HALLOWEEN RECIPE: Spooky chocolate ghosts!

HALLOWEEN RECIPE: Spooky chocolate ghosts!

We take seasonal events like Halloween and Christmas very seriously here at FashionBite, and won’t let one pass us by without celebrating in some way. At the weekend, we marked the occasion at the Kigu ‘Horrors Of The Deep’ fancy dress party before the big day, and will be spending Halloween itself making these little fellas. They’re almost too cute to eat! Almost…

The best thing about this recipe is that it promises to take just 5 minutes and can be made easily with younger companions. My guess is there will need to be some black magic involved for me to have everything ready in that time, but I’ll be giving it a go!

To try them out yourself, you will need:

  • 50g (5oz) white chocolate, chopped
  • 15g (½oz) milk or plain chocolate
  • 6 lollipop sticks or chocolate-coated pretzel sticks
First off, put the white chocolate into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on full power for 20sec bursts until melted and smooth.
Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Dollop 1tbsp of the melted white chocolate on to the parchment, then use the back of a teaspoon to fashion the dollop into a ghost shape – smearing out a head, tapered tail and two arms. Repeat with remaining white chocolate.
Lay a lollipop or pretzel stick on top of each ghost, halfway down the body, and spread over a little more chocolate to secure in place. Melt the milk or plain chocolate in a separate bowl as before. Using a cocktail stick, drip small amounts on to ghosts to make eyes and a mouth.
Finally, let them chill until solid. Spookily quick, scarily easy and only 145 calories each – enjoy!
Happy Halloween.
