HELPFUL TIPS NOT MENTIONED: I thought I'd mention the problems I've had the first time around so they can turn out perfect for you:) Like use a sharp knife in a sawing motion along the whole width of cookie while cutting. Go SLOWLY! That way you don't run out or waste any cookies because they weren't cut down the middle correctly! Make sure you don't get the generic brand cookies either b/c they don't have a hole in the middle making the shape you need! Also it helps to have the hersheys unwrapped and cookies cut for the 24 cupcakes (or however many - that's just the amount a normal cake batter makes). That way you can do them all at once which means less handling (messing up your wings) and you can stick in the fridge! I also like sticking the wings INTO the cupcake and straight up followed by the hershey kiss in front of it so the kiss doesn't rise up (tips tends to rise up if you angle it at all instead of putting them flat)! Everyone at my husband's office loved them and thought I was sooo creative. hehehehe Such a great idea that doesn't take too much work. Made these along with the spider cupcakes on this site!
THESE CUPCAKES WERE A BIG HIT AT MY SON'S KINDERGARTEN HALLOWEEN PARTY. I WILL USE A YELLOW CAKE BATTER NEXT TIME AS MY WHOLE CUPCAKE WAS CHOCOLATE. THIS RECIPE WAS VERY EASY AND NOT VERY TIME CONSUMING.
I made these for my daughters Halloween party at school and they were a big hit! I bought white icing and colored it orange to make them look more Halloween-y. They were sooo easy to make and came out so cute. I made the mistake of buying Wal-Mart brand cookies instead of Keebler and when I got them home I realized they didn't have the hole in the middle which gives the wings their bat shape.
I made these for my ten year old daughter's class Halloween party... when her older sister saw them she begged me to make them for her class too! They were so easy to make and so cute -- the teachers and office staff at the schools raved about how cute they were! I bought plain chocolate wafer cookies (Nabisco) for the wings but did use the Hersey's kiss for the head/face and red gel for the eyes. The gel can be dotted on much easier than tube icing plus the gel has a glow which makes the eyes appear "scary". This recipe will be a Halloween tradition from now on.
I agree that there needs to be a picture or better instructions. I tried everything to make these look like bats. Several people told me they looked like turkeys so maybe I'll make them for Thanksgiving.
