These bat Oreos are a great treat for your own Superhero party, and I hope you find this Oreo Bats tutorial super helpful.
Oh, OK, you can use them for Halloween too. They’d be perfect for a Harvest party at your child’s school as well.
How about a study on bats in your classroom or homeschool pursuits? Wouldn’t they be a fun treat?
We, however, were trying to represent Batman, Spiderman, and Superman in food. I hope you saw the spider lollipop tutorial I gave to represent Spiderman.
Oreo Bats Tutorial
I’m excited to share with you how to make Oreo bats. We did this for my son’s superhero party. They are easy to make and fun for kids to help create.
Please note there is a slight change I would make to this tutorial. Make sure to read it all the way through as I will give my tip at the bottom for making it turn out better. There is also a printable included in this tutorial for the wings.
For our original Superhero party, I added a paper straw to these for a cute display, but I found these to be not super strong.
Therefore, as I was updating this post and adding new pictures and a video tutorial, I made them without paper straws. You can do them either way.

You’ll want to pick out the dark chocolate Wilton Candy Melts. I picked these up at my local craft store.
Candy Melts are really easy to work with. I have a Candy Melt Tutorial you can visit for more information. They can be melted in a double boiler or the microwave. Follow the directions on the back of the package, and you should have no problems.
For this project, you will want to store your chocolate in a squeeze bottle. I boil water, and I keep my squeeze bottle with chocolate in the warm/hot water to keep it from solidifying inside the bottle. I use the dish towel to wipe off the container, as you don’t want to get water in your chocolate.
Oreo Bat Wing Printable
I have provided a bat wing printable for this project. Slide this printable underneath the parchment paper. You will be able to see the printable so you can trace it with the chocolate. All you want to do is trace it with your chocolate and fill it in. This will be done with the squeeze bottle.
If you put your parchment paper on a jellyroll pan, it’s easier to transfer to the refrigerator once you have completed a sheet. You can slide the bat wing printable out so you can do another tray while you set the completed wings in the refrigerator to solidify. They’ll be done in a matter of minutes.
Once solid, you can remove them from the refrigerator and gather up your Oreos, candy eyes, and paper straws (optional). You can see the bottom set of the wing in the picture above is what they look like when I peel them off the parchment paper and flip them over to reveal the flatter side. The flat side is the side I chose to use.
I squeezed the paper straw at the top.
Then, I stuck it into the Oreo. I thought this is what I would have to do to make it work. However, more was needed. The top of the Oreo popped off.
So, I then decided to use my chocolate to act as glue to keep the Oreos, wings and straw together.
I added on the candy google eyes with the dark chocolate acting as glue. That is how I did my bats. They were super cute.
I did love the look, but I wasn’t convinced they were secure and strong enough to withstand kids walking around with them or standing tall for the party and display. That said, I thought they were good enough, and I wasn’t sure how to go back and make them more secure, so I kept them as is. It worked OK.
I stored them all in a plastic storage container until the party.

NOTE: Like I said, there is a change I would make. I ended up not displaying them standing up because I wasn’t convinced they were strong enough to stand up for the party. Therefore, I would adapt this project with a slight change. I would put the Oreo on the stick and then dip the entire Oreo in the dark chocolate, adding the wings and eyes after the dip. I think it would make them stronger for display.
