I was never the arts and crafts girl in our family, that was always K. However, I guess I'm learning! The cats were quick and easy to make + fun for the whole family. Now you also know why I have so much candy lying around the house!
Halloween Black Cats
12 balls of cookie dough
1/3 cup of chocolate chips (or other frosting)
36 M&Ms (12 red, 24 matching colors)
4 Twizzler Pull 'N Peel
48 candy corn (for ears and feet)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Place the balls of cookie dough in a mini muffin tin and bake for 12 minutes (until golden brown). Let cool. Once cool, remove from the tin. Then, melt chocolate chips for 30 seconds until softened (or use a spreadable frosting). Spread over the tops of each mini muffin. Add M&Ms for eyes. Use Pull 'N Peel and break apart into tiny strands for whiskers. Top with a red M&M. Last, add candy corn upside down for feet, and rightside up for ears! I used some leftover melted chocolate as "eyeballs".
Feel free to decorate this anyway you want! I think that's half the fun. Plus, you can make these into whatever kind of creatures you want to! I am all about using up candy so it doesnt sit in the house. John couldn't wait to try one too. When I left the kitchen to check the pictures on my computer, he told me to come back because one had been eaten by a bobcat.
Finishing up my Halloween week on Friday--see you then!
Until the next time my oven is on...
