Crafty Recipe - Popcorn Ghostsby Wen Zientek-SicoThese cute little ghosts are quick and easy to make and the whole family can have lots of fun making them. This recipe makes *a lot* of ghosts - up to 40-50 depending on how large you make them. We made ours in a variety of sizes and shapes and each one seemed to have its own little personality. We scattered these all over our table and around the room and our guests were able to admire or snack on them as they wanted.
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
12 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips
Additional butter for greasing hands
Place waxed paper on a large countertop surface or on several baking sheets. Melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave until smooth. Toss the marshmallows with the popcorn until thoroughly coated. Using well buttered hands, form the popcorn into small ghost shapes. Add two mini chocolate chip eyes to each ghost. You will need to regrease your hands multiple times while making the ghosts to prevent sticking. Place the formed ghosts on the waxed paper and let dry for at least two hours before eating. If it is very humid out, store in an airtight container or else the ghosts will absorb the moisture and get sticky.
Makes about 40 ghosts.
