Coconut Butter Covered Strawberry Ghosts

Looking for a last-minute spooky treat that’s healthy and easy to make? You’ve come to the right place! It doesn’t get much easier than these strawberry ghosts for a Halloween treat. They’re simple and fun to make and are made with ingredients that you likely already have on hand. Plus, they’re a healthy alternative to Halloween candy if you’re looking to add a more wholesome option.

The Ingredients for the Coconut Butter Covered Strawberry Ghosts

  • Fresh strawberries. You definitely want to use fresh, and not frozen strawberries here.
  • Coconut butter. I like to use this brand! 
  • Shredded coconut. You’ll want to use fine shredded coconut
  • Chocolate chips & mini chocolate chips.

How to make Coconut Butter Covered Strawberry Ghosts

  • Set up a station with all of the ingredients in separate bowls. 
  • Decorate. Dip a strawberry in the coconut butter, covering it up to the stem. Next, roll the strawberry in the shredded coconut to evenly coat. Press the mini chocolate chips in to the strawberry to make eyes, and the larger chocolate chip to make a mouth. Dip the chocolate chips in coconut butter to help them stick if needed. Set the strawberry on the parchment and repeat for all of the strawberries.
  • Chill. Place the strawberries in the fridge for 30 minutes to set and serve chilled!

What’s the best way to melt coconut butter?

The best way to melt coconut butter is definitely with a double boiler! It can easily burn in the microwave. If you don’t own a double boiler, you can easily use this method to melt the coconut butter and coconut oil together!

How do you store these strawberries?

You definitely want to keep them chilled to keep the coconut butter from melting. I suggest storing them in the fridge in a glass container.

How long do these strawberries stay fresh?

They’re definitely best eaten within a few hours, but you can save them for the next day as well!
