  • 16 oz green candy coating
  • Approx 3 Cups Oreo Cookies, smashed into large & small pieces
  • Gummy worms, Halloween candies & sprinkles in your favorite Halloween colors
You’ll also need:
9-in. by 13-in. pan
Parchment paper
 
1. Line baking sheet with parchment paper allowing about an inch to extend above the rim on two sides for lifting.
2. Microwave candy coating in a heatproof bowl on medium. Heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until melted and smooth. 
3. Stir in most of the Oreo cookie pieces, reserving about a cup of the cookie dust/crumbs for the top
4. Pour candy coating into baking sheet. Working quickly, spread into an even layer. 
4. Quickly add the gummy worms by sticking them into the candy coating. You can cut some up as well. Leave creepy crawly pieces sticking out.
