Halloween Ghosts

When holidays are approaching, I always pick up the ingredients I need to make the traditional treats the family is accustomed to. I do this a month or two early so I can count the ingredients as part of my 3 month supply. If an extra stressful time hits your family right around a holiday, it is helpful to still be able to eat your traditional foods. 

These little ghosts are so simple. My preschoolers love the chance to help make them!

They take three ingredients - Nutter Butter cookies (those of you with nut allergies could look for a similar shaped cookie) white dipping chocolate, and mini chocolate chips. All of these ingredients will store for quite a few months.

Melt the dipping chocolate in the microwave. Dip the cookies in the chocolate being sure to coat them well.

Lay on waxed paper to harden. Place two mini chocolate chips on for eyes before the chocolate hardens. Enjoy! They will store dipped for quite some time also if you can keep yourself and your kids from eating them. They work great for school parties because they can be done ahead of time and sent in with your child if your schedule does not allow you to take something in the time of the party.
