Marshmallow Ghosts and Ghouls


These are great fun to make, and delicious to eat! They make a good activity for a Halloween party too - just provide a bowl or two of melted chocolate and the necessary decorations and let the kids loose on their own treats. Read online or watch our video below...

marshmallow ghosts and ghouls


White chocolate chips or white chocolate
Silver ball cake decorations or similar
Writing icing
Strawberry laces (optional)


Melt the white chocolate or white chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave, or over a saucepan of simmering water. This takes a minute or two.

While you are waiting, start making your ghosts. Thread a couple of white marshmallows onto a lollipop (popsicle) stick for each one. Now dip the ghosts into the melted chocolate and swirl them around to cover the top of the ghosts' "heads". Bring them out and lay them flat on a paper plate for the chocolate to harden, pushing a couple of silver balls on for eyes before it does.

Use a tube of writing icing to draw on a mouth and any other features you would like. Keep in the fridge until you need them.

To make the ghouls, use either white or coloured marshmallows. Thread one on per stick. Add some green food colouring to the chocolate and then swirl the marshmallows in it as before, this time covering as much of the surface as possible. Use silver balls for eyes, but this time add some other decoration too: we used strawberry candy strands for hair and would have added chocolate drops for ears if we hadn't eaten them all already! Leave to harden as before.
