These EASY Halloween Treats are perfect for that last-minute “oh no we need something for Halloween!” You can use all store-bought products to create the Jack Skellington Halloween Treats, and they still look like a homemade goodie.

White Fudge Ding Dongs, store-bought frosting, simple piping techniques come together to in these Easy Jack Skellington Halloween Treats.

Think You Can’t Make These? WRONG!

Can’t pipe frosting? Don’t have the equipment? NO PROBLEM! You use Betty Crocker Black Gel Frosting to make the face. And if you make a mistake you can simply pick it off with a toothpick and roll on.

How To Draw Jack Skellington’s Face

Wondering if you can make Jack Skellington’s face? I just looked at a picture of him and sketched it with a pencil. Then I drew it on a piece a paper with the gel to see how it flowed. Once I got the hang of it I made a few trial Ding Dongs and got to work!

Remember he’s not perfect! His eyes can either be sloped upward OR downward, or big and round. I think his mouth is the biggest part that people will identify with.

To make his mouth with the Betty Crocker Black Gel. Draw an oversize smile, then use a toothpick to make lines going down from the mouth. And then turn around and make lines going UP at the same place they go down. It makes the mouth look just about perfect.

White Fudge Ding Dongs

These are my new favorite variation of a Ding Dong. White fudge, yellow cake, a cream filling! So much yum. Bonus? They’re like a big mostly flat white canvas you can do pretty much anything on!

You do need to be aware that they are not perfectly flat, they are bumpy so you will have to work around that, otherwise, they’re awesome!
