These super cute owl snacks are so easy to make that they are ready in 5 minutes. They are the perfect fall snack or fall activity to do with kids. To make these adorable fall snacks you only need 5 ingredients and yes they come together in just a few minutes.
While other families watch the leaves turning all shades of yellow and red and enjoy sweater weather, here in Florida it’s up to us to create that fall mood by bringing into our lives everything fall-themed, from pumpkin spice everything and fall crafts to fun autumn snacks. So bring on the pumpkins, the fake fall leaves, the owls and foxes, and all fall-related things! We’re here for it!
This week I wanted to incorporate some delicious and fun fall snacks into our day and that is how these cute owl mini muffins where born! We made them using Entenmann’s Little Bites® Chocolate Chip muffins because we always have some at home. Entenmann’s Little Bites® snacks are one of my kid’s favorite school snacks and now that we’re distance learning at home school snacks can get a bit of a fun upgrade. Owl mini muffins as a school snack, why the heck not?

I like Entenmann’s Little Bites® snacks because they don’t have any high fructose corn syrup and contain zero (0) grams of trans fat per serving. Entenmann’s Little Bites® muffins are ideal for taking on the go and they are also the perfect portion. They are baked soft & moist using real ingredients like strawberries, blueberries, and bananas and my kids love the taste and the moist texture. And with more than 8 varieties, from the classic Entenmann’s Little Bites® Chocolate Chip muffins, Entenmann’s Little Bites® Fudge Brownies and Entenmann’s Little Bites® Blueberry muffins to flavors like Entenmann’s Little Bites® Pumpkin Muffins and Entenmann’s Little Bites® Party Cake muffins there’s a flavor to fit every snacking occasion.
How to make cute owl snacks
You can change these up a bit depending on what you have on hand. You can also make your chocolate frosting at home instead of using store-bought. For the eyes, we had some candy eyes at home but you can also use brown candy-coated chocolates for the eyes or chocolate chips.
- 8 Entenmann’s Little Bites® Chocolate Chip muffins (two pouches of snacks) or you can also use Entenmann’s Little Bites® Fudge Brownies
- 1/4 cup tablespoons of chocolate frosting or chocolate ganache
- 16 small sugar or vanilla cookies
- 16 brown candy covered chocolates
- 8 orange candy covered chocolates
- 8 pairs of candy eyes
- Start by putting a smooth layer of chocolate frosting on the top of each of the Entenmann’s Little Bites® Chocolate Chip muffins.
- Place two vanilla cookies on each mini muffin, pressing lightly into the frosting so they will remain in place.
- Put a bit of chocolate frosting on the back of the candy eyes and place an eye on top of each vanilla cookie.
- Insert one orange candy-covered chocolate below the cookies to make the beak.
- Place two brown candy-covered chocolates above the cookies as “eyebrows”.
And there you have it! That’s it. So easy!!
I’m not sure what was more fun, making these or eating them. My kids sure loved this as a fall activity and as a great fall snack. I think they have a new fall snack for sure!
