White Chocolate Ghost Suckers are a must have for Halloween. It’s another one of those things that I have no idea when my Mom started doing this. I just know that she always made these for us, growing up. Of course that was in the days where you could bring homemade goodies to share with the class. My Mom was always the room Mother (well, truthfully I think she rotated through all 4 of us kids, but she’d still be there helping out even when she wasn’t THE room Mom). She would make these for all of us to give to our classmates. Once I moved out on my own, I started making these myself, as I couldn’t imagine having a Halloween without these!
They are so quick and easy, and cute! You will love them! Here is a template that you can use for your suckers.
Print out your template and gather your other supplies. You need white chocolate, mini chocolate chips, sucker sticks, and wax paper.
Place your ghost template underneath a sheet of wax paper. The wax paper can shift around on you so you might want to tape it down. I don’t find that necessary myself.
I melt my white chocolate in a ziplock baggie. I microwave it for 30 seconds and then squish the bag. Then, I microwave in 10 second increments until it becomes the right consistency. You want it thin so that it will run out of the bag easily. I then smoosh it all to one corner and snip off a tiny piece of the tip of the corner.
Next you just fill in the template using the white chocolate. Add the sucker stick about halfway up the ghost (stopping about at the ghosts “belly button”). You will have to twist the stick to make sure it is covered all the way in white chocolate.
Now you add 2 mini chocolate chips for the eyes. I have substituted M&Ms, or other things. But, trust me on this one, you want to use mini chocolate chips. They are so much cuter. I try to make the eyes look the same direction by making sure the tops of the chocolate chips go off to the same side.
Here are all my suckers filled in, eyes added, and sticks covered. Refrigerate them for about an hour before you pull them right off of the wax paper. They are ready to go. I like to put them in those cute cellophane bags and then tie them off with pretty ribbons. Since these are the first of the season though, they will just be for my kids and so no wrapping is necessary. You can make these ahead of time and just keep them in the refrigerator until you need them. I’m not sure how long chocolate stays good…I don’t think any lasts very long around my house. ;)
I really hope you try this as it is one of my favorite treats at Halloween. Add pictures of yours to our flikr group!
PS Thanks Mom, for all the great traditions. You are such an inspiration to me, and have given me so many wonderful things to pass on to my own children, to make life more special. And you’ve given me so many great ways to celebrate with my children!

I made these with Gluten, Dairy, Nut and Soy Free chocolate chips from Enjoy life. The candies are also gluten and dairy free.
I simply used the bat template from Anjeanette’s Inspiration post and the a cat clip are from my Photoshop Elements program.
Thanks Rebecca for the inspiration for these!!
