Looking for a Halloween treat that honors our favorite nocturnal creature? To celebrate the positive contributions bats make to our Halloween foods we invite you to get involved with some cooking fun!
Help us spread the word about bats and food during this year’s Bat Week (Oct. 24–31) by making one of BCI’s batty recipes (see below) — or better yet, invent one of your own based on our list of bat related ingredients—and then sharing the results with us and fellow bat lovers through social media.
After you prepare your treats, simply snap a photo of your creation with our batty food label and post it, on Facebook, Twitter and/or Pinterest! Be sure to tag BCI and use the hashtag “#battytreat”.
No bats were harmed in the making of these recipes.
