An annual Halloween tradition in our house is making “bugs”….I can’t remember when this tradition began, but it just isn’t Halloween without these little guys. So fun to make, especially with children, no matter how old they are. You will need a few supplies:

Nilla Wafer Cookies
M & M’s
Small Chocolate Bars, I used Snickers, Peanut Butter Cups and Hershey’s Bliss
Better Crocker tube icing, black and purple
Better Crocker tube gel’s, orange, green, blue, yellow, red, etc….
Optional: Halloween colored sprinkles & candies for decorating tray

Use the tube icing to attach the bodies (small chocolate bars) to the Nilla Wafer Cookies
Place a small amount of icing in front to attach eyes (M&M’s)
Using gel’s for decorating bugs, legs, eyeballs, etc.

I purchased a small amount of “inside outside carpet” from my local Lowe’s and cut it to fit my tray to assimilate grass….Have fun and enjoy, perhaps this will become your families annual Halloween tradition as well.
