Grown-Up Ghosts Recipe

These not-so-scary ghosts from our Test Kitchen are hauntingly delicious. But watch out—they could disappear faster than you can say, "Boo!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 ounces white baking chocolate, melted and cooled

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add white chocolate, lime juice and peel; mix well. Set aside.
  • 2. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into cream cheese mixture.
