Halloween-themed candy doesn't have to be nothing but processed sugar and chocolate to taste great, although it certainly doesn't hurt. Fruit can add a slightly different spin on the Halloween holiday, like in these blackberry bat wings, which are basically a homemade fruit leather or fruit roll-up cut in wing-like shapes. The ingredients and cooking process make it simple and kids and adults will both love them. You can use the recipe outside the Halloween holiday to make homemade fruit leather.

Blackberry Bat Wings Ingredients
Blackberries, 4 pints

3) Place a Silpat or waxed paper on a sheet pan. Spread reduced puree on the covered portion of the sheet pan.
4) Bake on sheet pan at 200 degrees for 1-3 hours until the top is almost not sticky to the touch.
5) Allow to cool for 3 hours. Tear or trim with a parring knife into jagged shapes resembling bat wings.

Homemade Peanut Butter Cup recipe Peanut butter cups have long been my favorite Halloween candy. I'd trade other candies for a Reese's any day. Or I would have until we made these this year. Homemade peanut butter cups beat anything you can buy at the store hands down. And they're incredibly easy to make.

Peanut Butter Cup Ingredients
1 cup peanut butter (all natural)
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup ground Graham crackers
8oz bitter-sweet baking chocolate
8oz semi-sweet baking chocolate

Preparation
Making Peanut Butter Cups1) Crush Graham crackers in a gallon storage bag with a rolling pin.
2) In a mixer with a paddle attachment mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and crushed Graham crackers, mixing until you get a consistency that rolls well.
3) Roll peanut butter mixture into balls and flatten. Each disk should be about the size of 4 stacked quarters. Store these on parchment paper in the freezer until ready for use.
4) Boil water in a medium sacue pan filled three quarters full. Place a metal mixing bowl on top of the sauce pan as a double-boiler. Break chocolate into squares to melt in mixing bowl. Melt chocolate, then remove the bowl from the sauce pan.
5) Stir the chocolate until it's cooled to approximately body temperature.
6) Pour a tablespoon of chocolate into a cupcake foil, tilting the foil so that the chocolate coats the sides up about 3/8-inch. When you get a dozen of these, place a cupcake baking sheet in the freezer to cool until firm. Repeat with a second baking sheet of cupcake foils.
7) After chilling, place a peanut butter disk in the center of each foil, then cover the disks with the remainder of the chocolate. Once you cover the full cupcake sheet with chocolate, place it back in the freezer until firm. Chill until serving.
