Ghost Cookies
Trapper Trails Council

6 ounces vanilla flavored almond bark
15 1/2 ounce package Nutter Butter cookies
Small black jelly beans (or purple)

Melt almond bark following package directions. Dip 2/3 of each cookie in melted candy. Shake gently to remove excess coating. Place on wire rack with waxed paper underneath. For eyes cut jelly beans in half and place on cookies. Cool completely before removing from rack.

Chocolate Spiders
Trapper Trails Council

12 ounces Twizzlers, chocolate flavor
4 ounces milk chocolate cany melts

Cut twizzlers into 1 1/2" pieces. Slice each piece in half lengthwise. On waxed paper place 4 legs (pieces) on each side and then drop 1 teaspoon melted candy in the middle for the body. Use a toothpick to smooth uniform circle and connect all candy pieces. Cool completely before removing from the waxed paper.

Suggestion from Chris-- Almond or chocolate bark can typically be found in the aisle with cake making supplies in your grocery store. I also found it at Wal-Mart. You can also buy candy melts (basically the same thing, different shape, little higher cost) at cake and candy supply stores and craft stores. Call your local store to see who has it. I always melt the bark on low (Power level 3) of my microwave in a glass pie pan. It takes a little bit longer, but the bark will melt smoothly, without lumps. If you don't have a microwave, an electric skillet with water in the bottom can be used. Set the control at the lowest heat possible. Experiment, but I remember from candy-making classes I took years ago, that melting candy bark or melts is best done at low temperatures.
