I’m SO looking forward to creating fun memories with my boys this school year. One way I like to do that is with after school adventures and great after school treats.
Back to School Ghostbusters Slime Cookie Ball trufflesToday I’m so excited to share this fun (and easy) Ghosbusters inspired treat… our Ghostbusters Green Slime Cookie Truffles.

Do you remember the old Ghosbusters movie? I’m SO excited for the new one. It’s in theaters now and I’m looking forward to seeing it soon. When I got this opportunity, I knew immediately that I would do something with slime (ectoplasm)! Not only is it fun and colorful, but it takes me back to my childhood.

Back to School Ghostbusters Slime Cookie Ball truffles (1 of 15)As usual, my recipe is simple and something anyone can make. You can whip this together in less than 20 minutes and it only takes five ingredients.

Back to School Ghostbusters Slime Cookie Ball trufflesIngredients

  • 8-10 store-bought chocolate chip cookies (cereal and other flavors of cookies work well too)
  • 1/3 brick of cream cheese
  • White candy coating or white chocolate chips
  • 30-40 M&M’s® Milk in green
  • Green slime icing-I used store-bought clear green icing, but you can make it homemade too.

Directions

Back to School Ghostbusters Slime Cookie Ball truffles (2 of 15)1. Place cookies in a blender or food processor. If you don’t have one, a zip bag and a rolling pin will do the trick. Pulse until all cookies are crumbs.
