anyhoo, lets have a little halloween treat anyway! these were supposed to be for the now defunct halloween party at emily's school...
THIS as my inspiration for the cupcakes! instead of piping a swirl, i just piped a "blob"(yes friends, that is a technical term!)onto mini cupcakes. after the big dunk(and don't be a afraid of the dunk, go for it! that swiss butter cream isn't going anywhere!) i let the chocolate set up for a few minutes and threw on a dash of chocolate sprinkles, then smooshed the eyes on(yes, very specific terms here!) for the wings, i used the same chocolate i dunked the cupcakes in a zippie bag to free hand the wing shapes. this took me right back to coloring in elementary school!! so fun! you can throw them in the frige to set up faster(or if you have a very cold laundry room, that works too!) if the chocolate on the bat bodies sets up too much, the wings will be hard to push in, and even break. so...use a paring knife to slice a slit into their little noggins to help! then let them finish setting up! cute and delicious!! oh, and by the way, i found the candy eyes at walmart in the baking section!
