Chocolate Covered Fruit Crisps Halloween Critters
- Colored Melting Chocolate
- Desired Fruit Crisps Flavor (We used apple, strawberry & banana)
- Eyeball Sprinkles and/or Halloween colored sprinkles
|Grab a baking sheet, plate or other flat surface and place a sheet of wax paper on top. This is where the fun will take place.|
|Be creative and layout the fruit crisps into different shapes on top of the wax paper. For example, we used apple crisps for bat wings and bananas for a bat body.|
|Next, place the melting chocolate into a microwave safe bowl and melt for about 15-20 seconds, then stir. Repeat until the chocolate is almost all melted and stir until any leftover chocolate chunks disappear. |
**We used a 1/2 cup of melting chocolate. Add more or less depending on your preference.
|Use your hands or a fork and dip the fruit crisps into the chocolate until covered. Place back onto the wax paper. If you need to attach any parts use a dab of chocolate after all the pieces are coated. (We did this to make sure the bat wings stayed attached to the bat body).|
|Lastly, before the chocolate hardens, place any decorations on such as sprinkle eyes.|
|Repeat these steps until you've made a bunch of cute & creepy critters!|
|Let your creations air dry for 20-30 minutes or place in the fridge/freezer for 20 minutes. Gently peel them off the wax paper. Enjoy!|
