Oreo sandwich cookies
Brown candy coating or chocolate almond bark
Candy eyeballs (I used these.)
**NOTE: If you cannot find candy eyeballs, you can substitute with mini Oreo cookies and chocolate chips.
Melt the candy coating according to package directions giving special care not to overheat the candy. If the candy coating is overheated, it will be too thick. You can add 2 teaspoons of vegetable shortening to help thin the candy but do not add any other type of liquid as the candy will seize and harden.
Carefully remove the chocolate wafers from the cream center. Cut a chocolate wafer in half to use as wings. Set aside.
Resting a whole chocolate wafer cookie on a fork, spoon candy coating over the cookie and then tap the fork against the side of your bowl to remove excess candy coating.
Insert two candy eyeballs for eyes and candy corn for the beak.
Place a drop of candy coating on the tip of cut chocolate wafer and attach to one side of the back of the cookie. Repeat towards to other side of the back to add the second “wing.”
Allow candy coating to harden before serving. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Placing in the refrigerator may cause the cookie to soften.
