Spooky Wooky Bats

This year’s Halloween weekend went like this: I sloppily carved a moustache into my mini pumpkin, I ripped my tights in anticipation, I pondered skullifying my face with a black eyebrow pencil, and then I just stayed home and wrote until the small hours. Oops! I will have to protest to my friends that I was there at those parties, just as a spectre.

Good news however. The calendar has only just flipped to Monday the 31st of October and there’s still time for me yet to get into the spirit. I just found this recipe for those cute little chocolate bats to make later this evening. Happy Halloween!

Halloween Bats

Donna Hay’s Marshmallow Vampire Bats
{From the NZ Herald}

To make twenty of the sugar bloodsuckers:

20 white marshmallows
200g dark chocolate, melted
20 small chocolate-coated biscuits, halved
40 small white chocolate melts

Dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate and place each on 2 halves of the chocolate biscuits to create the bat bodies. Place on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Place 2 white chocolate melts on each bat to make eyes. Refrigerate until set.
