Kids in the Kitchen – Halloween Ghost Cookies

These Halloween Ghost Cookies are super easy to make, extra tasty and a great way to get your kids into the kitchen this holiday season! One of my favorite Halloween treats to make each year!

As a child, I spent a good amount of time at my grandparent’s house.  It was one of my favorite places to be.  I was the first grandchild and the only girl for a good long while.  I have such great memories of sleepovers, popcorn, and hot chocolate before bed, crafting with my grandma and just getting royally spoiled with all kinds of good food!

My grandmother loved to cook.  During the holiday season, we baked and baked every year.  I vividly remember making these Ghost Cookies with her one Halloween at least 20 years ago.  It seems funny to me now that this was a cookie that we made together.  I mean honestly, where would she have gotten this idea?  There was no Pinterest at the time.  Was this one of those recipes that showed up in the newspaper that she clipped out because it looked like something I would enjoy making with her?

I could ask her but I doubt she would remember either.  Regardless of where the idea came from I have always cherished the memory of making these with her.  This year I made these Ghost Cookies with my 4-year-old and we had a blast.  I can only hope that she will retain fond memories of making these with me too.

One package of Nutter Butters

One bag of melting chocolate (get a good brand, it makes all the difference)

Eyes (optional – my grandma and I just used black icing to make eyes and a mouth)

Microwaveable bowl

Baking Sheet

Directions

Follow the instructions on how to melt your chocolate in the microwave.  Be careful not to scorch it.

Dip the front half of your Nutter Butter into the chocolate.  Make sure you get the sides well covered.  This will be messy but that is just part of the fun.

Lay each cookie chocolate side up on your baking sheet.

Decorate as desired.

Refrigerate one hour or until chocolate is cooled.

I mean seriously these are so easy!  No need to be Pinterest perfect so let your kids take charge!  My daughter wanted most of the ghosts to have 3 eyes!
