  1. Once you have chosen your favorite chocolate donut holes, split enough Oreo cookies in half to make wings for each bat donut.
  2. Scrape the cream filling from the chocolate wafer cookies, then break the cookie in half to make bat wings.
  3. Place the candy eyes with a little bit of icing onto the donut hole and insert a bat wing on either side of the donut hole making sure not push them in too far. You don’t want to split the donut in half.
  4. Display the tiny bats on a serving tray to serve.
