Today I’m sharing a super simple Halloween cookie pop idea which is versatile, can be prepared in advance and best of all is NO BAKE!
These Oreo cookie Bat-Pops are the perfect project to get the kids involved with, and these make great trick or treat favours. I used yellow chocolate to give the impression that the bats are flying out across a full moon, but you can customise the colours to suit your occasion.

Tools, Equipment & Ingredients:
1. Lollypop sticks
2. Polystyrene block (to dry / display your pops)
3. Rolling pin
4. Circle cutter – 1.3/4″
5. Circle cutter – 3/4″
6. Oreo cookies
7. Melted white chocolate
8. Melted yellow chocolate or candy melts
9. Soft eating liquorice
10. Red nerds or small red candy
Split your Oreo cookies in half and add a pea-sized dollop of melted white chocolate. Lay your lollypop stick on top of the chocolate and add another pea-sized dollop of white chocolate on top.
Sandwich the two cookies together. Allow the white chocolate ‘glue‘ to completely set.
Roll out your black liquorice using your fondant roller (you can also use black fondant for this). Using your larger circle cutter, cut 2 semi-circles. Using your smaller circle cutter, cut 2 semi-circles from the flat edge to create a bat wing shape.
Roll the remaining black liquorice into a tight ball. Take your 2 red nerds and press firmly into the ball to create red bat eyes.
Tip: If you are having trouble getting your eyes to stick, use a little melted chocolate to glue them on.
Melt your yellow chocolate or candy melts using a microwave, chocolate pot or double boiler.
Dip your Oreo cookie into the melted yellow chocolate, ensuring the cookie is completely covered. Gently tap off any excess.
Before the chocolate sets affix your bat wings, followed immediately by your bat head. Make sure you leave a little space between the wings so the head has some chocolate to stick to.
Hold your cookie pop with the bat-side facing upwards until the chocolate has completely set.
Storage: These will keep for up to a week stored at room temperature in an airtight container. Wrap a cello bag around the cookie to protect your finished product and create an easy to distribute trick or treat favour.
