Ghoulishly Fun Halloween Cookies

 Make some spooky fun this Halloween with these adorable ghost & goblin cookies.  They are so incredibly quick & easy.  There's hardly any cooking involved, making this perfect for little kitchen helpers!
Here's what you need to make them:
Vanilla Flavored Almond Bark
Oreo Cookies
Nutter Butter Cookies
Mini Chocolate Chips
Toothpicks (optional)

Heat the almond bark in a sauce pan over your stove's lowest level of heat. 
 You could use white chocolate chips too.  But I find that almond bark melts more smooth & easily.  Just to give you an idea of how much to use, I did about 12 of each type of cookie using about 8 squares of chocolate. 
 While the chocolate is melting, get your cookies ready.  I inserted tooth picks into the center to make them easier to dip.
 You'll need to be careful not to stick the toothpick too far into the the Nutter Butter cookies or they will come apart. 
You need to stir the chocolate occasionally while it melts, but as long as you keep the stove on low, this really is effortless. 
When the chocolate is melted, set up an assembly line.  I set out a sheet of parchment paper.  Then stacked up all the cookies at one end, with the melted chocolate. 
 Dip the cookies, one at a time into the chocolate, then lay flat on the parchment paper.  Put 2 mini chocolate chips on as eyes & allow the cookies to set.  My 4 year old was the perfect helper, she put the eyes on the ghosts & goblins while I dipped then in the chocolate.  Really, kids could dip cookies too.  The chocolate doesn't get too hot making this the ultimate kid friendly activity.
Let the cookies set on the parchment paper before you plate them.  I didn't time it, but probably 10-15 minutes.  You can leave the toothpicks in them & serve like little lollipops or take them out. 
Happy Halloween!!
