Happy and Healthy Black Halloween Ghosts


  • Peanut Butter Balls
  • 1 cup peanut butter (or any nut butter will also be great)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 1 - 2 Tbsp coconut flour, as needed
  • ⅓ - ½ cup rice crisp cereal (not puffed rice)

  • Chocolate
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ - 1 Tbsp coconut oil

  • candy eyes (I found mine at a local craft store)


  • Peanut Butter Balls
  • In a large bowl, mix the peanut butter and maple syrup vigorously, for 30-60 seconds, until the mix thickens.
  • If the dough is thick enough to shape into balls, skip the coconut flour. (If the dough is too sticky or runny, add a tbsp of coconut flour and combine)
  • The coconut flour will absorb moisture, so allow the dough to sit for a minute or so before deciding if a bit more coconut flour is needed
  • If you happen to go too far with the coconut flour and your dough becomes too dry, add a bit of maple syrup and mix again
  • Add the crispy cereal, using your hands to knead it into the dough
  • Shape the dough into 18-20 balls (using ~ 1 Tbsp of dough per ball)

  • Chocolate
  • In the top of a double boiler, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil
  • Melt over low heat, stirring frequently until smooth

  • Ghosts
  • With a fork or toothpick, dip the balls into the melted chocolate.
  • Place the ball onto a plate or cutting board lined with parchment. Repeat for the rest.
  • Save any leftover melted chocolate for drizzling on top of the ghosts
  • Gently add their eyes
  • Place balls in the freezer for 10-15 minutes until they've mostly set
