Halloween is just days away, and if you’re looking for a frightfully easy treat to serve to your little goblins, these Nutter Butter Ghosts will do just the trick. This no-bake recipe only requires three ingredients, and since they’re so simple, you’ll want to make tons of them. A Nutter Butter cookie is dipped in white chocolate and then adorned with dark chocolate eyes and a mouth. How can something so haunting be so sweet? If you’re behind in crafting your costume, or baking just really isn’t your thing, these cookies only take a few minutes to prepare and like I said earlier, are frighteningly easy.
Halloween always seems to sneak up on me. I’m not sure if it’s because it is the first holiday to kick off the season or what but more often than not, I find myself crunched for time. Crunched for time, doesn’t have to mean no holiday treats though. With the help of store bought cookies, these Nutter Butter Ghosts really couldn’t be more simple. They are made, as quickly as they’ll be eaten.
1 pound white candy coating, chopped
1 package (1 pound) Nutter Butter peanut butter cookies
Dark chocolate chips, melted
In a microwave, melt candy coating; stir until smooth. Dip cookies into coating, covering completely; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper.
Brush ends with a pastry brush dipped in coating where fingers touched cookies. Let stand until set. If desired, use melted chocolate chips to pipe faces onto cookies. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3 dozen.
