Ghost Poop





Introduction: Ghost Poop

It was a dark and stormy Halloween night.  The house was creaking and the chandeliers gently swayed in the draft.  An unworldly sensation brushed past my arm as I heard a haunted chuckle.  I turned to see where the sound might have come from and spotted a small, eerily glowing mass in the shadows. I turned my flashlight on it to discover several small mounds that could only reveal the recent passing of a ghost.  Just to be sure, I popped one in my mouth.  It was delicious.  The ghost had eaten well that day.

Discover the magical powers of ghost poop!  Serve your own delicious mounds of ghost poop at your next Halloween party and dare your guests to stop at just one!

Step 1:

Step 2:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/3 cup cold water to soften.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, dissolve granulated sugar in 1/4 cup water, stirring.
  3. Brush inside edges of pan with water to remove sugar crystals and boil until the temperature reaches the soft-ball stage (238 degrees F) on a candy thermometer - do not stir, or you will create large sugar crystals.
  4. Slowly drizzle mixture in to bowl of gelatin and whisk on medium speed for 3 min.
  5. Increase speed to high and whisk until soft peaks form, 8 to 10 min.

Step 3:

Transfer ghost poop goo to a piping bag fitted with a large round tip or a plastic baggie and snip off the end.
Pipe into mounds on silicone sheet or parchment.

If left out, poop will become crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
If kept in a sealed container, ghost poop will remain soft and gooey throughout.

One packet of gelatin was not 2 3/4 teaspoons, so I measured out enough from a second packet and added it to the water. By the time the sugar was ready, the gelatin had turned into a lump of rubber, and when I tried to mix it, it broke my mixer when it went through the blades.

Just the title made me laugh. Thanks.

This is awesome. Very funny story.

I have done these over the years. Forgotten cookies.

For smooth white poop, leave out the nuts and chocolate. They are great just like that, but for heavenly taste, use pecans and chocolate chips. They are called "forgotten" because you can throw them in the oven, turn it off, and leave them overnight. For a party in a couple of hours, follow the directions.

They're magically delicious! Great idea!

any subsitution for a piping bag?
