The Ghost Cookies
You don't even have to make the cookies for this easy Halloween Ghost Cookie idea. Just purchase chocolate cookies like Oreos, marshmallows, and frosting and get going on these ghost cookie treats. They look really impressive but aren't hard at all to make.
2. Nutter Butter Ghost Cookies
Only 3 ingredients are needed for this fun decorated Ghost Cookie Recipe. How much easier can this get? A Box of peanut butter filled cookies plus two other ingredients that you most likely already have in your house? I'm guessing you'll have these whipped up in 15 minutes especially if you have some little ones helping you! You can easily turn this idea into some Ghost Cupcakes by just sticking the bottom end of the Nutter Butter Ghost Cookie into the top of a frosted white cupcake.
3. Ghost Cupcakes for kids
Dum Dums and fondant make these Ghost Cupcakes super spooky and fun. Again… don't worry if you don't feel like baking because you can purchase some chocolate frosted cupcakes for this idea. I know the idea of fondant sounds way too fancy. But you don't have to be a wedding cake chef to use it. Imagine the kids' surprise when they not only get a Ghost Cupcake, but they also get a dum dum lollipop! Bring on the candy!
4. Halloween Cake Pops
First of all, kids love cake pops and I have to say as a mom so do I! Not only are they handy finger food dessert that doesn't usually end up in a whole bunch of crumbs all over the floor but they are also fun to eat. Because anything on a stick is fun to eat! I like the way These cake pops are upside down and can be shaped to look like a ghost or you can do the regular ball shape and let the frosting make the white puddle around the bottom of your Ghost Halloween Cake Pops.
