  • candy melting potmicrowave, or double boiler to melt the candy melts
  • Cookie Sticks — I prefer using cookie sticks to lollipop sticks because they’re thicker and sturdier.
  • spatula
  • Wilton Melting Pot — this is completely optional, but if you’ve ever had any trouble melting chocolate or candy melts, I highly recommend this candy melting pot. You simply toss the candy in, and walk away…just remember to give it a stir or two. It melts the candy perfectly every time!

Twinkie Halloween Ghost Treats Instructions

Step One: Freeze Twinkies

  1. Place the Twinkies in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This makes them much easier to work with.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet by covering it with wax or parchment paper.

Step Two: Melt Candy Melts

  1. Melt the white candy melts. If using a microwave, set it for 30 seconds, then stir and repeat until the candy is completely melted and runny. Pro Tip: if the melted candy is not thin enough, add a small amount of shortening and stir. This will help thin it out.

Step Three: Insert Cookie Stick

  1. Stick the top 1/3 of a cookie stick into the melted candy, then insert it in the bottom of the Twinkie. Make sure you insert the stick into the Twinkie at least halfway.
  2. Put the Twinkies on the baking sheet and place them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to allow the candy to harden. This will ensure the stick stays in place.

Step Four: Coat Twinkies in White Chocolate

  1. Coat each Twinkie in the melted candy, rolling to allow the excess candy to drip off.
  2. Place the Twinkies back on the wax paper lined baking sheet and return to the freezer for 10 to 15 more minutes, or until the candy has hardened.
  3. Once you remove them from the freezer, use a knife to carefully trim off any candy that ran off the sides.

Step Five: Add Ghost Faces

  1. Add the eyes and the mouth using the black icing. Tip: if you don’t have a small enough icing tip, use a toothpick as a “pen”, dipping it in the icing and then ‘drawing’ the mouth and eyes.

Step Six: Allow Icing to Set

Place Ghosts to the side and allow the icing to set for about 15 minutes before serving.

And there you have it. Halloween Ghost Twinkies that are sure to make everyone scream with delight!

Happy Haunting!
