Reese's Chocolate Bat Cookies

You don't have to wait until dark to enjoy these chocolate flying creatures. Everyone's favorite peanut butter cup sits atop homemade chocolate cookie for some sweet 'n spooky fun. The decoration is simple enough that even young chefs can easily master it.  


  • 1 ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ sticks unsalted butter, soft
  • 1 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated 
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 -12 ounce bag miniature Reese’s cups
  • 1 box small Candy eye balls
  • 1 bag dark melting wafers or candy melts
  • 24 Orange or red nonpareils (for bat nose- optional) 



  1. Combine and sift together flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. With hand held mixer or stand mixer, beat soft butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract. Add sifted ingredients and mix until dough forms. Do not overmix.
  3. Press dough 1/4-inch thick on a cookie sheet lined with plastic food film and place in refrigerator or freezer until firm enough to be rolled, about 20-45 minutes.
  4. Roll dough about 1/8-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut using a bat cookie cutter and place on parchment lined cookies sheets about 1/4-inch apart.
  5. Before placing in the oven, ensure that all flour traces are brushed off cookies to avoid any streaks.
  6. Place in oven and bake until surface is set but is still soft, about 10-11 minutes.
  7. Let cool completely before proceeding.
  8. Melt chocolate wafers according to package directions. Fill a small piping bag with a # 2 pastry tip or use a small paper cone with a small amount of the tip cut off. Pipe an outline of wings area. Once outline has set, flood area with additional chocolate.
  9. “Glue” Reese's peanut butter cup onto the cookie using melted chocolate.  Glue on eyes and nose with chocolate as well.
