Twinkies may or may not be one of my guilty pleasures. When they disappeared a few years ago, I was heartbroken. It was a bit like Tallahassee in the movie Zombieland searching for a Twinkie. I also happen to be a huge fan of white chocolate desserts. Combine them and you have one of my favorite Halloween Desserts – these White Chocolate Twinkie Ghosts!
These white chocolate desserts are great not only because they taste amazing, but also because they’re such a kid-friendly dessert! Kids love to “cook” and these Halloween ghosts are super fun for them to make!
White Chocolate Halloween Desserts
Because this Halloween dessert idea is meant for kids Halloween parties, we’ve kept them away from the super scary type of Halloween that you normally see.
Instead, they are more cute than anything. It also doesn’t hurt anything that they’re delicious and only take a few steps too!
You Will Need:
To get started making your ghost desserts, unwrap each Twinkie and set aside. It can also be helpful to pop them into the freezer for 10 minutes or so, but that isn’t necessary.
Doing so does help you get a good cut in the next step, but if your knife is sharp enough, you may not need to do so.
To get started making these Halloween desserts, line a baking sheet with parchment paper then cut the Twinkies in half.
Stand them up on the parchment paper like shown in the photo – cut side facing down.
Next, add the white chocolate candy melts to a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30-seconds.
After 30-seconds, use the silicone spatula to stir the candy well. Continue to microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring after each until the candy has melted smooth and creamy.
Use the spatula to “spoon” the melted chocolate over each Twinkie so that it drips down the side and covers the entire Twinkie
Make sure that you pour enough over each to pool at the bottom to create the flow of the ghost.
Once you have your ghost desserts covered well, stash them in the fridge for 20-minutes or until the white chocolate has hardened.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.
Remove them from the fridge and use the blank frosting with a tip to draw on eyes and mouth to one side of each Twinkie.
If the white chocolate begins to soften before you get all the faces drawn, just pop them back in the fridge for a few.
