I’m always trying to think of creative Halloween treats for parties and surprising my boys. We’ve made Mummy Truffles and Halloween Snack Mix in the past but I was recently thinking about my Easter chocolate-covered strawberry carrots and thought the idea could use a spooky interpretation!

I’ve seen chocolate covered strawberry ghosts on Pinterest and other blogs but I wanted to try to make a little more variety so I added in some skulls and because I have 3 boys obsessed with zombies, I had to throw them in too!

The great thing is, they are fast and easy to make, so try them out, I’m sure they’ll be a hit!

Step by Step

There is not much to these little guys. I recommend you line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper for easy cleanup before you begin.

Melt your chocolate according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, arrange an assembly line of sorts to make the chocolate dipping easier. It should have strawberries, then dipping chocolate, followed by the sprinkles with a bowl or plate, and finally the lined baking sheet. Keep the candy eyeballs near the baking sheet.

For the ghosts and skeleton skulls, hold your strawberry by the very top and dip in the melting chocolate. Tap off any excess and move to the baking sheet. Press the eyeballs before moving on, you need the chocolate to be warm for them to stick.

For the zombies you’ll follow the same process however after dipping the strawberry in the chocolate you will sprinkle them with the green sprinkling sugar while holding over the bowl or plate to catch the excess. Once they are glittered move them to the baking sheet and press in the eyes.

Move the baking sheet with dipped strawberries to the refrigerator to completely harden. After the chocolate hardens, use the edible pen to draw an oval for the ghost‘s mouth if you want. (They look like ghosts without the mouth drawn on too!)

Tip: If your strawberries have any moisture condensation, remove it before using the edible pen.

To make the skeletons, draw a triangle for the nose and a circle or oval for the mouth.

Aren’t they cutie-patootie??

You can serve these as soon as the chocolate hardens.

Storing instructions

If you aren’t serving right away store in the refrigerator. They are best eaten the same day but you can keep them up to one night in the refrigerator.

Tip: Don’t store the zombies with the ghosts and skeletons to prevent the glitter sprinkles from transferring.
