    Was fun to make with the children but it did take a lot of oven time so next time I will have other things to do with them also. Going to also adapt this for some Christmas treats.

    I use one very simular to this one. 2 egg whites, 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar, pinch salt, 9 Tbsp Sugar, 3/4 tsp your favorite Extract. One of my favorite flavors, for us Adults, is Jamocha: 4 tsp Cocoa Powder, 1 teaspoon Instant Coffee with 3/4 teaspoon of Rum Extract.

    Great Halloween Snacks

    Spooky Sweets

    Jeannine Gramstad from NEWBURGH, NY

    Kids loved this - my son took to a halloween party. I melted the morsels & created eyes after the ghost dried. For the boys, I put a plastic spider on the ghost's belly right before the ghost dried. For the girls, I put a fake finger on the belly. Even after the girls thought the ideas were gross, they devoured all of them.

    Great Halloween Treat

    Kendra Hudman from IDAHO FALLS, ID

    These were the best little things to whip up. I added some grey tint to some of the batter and made these little ghosts look more dimensional. They didn't last long at my house. We will definitely keep making these.

    Spooky Treat

    Diane Ferguson from Martinez, GA

    These are just too cute but a little hard for small children to do. Our ghost looked like they were standing on their heads and they sometimes looked like a big pumkin. We added sprinkle to the ghost also. A great recipe to let your kids be creative with.

    Ghosts Lollipops

    I made the ghosts, using the meringue, then made them using the white-choc.-morsels for the body and dark-choc for the eyes. Both were a hit with everyone.
