Spooky Biscuit Ghosts


These bourbon biscuit ghosts are perfect for trick-or-treaters or the party buffet. They’re simple enough to make with the kids, making them a lovely October half term actvity.


I made these with Rhian on Sunday. We’re going to surprise Caden and Shane with them later on when they return from their weekend with their father.

The bourbons I used were from Tesco and were less than 50p a pack. When you buy bourbons, double check the ingredients to make sure there’s no dairy. As far as I know, there’s no dairy in any own-brand bourbon biscuits, but just to be sure!


The bourbon biscuit ghosts were easy, cheap and definitely spooktacular! To prepare them for trick-or-treaters, gently wrap the biscuits in a paper napkin, securing with some twine. If you can stop yourself from eating them first!




  • Bourbon biscuits
  • White royal icing
  • Black cake decorating pen or something similar
  • Strawberry jam to stick the icing to the biscuit




  1. Warm up some jam on the hob or in the microwave then brush it over your biscuits.
  2. Roll out some of the white icing until it’s quite thin – about 2mm thick will do.
  3. Drape the icing over the biscuits, smoothing out any creases as you go.
  4. Use the decorating pen/icing to put a scary design on top!
  5. Serve just on a plate for a buffet, or wrap individually in a paper or cloth napkin, securing with twine.

Top tips


Did you know that a lot of supermarket bought biscuits are vegan? You could also use variations of rich tea biscuits, digestives, Oreos, Party Rings, Biscoff, fruit shortcake… the list goes on! Make sure you check the label as every brand will be different.

You can easily do different designs by using different colours of icing and a bit of imagination. How about an Oreo pumpkin? Freaky Party Ring eyes?
