E.L. Fugde Ghosts - a Small Tutorial

As far as I know, my sister invented these. And now we all make them every year. I've seen them done before with Nutter Butters, but it really only makes sense to do them with E.L. Fudge Cookies.

Here's what you'll need: E.L. Fudge Cookies (I could only find Double Stuffed), white chocolate, a small amount of mini chocolate chips, a glass bowl or double boiler to melt the white chocolate and trays with parchment paper on them.

I like to lay everything out before I get started because you sort of have to work fast before the white chocolate sets up too much. So here's my work space all ready. I melt the white chocolate in the microwave and then place the whole bowl over a pan with hot water in the very bottom.

I've found that if you just sort of spread the white chocolate on the front and sides using a plastic or wooden spoon (leaving the feet showing of course!!) it's easier to make and eat them. If you dip the cookie, you use a lot more white chocolate and they are SOOOO rich when you eat them. I couldn't get a picture of this since I needed both hands. So really what kind of tutorial is this that I don't show you the most important step? Oh well, you're smart. You'll figure it out!

While the white chocolate is still melty, add the mini chips for the eyes.

I found that one bag of white chocolate chips can cover (front and sides) of about 40 E.L. Fudge cookies.

The benefit of using Double Stuffed (besides the extra frosting)? They can even stand on their own!
