Aurélia Beaupommier is a passionate reader of wonderful and fantastic literature, a gourmet cook, and a mom, too. As a teen, she climbed in a barrel of apples with Jim Hawkins, found the Three Musketeers and the One Ring, met Lucy and Aslan during a Midsummer Night’s Dream at Starfleet, and later fell in love with Inkheart and the Harry Potter universe. After working for several years as a librarian in France, she couldn’t decide between cooking and reading so she decided to write a cookbook based on fantastical worlds. She now lives with her family in Normandy, in a secret place near the beach where there are “family, books, friends, and flowers.”

The "Ghostbusters" team spends a lot of time chasing after Slimer, the gelatinous green ghost who leaves disgusting traces of green slime wherever he goes. This extraordinary eater happens to be drawn to the delicacies of a New York food truck, allowing the "Ghostbusters" to defeat him and “paint the town green.”

Put on your protective glasses and break the chocolate into small pieces.

Find a bowl with no slime on it and use it to mix the flour, salt, and baking powder together. In a separate bowl, more or less ionized, beat together the butter and brown sugar until the mixture is a pale golden color and mousse-like. Then add the egg and mix again. Pour this mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients, stir everything together, and add the chocolate.

Use your favorite ectoplasm spoon and drop small balls of dough gently onto the parchment paper, taking care to leave enough space between each one to allow them to spread 2 inches (5 cm).

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, cool for 15 minutes, then devour and send the ghosts back where they came from.
