Recipes for Last Minute Halloween Creatures

Have you waited till the last minute, and still need something to serve for dessert on Halloween? 15-Minute Halloween Black Cats, 5-Minute Halloween Caterpillar, or Monstrous Millipede can all be made in a matter of minutes. The caterpillar and millipede can be used as a cute centerpiece for the annual Halloween BOO-ffet. These treats are all no-bake and are made from store-bought fudge stripe cookies, mini chocolate donuts, and Swiss Rolls, as well as canned frosting and Halloween candies. Nothing could be easier!

15-minute Halloween Black Cats

12 Servings

12 Swiss Rolls (Little Debbie) or Ho Ho's (Hostess)
1 cup Chocolate frosting, (canned is fine)
24 Hershey’s Kisses

M & M's Candies
  1. Place a little frosting on the end of each Swiss Roll; place a 2-3" piece of licorice string in the frosting for the tail.
  2. Spread frosting on the top of the other end of the Swiss rolls.
  3. Cut six 1" licorice strings for each cat, and press them in for whiskers.
  4. Unwrap the Kisses and cut each of the rounded parts off so they resemble an ear.
  5. Press into the frosting so they stand up.
  6. Press two M & M's between the whiskers and ears for the eyes.
  7. Let sit at room temperature until the frosting sets.
