Usually the holiday’s creep up on me every year and they are here before I am ready. This year I decided to get a head start on all of my Halloween snacks, decorations, and of course costume shopping.

To make things easier this year, I have created an Easy Halloween Snack called Ghosts on a Boat. It’s simple to make and so yummy, everyone will ask for more!


Halloween Ghosts on a Boat


I love being creative when making food for my family and I especially like when I can be creative with a quick snack for after school. This is such an easy & tasty after school snack that moms can whip up when the kids get home.

Easy Halloween Snacks Ghosts on a Boat

When I first had the idea to make Halloween Ghosts on a Boat, my cabinets were empty and I was in need of a quick trip to Walmart. I headed for the pudding and yogurt section to pick up my Hershey’s Chocolate Pudding . We love the creamy and rich flavors of the chocolate but mostly love that it’s made with real Hershey’s cocoa.

We also picked up the  Hershey’s S’mores Pudding and I think this is a new favorite snack for my family. I suggest picking up this flavor once and you will be hooked! You can also pick up an All You Magazine to get a $0.55 off Hershey‘s pudding coupon which will be released on 9/18.

All you need to make this Easy Halloween Snack is Graham Crackers, Mini Marshmallows, Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding, and a tube of black icing.

Start with a full graham cracker and break it into four pieces. This is super hard sometimes because the cracker wants to crumble when pressure is applied. I have found that if you use a sharp steak knife right at the crease, it will break evenly.

Scoop out about a tablespoon of Hershey’s Ready to Eat Pudding, and spread it onto the graham crackers.

Draw faces on your marshmallows before adding them to the “boats”. If your icing is thin enough you will not even have to squeeze the tube, just place it on the spots you want black dots, the marshmallow soaks it up like a sponge.

Finally, place the marshmallow ghosts on to the boats and your easy snack is ready to enjoy! There are so many great ideas and crafty inspirations on Check it out and let me know your favorite!

My ghost and halloween loving bestie would LOVE these! I'm totally in it for the s'mores pudding cups though! These sound absolutely delicious!

My kids would think these are so fun. What a cute Halloween treat idea. I think this would be a really fun treat to take in for my kids Halloween classroom party. And I had no idea they even made smore's pudding. I am going to have to find this for sure!

OMG, too cute!! Perfect blend of adorableness, ease of making, and yummy flavors and textures. (reminds me of a s'mores) Also love the size of the treats - just right for tiny hands, and relatively bite-sized (unlike, say, caramel apples which are an awesome concept but such a messy idea to implement). Love the snack you made!

xo, lauriel of
