Chocolate Covered Ghost Strawberries

*This post has garnered a few pinterest mentions lately, so I thought I would share it again with all of my current readers in case you missed it last year. 

Aren't these adorable?  

 I think these little white chocolate-covered strawberry ghosts are the perfect Halloween treat for kids and parents to make together. If you can make chocolate covered strawberries, you (and your kids) can make these.

You'll need:
  • Strawberries
  • 1 pkg. white chocolate or almond bark
  • baking sheet
  • wax paper
  • chocolate sprinkles or chocolate chips 
Here's how:
  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper
  • Slice the tops off of your strawberries.
  • Melt chocolate as directed on package
  • Dip the pointed end of the strawberries in the chocolate and lay them, flat end down on the baking sheet.
  • Apply sprinkles or choco chips for the eyes and mouth.

Eat and enjoy!

This was one of thpse activities that just sort of happened. I knew I wanted to make chocolate covered strawberries, but the "ghost" just came together. Muffin Tin Boy got very into it as went along and was very proud of his creations. With kids, I would expect them to look anything like actual ghosts. :)

  1. Yum! I bet my son would love making the ghosts, but he wouldn't eat them, because he's crazy and won't touch strawberries. I would probably have to eat them all myself (okay, maybe share with Husband and Baby). What a shame that would be.

  2. Too cute. Much healthier than my halloween treats: http://superheroesandprincesses.blogspot.com/2010/10/marshmallow-halloween-treats.html
