I miss the old days of Saturday morning cartoons. I lived for Scooby Doo and of all the episodes the "Green Ghosts" one was my favorite. Tell me I'm not the only person who read Agatha Christie later in life and thought she'd stolen her Ten Little Indians plot from Scooby Doo . . .
Anyway, it's October, we're talking Halloween and these have got to be the easiest treats for kids to make.
You get a bag of those fake-chocolate drops for candy making (you can get them at Walmart or at any place that sells candy making supplies) and melt them in a glass container in the microwave, stirring until they're melted and spreadable. They're easier to work with than regular chocolate because because they don't burn as easily when you melt them but you still have to watch them a bit.
Then you cover a cookie sheet with wax paper and scoop up a blob of the fake chocolate goo and spread it with a spoon into a generalized ghost shape. Add upside down chocolate chips for eyes and a stick at the bottom and you've got yourself a Green Ghost you can bite.
The beauty of it is that you cannot go wrong with ghosts, the shape is perfect no matter what.
