Even though us Slovenians have our own carnival at the end of winter, with masks, candy, doughnuts and trick-or-treating, we’ve really embraced Halloween too.

I’ve always loved the holiday because of all the movies made around it. And I love to make homemade Halloween candy too, like these white chocolate ghost lollipops.

Making your own chocolate ghosts couldn’t be simpler. All you need to do is melt some white chocolate with coconut oil (or other neutral oil). Then you just play around making ghost shapes on parchment paper.

You’re really making smudges of white chocolate. But once you add sprinkles, the ghosts suddenly get a face and you get a homemade chocolate ghost lollipop.

I also like to make chocolate mummies. They’re very similar to ghosts. You just need to make bigger circular shapes, then add ribbons of white chocolate to get that mummy look.

Prep 10 minutes
Cook 10 minutes
Chill 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 25


  • 18 oz white chocolate roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil like coconut or vegetable oil
  • chocolate sprinkles


  • Line a baking sheet, or a few plates, with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Place the chocolate and oil in a heatproof bowl and place it over a saucepan of barely simmering water, but don't let the bowl touch the water.
  • As some of the chocolate melts at the bottom, stir it with a spatula. Stir again as more chocolate melts, and so on until it almost completely melts. Remove the bowl from heat and allow the residual heat to melt the rest of the chocolate. After a few minutes, give it one last stir, making sure it's smooth.
Make ghosts:
  • To make ghosts, take a heaping tablespoon of chocolate and pour it on the baking sheet in one spot, then swipe down to get a ghost-like shape (or smudge).
  • Take a skewer, dip it in the melted chocolate then place it on the ghost by gently pushing it in, about halfway up. Lastly, put 2 sprinkles onto each ghost, to make tiny eyes.
  • Continue with the rest of the chocolate to make as many ghosts as you wish.
  • Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or more. Once properly chilled the chocolate will be hard. Peel the lollipops off the baking sheet and place them on a plate, divide each layer of lollipops with parchment paper. Keep in the refrigerator.


You can use chocolate chips instead of whole chocolate bars. 
Instead of using chocolate sprinkles for eyes, you can also buy eye shaped sprinkles to make funnier ghosts.
