Easy Halloween Treat ~ Chocolate Dipped Ghosts on a Stick!

The clock's ticking on Halloween plans and projects.  With little time to spare, I needed a quick, easy and inexpensive Halloween treat to make with my daughter's girl scout troop the other day.  

If you're short on time as I was, you'll appreciate this no-bake treat that takes only minutes to prepare and requires only a few ingredients!  

What's more, it's easy for kids to do and would make a fun activity for a Halloween party!


Marshmallow Ghosts on a Stick

(makes 2 dozen)

Step 1:  Remove Peeps Ghosts from package.  Separate into individual ghosts.  Insert a lollipop stick in to each ghost (till it reaches the top, but doesn't poke through).

Step 2:  Line two baking sheets or trays with parchment, wax paper, or a silicone mat.

Step 3:  Melt chocolate* and place in a narrow, but deep bowl (you'll get more dips this way).  Dip each ghost, tapping off excess chocolate before placing on the lined baking sheet to set.  When all ghosts have been dipped, place pan in the refrigerator for ten minutes.

Step 4:  Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate.  Transfer to a piping bag or Ziploc bag with a tiny portion snipped from the tip.

Step 5:  Remove chocolate ghosts from refrigerator.  Use the melted white chocolate to pipe eyes, a mouth, and a ruffled hem.

Step 6:  White chocolate will set quickly, but if your room is warm and it does not set, place pan(s) in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.  Once chocolate has set, wrap in cellophane bags and decorate with tulle or ribbon.
