Nutter Butters - You can also use peanut butter cookies. The goal is to get the shape of the ghost.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It is large enough that you can dip the Nutter Butters without getting chocolate all over your hands. Make sure to use a microwave-safe bowl.
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides. They keep everything contained making it really easy to get everything cleaned up.
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to help make clean-up a breeze. You can also use wax paper.

I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.

Step 2 - Melt candy melting wafers/almond bark in 30-second intervals making sure to stir after every interval.
