Bat Oreo Truffle Tutorial

I have seen copies around the web. But let me tell you… these little cuties originated right here. They are my pride and joy. Super adorable and perfect for a spooky treat! If you are local you may have seen me make these on the local news! They have invited me back several times to share the easy tutorial. Why?

Because it is SO EASY. Follow the tutorial below and find out how to make these:

All of the magic starts with my Oreo Truffles. Whip up a batch and we can get started!

Alternatively, you could use cake balls. I prefer the truffle because you only need two ingredients and a blender. You can have them ready in under 10 minutes. And they taste amazing.

Once you have those beauties rolled and ready for the fridge it is time to gather materials.

Ingredients to Make Halloween Truffles:

You will need:

  • Brown or Chocolate Candy Melts- Melted according to the package directions.
  • Edible eyes- Can be found in craft stores or the baking aisle of most grocers. 
  • Mini chocolate chips- These will be the cute little ears.
  • Wax paper- or parchment. Wax paper is easier to see through to make your wings.
  • Ziploc bag- Or a pipping bag. Something to help you pipe the chocolate into the wing shape.

How to make Oreo truffle bats:

  1. Draw out a few small wing shapes onto a piece of paper.
  2. Lay a piece of wax paper over the top of your stencil and tape it to the table top.
  3. Add a small handful of candy melts to a sandwich bag. Microwave in 15 second intervals until fully melted.
  4. Snip a small corner off of the bag and pipe the chocolate following the stencil.
  5. Allow to set for a few minutes, or speed up the process by gently placing them into the fridge.

Once your wings have set and the truffles have cooled it is time to move to the next step. Melt the remaining candy melts in a deep but small bowl.

Working quickly, dip one truffle into the chocolate. Make sure you cover it completely. Transfer to a sheet of wax paper. Place two wings, eyes, and mini chocolate chips in their correct spots.

Let sit until the chocolate has set.
And that, my friends, is the gist of it. Repeat with your remaining truffles.

Tips for working with chocolate

  1. Work quickly. Lay out all of your toppings and be ready to add them to the truffle fast.
  2. Reheat as needed. If you notice that your chocolate is starting to thicken you will need to heat it again. Place it in the microwave for 15 seconds and stir well.
  3. Make the wings thicker to avoid them breaking when you place them onto the truffles. 
  4. Run your hands under ice cold water and quickly dry. This will help give you a few more seconds to handle the chocolate without it melting to your warm fingers.

Almost. These would be great to hand out to teachers, friends, family… Anyone that you might want to pass out a treat that is just extra special. Who can go wrong with Oreo’s?

Hi there!

I am planning to make these for the office, but I was wondering if the little bats can sit out at room temperature? Not sure if the truffle/dough will get too soft, or maybe the chocolate coating and/or wings will melt/fall off? Do they need to stay stored in the fridge once they are all decorated and ready? Thank you
