1 & 2. Spoon some melted chocolate into a small ziplock bag, snip off an end, and squeeze about 1 teaspoon on an Oreo. Place a Hershey Kiss chocolate on it, pressing gently for the chocolate to come around the edges.
Start by thoroughly washing and drying the clementines, ensuring they are completely moisture-free. Next, remove the stem ends to provide stability and prevent any wobbling.
3 & 4. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave. Using a toothpick, place a dab of melted chocolate on the back of two candy eyeballs and stick to the clementine.
5. Squeeze more melted chocolate on top of the clementine and then carefully stick a prepared Oreo hat on top, pressing gently to adhere.
Tip: Allow the prepared Halloween clementines to sit for a minimum of two hours, giving the chocolate enough time to solidify before serving.

More fun Halloween treats that your kids will love:
- Rinse clementines and towel dry very well to remove all moisture and remove any attached stem ends.
- Melt chocolate chips in microwave, until smooth and melted. Transfer about a tablespoon into a small bowl and then remaining into a small piping bag or zip lock bag and snip off the corner.
- Using the toothpick, place a small dab of melted chocolate on the back of candy eye balls and stick two eyes on each clementine to make a face (refer pictures if needed).
