First up, a trio of ghost candies, starting with ghost cake pops. I used pumpkin spice cake to make these easy lollipops--'tis the season, after all. The crumbled pumpkin cake is mixed with cream cheese frosting, then I put my play-doh sculpting skills to good use forming small ghostly figures. These are an awesome addition to a Halloween party dessert table, or they could be individually wrapped and passed out as party favors. Or you could just eat them all yourself! Not like I'd know anything about that...
Moving on! Ghost Strawberries are just about the easiest thing you can make--simply melt some white chocolate, dip fresh strawberries, and add little chocolate faces. Of course real white chocolate makes these extra delicious, but I won't tell if you use white chocolate chips--just be aware that you may want to add a little oil or shortening to thin it out and make it easier to work with.
Finally, these Meringue Ghosts are practically virtuous compared to some other Halloween treats. Meringues are light and crispy candies made from egg whites and some sugar, so they're fairly low-calorie. As the recipe is written they're a subtle vanilla flavor, but they can be customized with any additional extracts or flavors you'd like. Meringues are a wee bit tricky, so I have this video showing how to make meringue ghosts that'll take you through each step of the process.
