This Halloween, let your cake rest in pieces--mixed with frosting and coated in white chocolate, of course--to form Ghost Truffles!

These tricked-out treats are a festive variation on cake truffles, dressed up to look like ghosts for Halloween. Use whatever flavor of cake and frosting you'd like, or even crumbled up brownies--the generous coating of white chocolate with simply decorated ghoulish faces are what give these treats their signature look. Lined up on a plate, they make a perfect party treat for a costume party!
