Marshmallow Ghosts

Marshmallows decorated as ghosts made easy. Dipped in white chocolate and decorative eyes for a Halloween haunted spooky party!
Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 2 MinInactive time: 30 MinTotal time: 42 Min


  • 6 to 8 Large marshmallows

  1. Prepare the ahead of time a small sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet and set it aside. Get the bowl you're using ready and filled with styrofoam covered with Christmas cotton set that aside.
  2. You will need to have ready, two eyes for each ghost set aside and the skewers for the amount of marshmallows your dipping.
  3. Place one large marshmallow on an appetizer skewer or use lollipop sticks. (I find them at discount stores or online)
  4. In the meantime melt the white chocolate melts in a microwave-proof bowl making sure you stir every 30 seconds. (this takes around 2 to 3 minutes)
  5. Dip each marshmallow into the melted chocolate and set them on the wax paper, then attach the eyes while still wet.
  6. Note: you can sprinkle sugar on them for a glistening look
  7. Let that dry for around 30 minutes or you can set these in the fridge for around 10 minutes for a quick set.
  8. Stick the bottom of your ghost sticks into the styrofoam bowls and enjoy your new Halloween Ghost Centerpiece!
