Oreo Jack-o’-Lanterns {Last Minute Halloween Treats}

Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up and all of a sudden you remember something you’re supposed to do but haven’t prepared for it?

Or maybe your kid likes to tell you he needs treats for his entire class the next day as you’re kissing him goodnight?

Well, this is a recipe for such an occasion.

Do you need a quick, last-minute Halloween treat? Maybe you need something for a class party or you want to surprise your daughter with a pre-sugar coma sugary sweet treat. Either way, these pumpkins are as easy as…well, as easy as dipping Oreos in chocolate.

Happy Halloween! Will you be like me and eat all your kids good chocolate after they go to bed tonight?

Melt orange and black candy melts according to package directions. Dip Oreos in orange candy and place on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet. Chill to harden. Place the black candy melts in a Ziploc sandwich bag and cut off a corner. Pipe eyes, nose, and mouth onto the hardened orange Oreos. Let dry.
