These are VERY sweet. And I wouldn't reccommend them for trick or treaters as most parents won't allow home made treats. Perhaps for a school party or gathering at home, but not for kids going door to door.

I was pleased with how easy it was to make this treats. We made several different sizes and used them to decorate cakes for our Fall Carnival. I can imagine using the same technique with different shapes for other occasions, too. Thanks!

I will be making these ghosts to decorate a Halloween-Cake. I will make a sheet cake with the theme of a cemetery, with ghosts everywhere. I made one of these cakes last year but made the ghosts from cake, this recipe , using melted chocolate will be much easier.

After reviewing this recipe, I find that this is a recipe that will be exceptionally good for little children to participate in making "ghosts" for Hallolween; with the supervision of an adult. I think that my grandchildren will enjoying making something a bit different than cookies. Great idea!

We made these for easter, poured them into bunny cookie cutters, but we couldn't put a stick in them! So we called it "bunny fudge"!
