Let's get started!
- Place candy canes inside a plastic bag and use a hammer to smash them until they are fully crushed.
- Melt white chocolate on medium heat using the double boiler method. This is just a glass bowl on top of a pot filled with a little water.
- Once melted, add peppermint oil and a few drops of blue food coloring and mix well. Turn off the stove and mix in peppermint.
- Pour the mixture into the finger molds, making sure to fill each mold up to the very tippy top! Chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
- Sprinkle some crushed peppermint onto a white serving dish and arrange your creepy fingers nicely on the dish.
- Use a hand mixer to beat butter, sweetened, condensed milk, and powdered sugar until well combined. Add in coconut flakes and mix again.
- Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper, leaving room between each scoop. Chill in the fridge for an hour.
- Melt and combine half dark green and half light green candy melts into a decorating bag. Cut a little opening at the tip of the bag and then fill the bone molds about half way full.
- Once filled, give the mold a few taps on the counter to make the candy melts lay flat. Chill in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Time to decorate!
- Melt purple candy melts and dip the chilled bon bons in the melt, letting the excess candy drip off.
- Place the bon bons back onto the lined baking sheet.
- Cut each chilled bone mold in half at a little bit of an angle so that they sit nicely on the bon bons.
- Use a #2 tip to pipe green candy melt onto the cut end of each bone and then stick it on the top of the bon bon. Gently press down for about 20 to 30 seconds so that the bone stays in place.
- Once the bones are set, place each bon bon into a mini cupcake liner.
- In a large pot on medium heat, melt butter completely and then add marshmallows. Stir frequently
- Add in 3 drops of green food coloring, and one drop of brown. Mix it together until you get a creepy green color.
- Remove the pot from stove and fold in puffed rice cereal until well combined.
- Scoop the crispies into a prepared glass pan. Be careful because the pot will be very hot! Lay a large piece of wax paper over the crispies and then press down to spread them out flat in the pan.
- Set the crispies aside to cool for about 30 minutes to an hour.
Time to decorate!
- Print off Bat Mouth Template and then tape a piece of wax paper over the template. Use a decorating bag with a #2 tip to trace black candy melt over the template.
- Use a cookie cutter to cut out the bat shapes.
- Pipe a dab of black candy melt onto the treats and then stick the mouths onto the front of the bat.
- Cut some of the jelly beans in half and dab a small amount of black candy melt onto the inside. Place them above the mouth. These will be the eyeballs of the bat! Pipe on some eyebrows and pupils.
- With white frosting, use #1 tip to pipe on some sharp teeth in the mouth.
- TaDa! You’re all finished with your creepy treats!
