Brownie Bat Truffles

These ultra-rich brownie truffles are a chocolate lover’s dream! Shaped like bats, these intensely chocolate confections feature a fudgy brownie base with chocolate cookie wings, which, after  assembly, are dipped in melted chocolate. Finish the effect with a pair of candy eyes—which will stare back at you in wide-eyed surprise—and enjoy a Halloween treat that’s worth hanging upside down for.

 9 x 13 inch pan of brownies, baked & cooled
 ½ cup Chocolate frosting
 7 Chocolate sandwich cookies
 11 oz Chocolate chips
 2 cups Black sanding sugar
 28 Candy eyes

1

Roughly crumble the brownies with your hands. Mix in the chocolate frosting and gently knead the mixture until well combined. Spoon out 1 tablespoon of brownie mixture and roll into a small ball. Separate the sandwich cookies into their two halves. Remove and discard the stuffing.

2

Using a serrated knife, carefully cut each cookie in half. Insert a cookie half on each side of the brownie ball to create wings. Repeat with the rest of the brownie mixture. Place the brownie balls on a baking sheet and freeze for 2 hours, or until firm.

3

Remove the winged balls from the freezer and let sit for 15 minutes until room temperature. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, then dip the truffles into the chocolate until well covered. Immediately dust with black sanding sugar and decorate with candy eyes while the chocolate is still malleable. Let chocolate harden before serving.
