Need a quick Halloween treat to bring to a party or class? These cute marshmallow white chocolate ghosts will do just the trick. Plus they’re easy enough to have children as young as preschooler participate in making.

White Chocolate Marshmallow Ghosts – Ingredients:
(makes 10 x-large marshmallow ghosts)

1. Jumbo marshmallows (we used the Jet-Puffed brand which comes in X-Large size but you could also use regular size marshmallows)

2. 11 oz. bag of white chocolate chips

3. 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil

4. Toothpicks

5. Parchment paper

6. Edible black marker

7. Googly Eyes (optional – we already had these on hand for the mummy hot dogs we made so just added them for fun)


1. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave proof bowl. Add 1 Tablespoon of vegetable oil (this is to help keep the melted chocolate nice and smooth).

3. Microwave in 30 second intervals and stir in between each heating until chocolate is nicely melted, velvety and smooth.

4. Place your large marshmallows on a baking pan lined with parchment paper and insert one toothpick in the center of each marshmallow.

5. Dip the sides and top of each marshmallow until coated (don’t bother with the bottom since it won’t’ be seen when upright, but that is up to you).

6. It helps to have a butter knife handy to help smooth down the sides if the chocolate coating is too thick

7. Carefully place on top of baking sheet and take toothpick out (attach googly eyes if you have them)

8. Refrigerated for 20-30 minutes until chocolate is hard

9. Have fun decorating faces with your black edible marker!
