With Halloween right around the corner, you might already have your secret stash of candy hidden away from your roommates and friends. I am all for store-bought candy, but I also like to make some fun Halloween treats for my friends.

These little guys may look complicated, but these Oreo-brownie truffles are super simple to make and your friends will love them. You can also tweak this recipe to make it your own.

For example, you could use halved pretzels dipped in chocolate instead of Oreos or even edible silver sugar, which can be found in the baking aisles of most Walmarts, instead of crushed Oreos on top.

Ingredients:

1 13×9” pan of fudgy brownies, cooled

1/2 cup chocolate frosting

7 Oreo cookies, halved and stuffing removed

11 oz. baking chocolate

2 cups finely crushed Oreos

28 red mini M&Ms

Directions:

Bake brownies and let them cool.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or tin foil) and set aside for now.

Crumble the brownies using your hands and add frosting. Knead until everything is well mixed.

Using a cookie scoop, or your hands, roll the brownie mixture into small balls and place on the baking sheet.

Place halved Oreos into both sides of the brownie to make the bat wings and freeze for approximately two hours.

Remove the baking sheet from the freezer. Put the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and heat, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth.

Dip brownie bats into the chocolate and sprinkle with crushed Oreos. Add mini M&Ms as eyes. Watch these treats fly off the plate.
