{TUTORIAL} Halloween Ghost Pops


Photobucket

You're in for a treat today! Halloween Oreo ghost pops - yum!

Need a fabulous treat to take to a school Halloween party? Want to make a teacher smile with a sweet gift of appreciation? Or how about a fun treat to leave at a friend's house after "Boo-ing" them? These ghost pops would be perfect and are as easy to make as they are cute with the help of a silicone ghost mold from Spinning Leaf.

What to purchase:
- Halloween Oreos
- White chocolate candy coating
- Black candy melts (or dark chocolate if you can't find the black candy coating)
- Oreo ghost mold from Spinning Leaf




TUTORIAL:

Photobucket

STEP 1: Put a few black candy melts in a microwave safe dish

STEP 2: Microwave according to the directions - be careful not to scorch it

STEP 3: Dip a clean, new small paintbrush into your melted candy coating 

STEP 4: Brush the candy melts into the eye and mouth cavities of your ghost molds

STEP 5: Finish Step 4 for all of the ghost molds




Photobucket

STEP 6: Melt your white chocolate candy coating (be sure to follow the directions on the label)

STEP 7: Fill one ghost cavity 1/3 full of melted candy coating

STEP 8: Place your Oreo inside the cavity, making sure it is level

STEP 9: Spoon more candy coating over the Oreo to cover

STEP 10: Repeat for all of your ghost molds

STEP 11: Use the back of a knife to wipe away the excess candy coating and create a smooth back for your ghosts. Place the molds in the refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes or until the chocolate hardens.

STEP 12: Remove the molds from the refrigerator and bend the silicone slightly to pop out each ghost

STEP 13: Run a sharp knife around the edge of each ghost to remove the excess chocolate

STEP 14: Smooth the cut edges of chocolate with your fingers

You may wrap your little ghosts treats in cellophane and give them away at this stage or if you would like them on skewers like the ones in the photos, just carefully and slowly twist the sharp, pointed end of a wooden bbq skewer into the bottom of each ghost. Add a few cut rounds of white tissue paper stacked on top of one another with a few rounds of cheesecloth stacked on top of the tissue paper. Next add a sweet ribbon bow and you're done! 


So cute!

Just love this idea. And I have everything to make them. I think these would be great to send off to my grandson who is in bootcamp.

This idea is absolutely to die for - please be careful sending treats to anyone in Boot Camp or basic training though - my husband said several people got goodie boxes and not only were they not allowed to eat them, but they got into a lot of trouble and had to do hundreds of push ups just for getting it in the mail!
