I’ll be sharing additional #Choctoberfest information at the end of this post, along with the links of all the food blogger participants (and their tempting chocolate recipes), so please stay tuned… But, in the meantime, let’s continue on with these Deliciously Easy White Chocolate Ghost Pops, shall we?
I developed this “recipe” in honor of #Choctoberfest 2016. I almost hesitate to call it a recipe because with only two ingredients, in all actuality it’s more of a “method” than anything else. So here then is the “method to my madness.” I do hope you enjoy my video as much as I enjoyed making it for you, along with these Deliciously Easy White Chocolate Ghost Pops!

There, that was easy don’t you think? What I neglected to mention in the video is that each package of white chocolate makes 6 ghost pops, so if you need to make more than 6, please plan accordingly. Also, I’ll leave the links to the cello bags and sucker sticks down below if you want to purchase them. The bags work great for packaging larger decorated sugar cookies too, so think ahead because as we all know Christmas is right around the corner. How’s THAT for scary news?!!
The following Amazon.com items are some suggested products I’ve chosen that will aid you in the making of and presentation of these White Chocolate Ghost Pops, if needed. By clicking on the item photo below, you’ll be taken directly to Amazon.com if you’re interested in purchasing any of these products. You are in no way required to do so, and you will not be charged in any way unless you decide to purchase a product through Amazon.
- 1 bag white chocolate chips
- 12 mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 6 standard size chocolate chips
- Microwave the white chocolate on medium power until smooth and creamy. NOT HOT!
- *Note-Check and stir the chocolate often so the chocolate doesn't scorch.
- Pour the melted chocolate into a large zip top bag and work the chocolate into the corner of the bag. Set aside.
- Trace 6 ghost shapes onto copy paper (3" wide x 4" tall). Perfection isn't needed here.
- Cut the ghosts shapes with a scissors and place them on a baking sheet.
- Place a sheet of parchment paper on top of the ghosts on the baking sheet and add a sucker stick to each ghost (making sure you leave enough room for the stick to be flat and so that the ghosts don't touch each other)
- **NOTE - TWO baking sheets and two pieces of parchment may be needed for making six of this size ghosts.
- Use the scissors to snip the corner of the zip top bag and outline and fill the ghosts (and over the stick) liberally with the melted chocolate.
- Use an offset spatula or butter knife to spread the chocolate smoothly over each ghost.
- Place 2 mini semi-sweet chocolate chips for the eyes, and 1 regular semi-sweet chocolate chip for each ghost's mouth.
- Place the baking sheet and ghosts on a level surface in the freezer for 30 minutes.
- Once frozen, carefully add the ghosts to the cellophane bags and tie with ribbon (optional)
Tools and equipment:
pen or pencil
2 medium microwave safe bowls
offset spatula or butter knife
spoon or spatula
sucker sticks or popsicle sticks

Wait, before you go I like to take a moment to coordinate this post with these fun and whimsical Nightmare Before Christmas Wine Glasses I painted for a customer two years ago. To this day, they’re still some of my favorites! If you’re interested in having me paint some wine glasses of this same design for you, I’d be happy to. Please hit the contact button located at the top of my blog and we can discuss what you’re looking for. *Note – These items are not listed in my shops, but I will be happy to take special orders for one (or all) of them if you’re interested.
If there is ever anything I can paint for you, from glassware items to fabrics (aprons, tea towels, book bags), please don’t hesitate to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit one of my shops: Etsy and Wazala. Custom orders are always welcome and I will happily paint and design from any idea, photo or description you send my way. All of my glassware items are dishwasher safe as well as being non-toxic, and all of my hand painted fabrics are machine washable, and dryable! Together we give the gifts that people remember!
