4 tablespoons of evaporated milk
3 cups confectioners' sugar
Black or red string licorice
Measure the milk into the bowl then add the sugar slowly using a
fork to mix it in until
all the sugar has been added. It will be thick and you will be able
to knead it with your hands. Knead it until the mixture is very
smooth and easy to work with, like play dough.
Tear off bits of the mixture and shape into little ghost shapes. Cut
bits of the licorice to use as eyes and mouths. Chill.
Makes about 10 ghosts depending upon how big you make them. This can
also be rolled out and cut with cookie cutters.
