Ghost Cookies

Easy Ghost Cookies

We’ve all made these adorable little Nutter Butter Ghost Cookies by now, haven’t we?!

I cannot even tell you who created these originally, but I know we have been making them for many, many years. Then I realized, I have never shared them on the blog!

So for those of you that have not made these and need a super easy halloween treat idea, here it is! Or you could always make these Strawberry Ghosts or Pretzel Ghosts (notice they are all made essentially the same, swapping only 1 ingredient!?).

Three ingredients and 30 minutes. Then you’ll have yourself a clan of these cute little cookies. The kids could even help make these.

Incase you need some tips for dipping these to make them look extra smooth and purdy, I’ve created this short video tutorial showing how I dip my ghost cookies in the Vanilla CandiQuik.  (If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve most likely seen the blooper of this video!)

On another note, you know how your getting (clearing throat)…older?! When you no longer even care about what is going down on Halloween night. You have no desire to dress up. And finally, the big one: when you dress your dog up for Halloween. Or maybe that’s just lame? Well, that’s me, folks. I’ll be sitting at home, dog in costume, eating these cookies on Halloween. The dog costume is freakin’ adorable by the way.

    How can you tell us your dog is adorable and then not tell us (or show us) the costume?! I demand a re-blog. I am super psyched because I finally figured out our group Halloween costume…I am cheesy and always want our family to have a theme. Aaaanyhow, these ghosts are adorable!
