Copycat Reese's Bats Are the Classic Treat Your Halloween Party Is Waiting For!

Print Recipe

Reese cups are my absolute fav! I started making them from scratch at home and now for every special occasion I make a whole bunch for everyone to enjoy! Of course Halloween needs a spooky cup or even bat?!

Same smooth peanut butter inside as the classic reese cup and a nice crisp chocolatey coating on the outside. The only difference is that they're bats!


  • 2 cups peanut butter
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 12 ounces dark chocolate candy melts
  • Bat cookie cutter


  1. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium pot, mix together the peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and 1 cup powdered sugar over medium heat.
  3. Heat until completely melted and beginning to bubble, stirring constantly, then remove from heat.
  4. Add the remaining powdered sugar a little at a time, stirring after each addition, until completely combined, then set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.
  5. Once mixture has cooled, sprinkle a little bit of powdered sugar on a flat work surface and roll out the peanut butter mixture until ¼-inch thick. Cut out bats from the peanut butter mixture using the cookie cutter, then place on the lined baking sheet.
  6. Once all bats have been cut out and placed on the baking sheet, freeze 1 hour, or until they are solid.
  7. Melt chocolate in the microwave on 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until fully melted and smooth.
  8. Using a fork if desired, dunk each bat in the melted chocolate, then place back onto the lined baking sheet.
  9. Place back into the freezer to set the chocolate, about 30 minutes-1 hour. Eat as desired, storing any extras in the freezer. Thaw a little before serving or serve frozen. Enjoy!
