No tricks, just treats with these Bat Velvet Oreo Cookies! They are made with a red velvet cake mix dyed black and an orange Oreo cream filling. They make a perfect Halloween treat!
These little Oreo bat-velvet cookies are really fun to make. I think kids will love them. Although, my baby is grown and gone…she is expecting, so I’m getting in some practice now before the baby gets here.
I used a red velvet cake mix and added black food coloring.
I know typically, when cutting out cookies you roll out the dough, cut, and bake.
But, who’s typical around here? Not me!
With these cookies, I rolled, baked, then cut.
Because I hate my cookie dough sticking to the cookie cutters, and you can’t use a lot of flour for these guys because you don’t want your bats to look like they got caught in a snow storm!
Then I played with pretty icing. I piped the icing because it’s pretty.
Then added my favorite food coloring AmeriColor Soft Gel Paste Orange.
If you don’t have that brand on hand, that is ok. You can use a gel food coloring from Wal-mart or most grocery stores.
There’s a cake supply store right down the street from me, it’s always so fun to visit that place. They have AmeriColor gel in every color and I am stocking up on every single one of them, because that’s what we food bloggers do, right?
They also have extracts in every flavor you can imagine….got to stock up on all those too!
So get your red velvet cake mix ready for these Bat-Velvet Oreo cookies! Even if you don’t have kids, make some just because they are so good, pretty and so you can stare at them all day!
Do you ever do that? Have you ever made a dessert that was so pretty you just wanted to stare at it? Sometimes, when I take photo’s of my desserts…..I will sit and stare at it for weeks!
