Sugar Aunts: Ghost Cookie Treats

Ghost Cookie Treats

Need a quick and easy kid-friendly Halloween treat?  These Oreo cookie ghost snacks will fit the bill for preschool parties, school-aged parties, or a play date. Any Halloween party would be a little sweeter with these easy ghost cookies!

This was a cute little snack that I threw together one Friday night.  Friday nights in our house don't mean the same thing they did pre-kids.  Now, we do pizza for dinner, family movie night, hang out with neighbors, and kid stuff.  Oh, how life has changed!  We usually have music going and always, "It won't be like this for long" playing.  It's our family theme song right now.  So, while your'e celebrating this season of little kids, make a few ghost cookies.  Or, if your little ones are older and you've got big kid ghouls to serve, I'm thinking they would gobble these treats up just as quick!

Oreo ghost cookie snack treats. These would be great for preschool or school parties and Kid-friendly Halloween parties.

I started with a package of Oreo cookies.  Twist the tops off.  Eat them.

Of course.

Grab a handful of M&MS minis.  Sort out the brown ones.  Eat the rest.

I mean, mom needs a little sugar too.  To keep up with the kids. Right??!

Next is the fun part:  Assembling the ghost cuties.  I used a vegetable slicer to make a wavy bottom to the ghosts.  Press the vegie slicer onto the white cookie cream and curve it a bit.  Scrape the cookie cream off of the black cookie.  

Eat it.

Notice a theme?

Press the m&ms onto the ghost faces.  I only slightly pressed the candies and they stayed in place.  If you are going to be transporting these cookies to a party, you might want to use a bit of icing to keep them in place.  Use a large straw to press out a mouth from the cookies.  Your ghosts are done!

Let us know if you make these cookies for a fun Halloween event.  We would love to see your versions and hear about it on our Facebook page.  Looking for more fun food ideas for kids?  Check out our Food for Kids Pinterest board.
