I wouldn’t be surprised if Nutter Butter ghosts existed before my post, but I’m not going to check because then I’d be all disappointed. And who needs disappointment on Taco Tuesday?

The best part about these Nutter Butter ghosts is how ridiculously easy they are to make. You could make them even easier by using food coloring markers instead of decorating gel like I did on those crazy onesie cake pops.
