Ghost Halloween Treats
Looking for Halloween craft ideas?
These are so yummy, so easy to make and so Halloween-y!
Guess what they are made out of?
Use a double boiler and melt white chocolate wafers.
While your wafers are melting, use lollipop sticks that you can purchase at your local cake supply or craft store, and insert the sticks into large marshmallows.
Place the marshmallows on a cookie sheet covered in foil, wax paper or parchment paper. This is going to come in handy after we dip the marshmallows.
Once your wafers have melted and the sauce is smooth, dip the marshmallow in the melted mixture.
Submerge it completely.
Use a rubber spatula if needed to generously coat in the melted wafers onto the marshmallow.
Dip it good…. it will look like this when you’re done:
Line the dipped marshmallows on the cookie sheet and allow them to cool and set. I like to leave them alone for an hour…. if my kids will allow it.
(It really is important that they cool completely before you lift them off the drying tray. Otherwise, the top of the ghost’s head will not be smooth. You’ll see what I mean in some of the other pictures.)
Now you’ll melt some wafers that you’ll use to create their faces. I used Spooky Green, which is a special color Wilton is offering for the Halloween season.
Once melted spoon the mixture into a decorating bag like you would icing. Use a tip that will draw fine lines.
Use a ziplock bag (like I did) and simply cut a small sliver off the corner of the bag to create a decorating tip.
While the wafer mixture is still super warm and melted create a face for your ghosts. I did simple lines for the eyes and an ‘O’ for the mouth. Put them back on the tray so the faces can set as well.
They are so cute!
Once the ghosts are 100% set (you can even stick the cookie sheet of ghosts in your freezer if you have space) you can now wrap them.
Use small treat bags as covers.
Tie them off with cute festive ribbon.
And you’re done!
Send these to your kiddos school for fall festive treats.
Press the lollipop stick into festive cupcakes and use them as cupcake toppers- similar to how I did Matthew’s first birthday cupcakes.
Make them for your upcoming Halloween party.
Give them to trick or treaters, the list goes on and on!
