Ghost Cookie Ingredients

There are only 3 simple ingredients to make these frightful Halloween treats!

Nutter Butter Cookies – Grab a package of Nutter Butter cookies from the grocery store! Although we love using Nutter Butter cookies, there’s no need to panic if someone in your family has a peanut allergy or if you simply dislike Nutter Butter cookies. You can easily replace them with delicious Milano cookies.

White Almond Bark – I love using Almond Bark to dip fruit, cookies and other treats in as it’s easily found at most grocery stores. Be sure to use white almond bark for your ghost cookies.

Candy Eyeballs – I love finding super fun sprinkles to make dipped cookies with, and I usually have some in my pantry especially when I’m making fun Halloween cookies! I purchased these adorable candy eyeballs on Amazon! However, you might be able to find them at a local craft store around Halloween, especially if they have a good baking section.

How to Make Nutter Butter Ghost Cookies

These ghost cookies only take about 15 minutes from start to finish depending on how much help you have from the kids!

Grab all your ingredients and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Melt the almond bark as per the package instructions. I like to use a glass measuring cup and melt mine in the microwave.

Dip the Nutter Butter cookies about halfway into the melted white almond bark and place on them on the parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Before the almond bark sets, add the candy eyeballs to each cookie. I had one of my boys dipping cookies and the other one was adding the eyes. At this point the kids will probably sneak a few candy eyeballs and think it’s hilarious they’re eating eyeballs!

Putting the candy eyes on the white almond bark dipped ghost cookies.

Allow the melted white almond bark to set before transferring your Nutter Butter ghost cookies to a plate or container.
