These no-bake Halloween treats are so incredibly easy to make, it’s scary! There’s no cooking, no melting candy, and no dipping involved. Best of all, they’re dreadfully delicious!

Twinkies are one of my favorite snacks to turn into Halloween treats. These Frankenstein Twinkies are one of my most popular posts, and these Ghost Twinkies aren’t far behind. They both turned out so spooktacular that I knew I had to make another Halloween Twinkie treat this year!

And the first thing that popped in my head were these faBOOlously fun than a Halloween Bat Twinkies!

How to Make Halloween Bat Twinkies

Making Halloween Bat Twinkies is eerily easy. The Twinkie is the bat’s body, black icing covered in sprinkles make the nose and mouth, and fondant is used to make the ears, wings, and fangs.

Depending on how many you make, it takes about ten minutes to cut out the wings, ears, and fangs. Then the rest of the time is dedicated to putting the Halloween Bat treats together.

The hardest and most time-consuming part is cutting the wings from the fondant, but I’ve made a printable template that makes it much easier and quicker! I made three bat treats, and it took me around thirty to thirty-five minutes.

Halloween Bat Twinkies Ingredients

You only need a few simple ingredients to make these spookily simple Halloween bats. You can find everything you need either on Amazon or at Walmart.

  • Moonberry Twinkies
  • black fondant
  • white fondant
  • black decorating icing
  • sprinkles – black
  • green candy eyes (the middle-sized ones 7/16″)
  • powdered sugar – to keep the fondant from sticking to the rolling pin and cutting board.

Halloween Bat Twinkies Instructions

Begin by unwrapping the Moonberry Twinkies, and then use a small dab of icing to attach the eyes.

Next, use the black icing to draw the mouth and nose, and then cover with black sprinkles before the icing dries. Tip: use a paintbrush to remove excess sprinkles that get stuck down in the crevices of the Twinkie cake.

Roll out enough black fondant to make a set of wings and a pair of ears for each bat. Here is the bat wing template I used to make it easier (tip: use a heavier weight paper to print). Then carefully cut out the wings.

Next, cut out the ears from black fondant. I made mine similar in shape to a teardrop with a pointed top. Be sure to make the bottom part of the drop a bit longer so you can fold it over to form a tab (see picture below). This will make it easier to attach them to the Twinkie.

Now, cut out two tiny, triangular fangs from the white fondant.

This next step is optional, but I do recommend it:

Put all of the fondant parts in the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour. This makes it much easier to work with when attaching the fondant parts to the bat’s bodies.

I also propped up the top part of the ears on the edge of a butter knife handle (the folded tab part was flat-side down against the plate). This helped the ears remain in an upright position once attached to the bats.

The final step in making Halloween Bat Twinkies is to use the icing to attach the fangs, the ears, and the wings.
