Boo! Except these vanilla bark covered Ghost Marshmallows are anything but scary. They’re cute, they’re yummy, and they’re so easy to make! All of which makes them the perfect treat for all of your trick or treat get-togethers!
For our Ghost Marshmallows you will first and foremost need large marshmallows. Aside from that, you’ll need vanilla bark. I love this stuff and would cover it in everything if I could. It’s so easy to work with and sweeten up anything from pretzels to popcorn to marshmallows. Your kids could definitely help here!
Put a few blocks of the vanilla bark in the microwave and cook in 20 second increments until melted, stirring after each interval. Then, swirl the end of a popsicle stick in the vanilla bark and insert in one of the large marshmallows. Continue until all sticks are inserted in the marshmallows. Let it set and harden, so your marshmallow is secure.
Then, with a sheet of wax paper covering the table and a cup or something to stand the marshmallows in, dip the top of the marshmallow in the vanilla bark. Let the excess drip down the marshmallow, giving it that fun ghost effect.
Apply candy eyes, and you have the cutest Ghost Marshmallows that are pretty tasty, too. Your guests will be happily spooked and they took no time at all!
