Halloween Ghost Peep S'mores

Only 4 more days left until Halloween, so I have another Halloween recipe to post. I saw these cute little Halloween Ghost S'mores posted on Pinterest a couple months back.I knew as soon as I saw these that I had to make them. I'm so glad I pinned these to my pin board so I wouldn't forget.

I was thinking these would make a cute addition to the Halloween Treats that I'm putting together for some of the neighborhood kids. Since we will be out trick or treating and not giving out candy I wanted to make sure to have some fun treat bags to give the kids before we head out.

I also plan on making two kinds of cookies and adding some candy as well. I think everyone will love these spooky little s'more treats. If you're looking for a class treat or teacher gift I think these would be perfect.These s'mores literally cost me next to nothing to make.

The box of graham crackers were under $2, ghost peeps were .98 a package, and the small Hershey bars were $1 for a package of 8. All in all it cost me under $4 to make enough for 8 kiddos.


I got the idea for the bag tags from Christy at Southern Plate. I just adapted them into a Halloween theme. I have included a link for a printable version of the Halloween Smores Tags. You will need two tags per package. One for the front and one for the back.

Walmart use to sell these neat little clear cellophane party favor bags, but have since discontinued them. I don't know why they did that because they were so useful and inexpensive. 

I just used zip lock sandwich bags instead and folded over the zip part so it was under the tag. Then just stapled the tags together and you're done. If you don't want to mess with the tags you can always just tie some Halloween ribbon around the gift sacks instead. It's all up to you.

Of course we had to try a few out to make sure they were edible LOL. We did find out one thing...... S'mores always taste better when bunny ears are involved.





Halloween Ghost Peep S'mores

Cooks Note: I was only able to find the Halloween Peeps at Target. It also depends on what type of Halloween peeps the stores have in stock. Some stores only have the pumpkin peeps and other stores have the ghost peeps. I have fixed the tag so that it reflects "Halloween Peep" in the directions so either peep one can be used.

Just a note- be careful when cooking/roasting the smores. My son's birthday is near Easter, so we did Peep smores this year, one of the girls burnt herself badly enough to blister from the sugar on the smores.

These ARE super adorable though :)

Oh goodness that is awful. Everyone make sure your S'more cools down before eating.

These are so cute! I might have to get these done this weekend!

They are really easy to make and all the kiddos will love them.

We've done 'smeeps' before around Easter time and my kids have tried and tried to make the peeps explode. Never happens, but it sure is fun to microwave them. I think it would be even more fun to watch the ghosts - haven't seen them anywhere though.

I found both the ghost and the pumpkin peeps at Target. Walgreens usually has them as well.

Where is the link to print the "Halloween S'Mores" tag?

Tina Butler said... #

You need to click on the link that says "Halloween Smore Gift Tags. Once you click on the link it will take you to the tags to print. I will add the link here as well.

Made these today as thank you gifts for the rehab staff where my husband was cared for after his heart attack. Tag: There is s'more I want to say, but I'll leave it at "Thank boo!" Used six different Halloween clip art pix, made a long tag, orange ribbon. 10 seconds was enough time in our microwave. Thank BOO for a great idea.

These are fantastic! I am going to make a bunch of these and let my son take them to his classroom Halloween party. What fun a clever treat idea! Thanks for sharing.

Ellen Miller said... #

I looked everywhere for the ghost peeps and finally found them at Michaels. I can't wait to make these treats for my son's classmates.

Just made these last night and I could only find the pumpkin peeps but just as cute! I'm using these as prizes for a BINGO game with the kids at our party. THANK YOU for the GREAT IDEA!!

These are adorable! What a cute idea for the kids I know! (The rest can dive into a bag of Costco candy! LOL We get 300+ kids on Halloween, it's an expensive night.) I'm headed shopping tomorrow, I may have to grab some of these ghosties. Thanks for sharing!

Your Halloween Ghost Peep S'mores are so adorable! I just love them! Pinning! Thanks for the great share!

Thank you for posting this wonderful idea. Never did find the ghost peeps (waited too long), but Kraft puts out small marshmellow ghosts that did the job in a pinch. This idea got 4 thumbs up from my grandchildren. Am handing them out for Halloween and stamping our name and address on the back so parents don't throw them out. Thank you again...just love them.

These look awesome! Can you tell me what to set the microwave at to heat them? I don't want anything blowing up or melting all over! Thanks so much!

You are a complete GENIUS! This is the cutest idea ever. My teen daughter's friends have been begging for desserts coming to school with my daughter for them (I too have a food blog). These are the perfect, unexpected treat to send to school. My project for tonight. I shared a link to your post on my FB page too.

I'm so making the goody bags. If you go to the Peep website, click on Store Locator and it tells you exactly where you can buy the ghost peeps in your area. Worked like a charm ;) thanks for this idea!
