Halloween is quickly approaching and the anticipation is palpable. Stores are releasing more and more creepy merchandise, and candy aisles are the number one stop for spooky critters. Soon, the residents of the town will transform into goblins, witches, ghouls and, of course, ghosts.
Halloween is my favorite holiday and I have been counting down the days until I get to pull out last year’s decorations. Within one weekend, my apartment is transformed into a spooky, cobweb-infested lair.
Mice silhouettes line the living room while bats fill the ceiling and the fireplace holds a stack of paper-mache bones. Bloody candles burn in the corner and ghosts stare at you through the mirror. You’ll see all of this, if you can make it past the snake- and insect-infested wreath that greets you at the front door.
Nothing quite says Halloween like ghosts of all kinds, including creepy ones, friendly ones and chocolate ones, the latter being my favorite. As well as cheese clothes ghosts that fill the empty space in my apartment, I made White Chocolate Ghost Lollipops, last year, for my friends in celebration of this grand holiday.
These lollipops are simple to make and leave a minimal mess and within a week, they were all gone. They also make a great Halloween party treat for any age group. So, grab your double-boiler and head to the kitchen to make it simple and festive treat.
12 ounce bag of white chocolate chips
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
mini chocolate chips
1.Using a double-boiler, melt the white chocolate chips with the vegetable oil. While it melts, prepare your baking sheet with a lining of wax paper.
2. When the chocolate is melted, use a 1/2 tbsp and pour the ghost in a rough shape. Use the back of the spoon to better shape the ghost.
3. Place the lollipop stick in the base of the ghost and roll it to cover the stick in white chocolate. Add the mini chocolate chips for the eyes and place in the fridge for about 7 to 8 minutes. The lollipops should be hardened and will peel right off of the wax paper. Enjoy!
