Ingredients for Nutter Butter Ghosts

You just need a few simple ingredients to make these easy ghost cookies:

  • Nutter butter cookies
  • Black decorating frosting (I used Wilton black decorating frosting)
  • White candy melts

How to Make Nutter Butter Ghosts

Step 1: Place the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Continue until chocolate is melted and smooth.

Step 2: Dip about ¾ of each Nutter Butter cookie into the melted candy, then set it aside to allow the candy to set. (Note: You can place it on parchment or wax paper, or a rack with parchment paper underneath to catch any drips.

Step 3: Once the candy has set, pipe the black frosting to make two eyes on each cookie. Serve and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • If you place the cookies on a rack, be very careful lifting the cookies after the candy has set, as the chocolate does tend to stick to the rack.
  • Instead of using the black decorating frosting, you can use an edible marker, candy eyes or mini chocolate chips for the eyes,.
  • Make these into ghost pops by adding a lollipop stick in the center of each cookie. Just press it into the cream filling at the bottom of the cookie.
  • Make mummy cookies by taking some of the white chocolate and placing it in a piping bag. Cut off the tip, then drizzle chocolate back and forth over the cookie until it resembles a mummy. If you don’t have a bag, you can use a spoon instead. Then just add eyes, let your coated cookies set and they’re ready to serve.

How Do I Store These?

Wait for the melted chocolate to harden, then place ghost cookies in an airtight container. If you’re stacking them, be sure to put a piece of parchment or wax paper between easy one. Store at room temperature for up to a week.

Can I Use White Chocolate Chips?

Sure – if you don’t have candy melts, white chocolate chips will also work. You may want to add a little bit of coconut oil to the chocolate to help it melt more smoothly. Almond bark is another option that you could use in place of the candy melting wafers.
