You only need a few store-bought ingredients and five minutes to make this easy—and frightfully cute—"Ghosts In a Jar" Halloween dessert from caterer-to-the-stars Mary Giuliani. No baking required! 

You can find candy eyes at Target and Michaels and pastry glue (aka edible adhesive) at Michaels and Amazon

PS: Mary's team recently announced her mail-order business "Love, Mary," which launches November 2, but is available for pre-order right now. Rach calls it "a party in a box" and Mary's greatest hits, such as Pastrami On Rye Tarts and Everything Pigs In a Pie, are packed up and frozen, ready to be popped into an oven to make entertaining at home as easy and delicious as any Mary Giuliani event. 


  • Pastry glue
  • Candy eyes
  • Mini-marshmallows
  • Mason jars with lids
  • Chocolate pudding


Using pastry glue, adhere candy eyes onto marshmallows to make "ghosts." Open up each mason jar and fill three-quarters of the way with pudding. Arrange marshmallow ghosts on top with eyes facing up, then seal the jars.
