OWLS


Ingredients:5 Halloween Treats DIY

Directions:

  1. Bake cake according to package instructions. Let cool completely. In a large bowl crumble the cake. Add the frosting and mix together until moistened. Use the cake mixture to make 2 inch balls, place them on a lined baking sheet, and flatten them leaving the top wider than the bottom. Freeze 30 minutes.
  2. Melt candy melts according to instructions. Spread the candy coating evenly over the shaped cake mixture. Let set. Divide the Oreos in half, leaving the white filling on. Dab a small amount of candy coating at the back side of each Oreo half and attach it to the top of the Owl’s head making two eyes. Attach two brown M&M’s to the center of the Oreos. Dip an orange M&M into a little bit of candy coating and place it standing up below the eyes making a beak. Repeat the process with two yellow M&M’s, attaching them at the bottom forming the Owl’s feet.
