Tricky-treat-making during the month of October can be fun for the whole family, especially the kids.
Yesterday afternoon we whipped these up in no time at all. From start to finish they take only about ten minutes to put together.
These Ghosts on a Stick are the perfect treat to bring to a Halloween Party. With a delicious pear underneath the coating, everyone will appreciate this semi-healthy treat, especially parents.
So let’s make them up together, shall we…
Here’s what you will need: Pears, Candiquik, almond bark or any white chocolate, mini chocolate chips and popsicle sticks.
First you’ll want to remove the stems from the pears and insert the popsicle sticks.
Prepare the Candiquik according to package directions or melt almond bark or white chocolate as you always do. I like to use Candiquik because it hardens very quickly and is easy for the kids to pour over the pear. Set each pear on waxpaper to dry.
Before the coating or chocolate completely drys, decorate with mini-chocolate chips for the eyes.
Enjoy the ghosts, you will love them.

4 Ripe pears, stems removed
1 Tray of Vanilla Candiquik or 18 ounces almond bark or regular white chocolate*

Wash and dry pears.
Remove stems from pears and insert popsicle sticks.
Prepare Candiquik according to package directions or melt almond bark or white chocolate accordingly.
Scoop Candiquik or other chocolate over the pear until completely covered. Place on waxpaper to dry. Decorate with mini chocolate chips for eyes. Repeat with remaining pears.
Refrigerate until firm and ready to serve.
*Candiquik can be found at a super WalMart store in the baking aisle or ordered online.
I love Halloween figurines, especially wooden ones. All of my figurines have been picked up at quaint little shops here and there. Some in Mendocino where we vacation or in San Clemente where I used to live. The pumpkin clown on the right is a Paul Gordon piece. I love his work and purchase it whenever given the chance. For a frame of reference, the largest piece in the middle is about 7 inches tall.
I love this pumpkin man. It is also a Paul Gordon figurine. For me it’s just so whimsical and different than most Halloween decor I’ve found. This one is about 10 inches tall.
These are some of my wooden Halloween witches. I think the pencil witch on the left was the first one I ever purchased. I also love the two smaller ones holding their toads. The largest witch is about twelve inches in height.
These little wooden pieces roll when pulled by their strings. They are about three inches tall. I have had them forever but can’t remember where I bought them.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing these as much as I enjoyed showing them to you!
