Easy Halloween Treats your kids can make! These cute little ghosts deliver a punch of flavor on the inside.
I’m. Not. Cute.
Whew! Glad I got that off my chest.
I’ve always wanted to be the girl with the cute ideas for elaborate photo albums and birthday decorations.
I’ve always wanted to make the cute fondant cupcakes and ornate cake pops.
But alas, it’s just not in me.
My brain automatically goes to the practical setting, overriding cute.
I’ve seen these little meringue ghosts dozens of times over the last few years and always think to myself, “That’s pretty cute, but who wants a mouthful of bland meringue?”
Yet this year I thought I’d try my hand at using this concept to make cute AND practical Halloween treats.
Practical, meaning they taste good.
I love these little Halloween treats because they:
- Are so easy to make the kids can take over this project.
- Are deliciously rich with chocolate coconut filling, speckled with dried cherries.
- Have major crunch-factor from the baked meringue and Athens Mini Fillo Shells.
- And they are SO DARN CUTE!
Look at me, I did CUTE!!
The Athens Mini Fillo Shells are the perfect base for these little Halloween treats, because they hold the chocolate coconut filling and are a wonderfully crunchy platform to pipe the ghosts on.
The meringue ghost-topper covers the filling and attaches to the fillo cups to seal in the chocolatey goodness. Then simply place a couple small candies or sprinkles on the ghosts for eyes and bake at a low temperature until hard.
If I can do cute, you can do cute… trust me.
