These were adorable and the hit of the Halloween party. I made them first using a generic cookie (Shurfine brand) that had the necessary hole in the middle (makes the bat wing shape on the bottom of the wing). They were so popular, my daughter asked me to make them the following week for her class. This time I picked up the name brand cookie at Walmart. It was a mistake! The cookies kept breaking, no matter how gently I sawed them with a serated knife. It was very annoying and time consuming. I will make these again and again but I will not buy the name brand cookie with the holes in the middle. Definitely not worth it. Also, it looks super cute to use the striped kisses (Hugs). The black and white stripes look great. I put the red gel directly on the white stripe so they stood out much better. The translucensy of the red eyes was perfect against the white background. You definitely have to use red gel to get the best look. Also, be sure to put the cookies straight in at a 90 degree angle. A couple of times, I accidently slanted the cookie at a more upward angle and it made a huge gap between the head and the wings. Didn't look very good. Other than that, these cookies looked great. Thanks for the great idea!
