Almond Bark covered Twinkies for Halloween

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I would show you this super cute kid friendly Halloween treat, that you can easily make at home – GHOST TWINKIES!

Around any holiday, I love making dessert crafts with the kids. These are crafts that are edible too! The kids love making and then we all love enjoying them together as a family!

Also, most of them are easy no bake recipe, so you can make them and then just minutes later enjoy them together.

Here are a few other dessert crafts that we love making for Halloween!

The kids just love them! They are so easy to make and the kids had a blast making them with me. It’s a win-win when the kids help out in the kitchen.

Plus this recipe is super easy to double or triple, so it’s get to make for a party too!

Easy Halloween Treats for kids:

Whether you’re making these as an after school snack or for a Halloween Treat, everyone is going to love them!

Twinkies are good by themselves, but when you add an extra touch for Halloween, they’re even better! Halloween Ghost decorated food is a must for every Halloween, too!


  • Twinkies (one per kid)
  • Candy Eyes (I bought mine on Amazon)
  • Almond Bark (melt one rectangle per two Twinkies) If you do not have Almond Bark, you can use white chocolate candy melts instead.

How to make Twinkies look like ghosts:

  1. First, melt several almond bark rectangles in a double broiler, until the almond bark is completely melted. Stir melted chocolate all together until it is smooth.
  2. Next, unwrap all of your twinkies.
  3. Then, coat your twinkies with the almond bark. I found that the easiest way to do this was to use a cake spatula. Place the chocolate covered twinkies on parchment paper or wax paper to set up.
  4. After the twinkies are covered in almond bark, add two candy eyes
  5. Lastly, allow to cool (the almond bark will harden as it sets).

That’s it! Seriously, they’re that easy to make.

Aren’t these Ghost Twinkies adorable?

Get the kids in the kitchen and start making these together. They would be fun to make at home or to take to your kids’s school.

Now if you don’t want to use almond bark, you can easily use these melting candy or melt some white chocolate chips. Both would be equally delicious!

Also, if you’re unable to find the candy eyes in your area, you can easily use milk chocolate chips for the eyes instead. These chocolate chips will still look like eyes and will taste great too!
