Mrs. Freshley’s

Make this fun — and easy — Halloween treat for parties or trick-or-treaters.



Mrs. Freshley’s Peanut Butter Flavored Swiss Rolls

Popsicle sticks

Wax Paper

1 package of chocolate candy bark or candy melts

Piping bag

Large yogurt chips




  1. Insert one Popsicle stick in each of the peanut butter Swiss Rolls and place them in the freezer to harden.
  2. Draw a stencil of the wing shape on a piece of wax paper; be sure to make the wings wide enough to accommodate the Swiss Roll.
  3. Melt a portion of the chocolate candy bark or melts and pour the mixture into a piping back with a small tip.
  4. Pipe out the outline of the bat wings. In the center of the wings, pipe a chocolate rectangle approximately the size of the Swiss Roll.
  5. Place the Swiss Roll on the chocolate rectangle and put it in the freezer to harden for 3-5 minutes.
  6. Remove the bats from the freezer and use a little chocolate to place the large yogurt chips on the bat for eyes. Put the pointed side of the chip into the Swiss Rolls. Use a toothpick and chocolate candy bark to apply pupils on the flat side of the yogurt chips to finish the eyes.
  7. Use the chocolate candy bark mixture to pipe the mouth and fangs.
  8. Allow the Batty Pops to set before you serve them.
