Peel and Pull Mixed Berry (other licorice can be used but I liked this best!) – 12oz
- Orange heart sprinkles – proper amount
Line a cookie sheet with wax paper and spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Unravel purple from the Twizzlers peel aparts and cut into 1/2 inch strands for whiskers, set aside.
Melt the black candy melts according to directions written on the package.
Dip Oreo cookies into melted black candy and lay them on wax paper.
Before the melted candy dries, add 2 edible googly eyes, 2- 3 whiskers on each side of the face, 1 orange heart sprinkle as nose and 2 milk chocolate chips for the ears on top.
Let dry and they’re ready to serve!
After making the Halloween Oreo Cookie Cats, you can simply pack them into a cellophane bag and attach the printable below. It’s made to fold in half and then staple. This could be used for your kids’ classroom treat as well and your child can write his/her name at the bottom.
