Making treats for a Halloween Party can be quick and easy. Adding fun decorations to place and bake cookies is a super easy and time saving way to make some not so scary treats. Using candy to make Halloween bats is also quick and easy.
Using candy to make Halloween bats is as easy as slicing some Reese’s Thins and adding some candy eyes.

I don’t have little ones to make treats for any longer, but I can remember when my children were young and how hectic Halloween could be. From parties, to costumes, to trick or treating, there was always a lot going on.
Finding ways to make treats for a party that will save some time helps to cut down on the rush of the day.
Decorated Mummy Cookies and Halloween Candy Bats
Using place and bake sugar cookies is one of the easiest ways to create some Halloween Party Treats. To make mummy cookies, you’ll want to start with a round, flat cookie.
Another time saver is to use store bought frosting instead of making your own and piping it. I used a tub of cream cheese frosting. Open the tub, remove the foil liner and place in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Remove and stir. You want it thin, but not runny.
Begin by adding a dollop of frosting on a cookie. Use a pastry brush to spread the frosting over the cookie, making a combination of straight lines and angled ones.
Add candy eyes to the top of each cookie.
That’s it! It doesn’t get much easier than this. Place the cookies on inverted cupcake liners for a fun display.
For another fun and easy Halloween treat, use Peanut Butter and Dark Chocolate Reese’s Thins.
Slice a piece of the candy in half for the wings. Add a tiny bit of chocolate frosting to the back of each wing. Place a full piece on top of the wings. Finish them off by adding a dot of chocolate frosting to the back of candy eyes and place them on top.
A few years ago, I shared these easy Ghost Cookies. They are made using place and bake cookies, too. Those cookies aren’t made to hold a cutout shape, but in that post, I shared an easy trick on how to get them to look the way your want
Save some of the place and bake sugar cookies and melt some candy melts, drizzle on top and add some festive Halloween sprinkles.
Time saver treats are great for those busy days around Halloween. One of the fun parts of making these is that your little ones could help to decorate them.
