Mini Ghost Pastries with a Sweet Surprise!

Mini Ghost Pastries with a Chocolate Surprise!

I‘m super duper excited to share this cute, Halloween recipe with y’all! It’s sweet, easy, and aren’t the ghosts cute? They’re made with the new Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry Cups which makes it easy to create these little spookies. Best part? The little cups can hold a sweet surprise! You can tailor these ghosts to your favorite flavors. I chose a chocolate center but here are a few other ideas: caramel, chopped candy bars, truffle filling, white chocolate, and more! These little ghosts remind me of s’mores with the chocolate and marshmallow – yum!

Halloween Ghost Cups - EASY and CUTE!
Here’s how to make these cute ghosts!
