milano ghosts

On Saturday, Amelia and I made a little project for her preschool class Halloween party – Milano cookie ghosts. She had previously requested that we make a treat that she could help with. Happy to oblige, I came up with the following project, easy enough for an almost 5-year old.

Step 1: buy Milano cookies, melting white chocolate and mini chocolate chips. Step 2: melt white chocolate in microwave. Step 3: dip cookies halfway in chocolate and lay on wax paper. Step 4: decorate with mini chocolate chip "eyes."

I let them dry overnight and packaged them in clear bags with a cute label. Couldn't be easier and Amelia can't wait to hand them out to her class on Thursday!

Do you dry them overnight at room temperature? Covered? in the refrigerator?
