Equipment

  • Wooden board or serving platter
  • Posable skeleton

Ingredients

For the Monster Treats

For the Witch Fingers

For the Ghosts

For the Bats

  • 8 Mini Reese's Cups
  • 8 Oreo Thins
  • candy eyes

Additional Candy

  • 18 ounces Smarties
  • 16 ounces red licorice
  • 15 ounces Assorted Hershey's Candy
  • 28 ounces sour gummy worms
  • 40 ounces candy corn

Instructions

  • Make the Monster Treats by melting the chocolate wafers (see post for melting instructions) and mix in the purple food dye. Dip one side of the Rice Krispie Treat into the chocolate. Place the candy eyes onto the chocolate. Place the sprinkles on the top to look like hair. Set on a pan lined with parchment paper and allow the chocolate to set.
  • To make the Witch Fingers, melt the chocolate wafers and mix in the green food dye. Place the melted chocolate into a tall cup. Dip each pretzel rod in the chocolate. Place a sliced almond on the tip to look like a fingernail. Set on a pan lined with parchment paper and allow the chocolate to set.
  • To make the Ghosts, melt the chocolate wafers. Dip one side of the Nutter Butter cookie into the chocolate. Place two mini chocolate chips to look like eyes and one to look like a mouth. Set on a pan lined with parchment paper and allow the chocolate to set.
  • To make the Bats, unwrap the Mini Reese's Cups but don't take off the inner lining. Open each Oreo and scrape the creme filling out. Do not discard. Break each cookie in half to make the wings. Spread some of the creme filling onto the Reese's Cup. Attach the cookie halves to the Reese's Cup using the creme filling. Spread some creme filling where the wings touch and use that to attach the eyes.
  • Start out by placing the skeleton diagonally across the board. Stuff the rib cage with candy. Fill in all the spaces in and around the skeleton with candy.
  • Next, place the larger chocolate decorated treats around the board. Then fill in any open spaces with more candy.
