You Need to Try This Wonderful Halloween Peanut Butter Ghosts Recipe

Halloween is all about sweet treats. Nothing says sweet quite like peanut butter and chocolate. This recipe is for adorable ghosts made out of peanut butter, confectioner's sugar, vanilla frosting, chocolate chips, and a couple of other ingredients. This is a great way to get your kids' sweet evening started!

If you want to be unique in your neighborhood, you can make a lot of these and pass them out to kids on Halloween. Make sure to individually wrap them in plastic bags before handing them out. Grab some Halloween-themed bags from your local party store, or use clear bags with orange or black ribbon to tie it shut.

Have your kids give you a hand prepping these ghosts. They'll love being able to form ghost shapes out of the dough; any opportunity to play with their hands is always a welcome one! Keep in mind that these ghosts will need to set in the fridge, so make sure you give them adequate time to do so.

With these peanut butter ghosts in hand, your night will be a success regardless of what you're doing. They work great for trick-or-treating, for your kids before they go out themselves, or for a party. They're not too creepy as to ruin appetites, but they definitely fit the theme of the holiday.
