  • Strawberries
  • White melting chocolate (We liked Ghirardelli white melting wafers found at Safeway)
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Wax paper



  1. Melt the chocolate according to manufacturers’ directions.
  2. Hold on to the green top and dip a strawberry in the white chocolate.
  3. Do not shake the excess off. Coat well and hold the strawberry just above wax paper, letting the excess drip to form a little ghost trail before setting the strawberry down.
  4. Place two mini-chocolate chips on the ghost for eyes and another for a mouth.

  • We had the best luck making three at a time.
  • The white melting chocolate hardens quickly so make sure you put the chocolate chips eyes on before it’s too late.
  • If the chocolate hardens, you can dip a toothpick in the bowl of melted chocolate and dab it on the chocolate chip in order to affix it to the strawberry.
  • If you don’t find Ghirardelli’s wafers, we have also had good results with Candiquik sold at Target.
