Krispie Rice Cereal Ghost Pops

A childhood favourite can be easily transformed into a delicious Halloween treat.

Two days until Halloween and we've officially scared the neighbour. She came to the door to fetch her daughter and one of our decorations swung in the wind and scared her to death. She went home and called me instead, LOL. I'm hoping the trick-or-treaters aren't too scared to come to the door!

The kids are having Halloween parties at school on Friday. Though I'd love to send some of these cute little guys with them, I've decided to go the healthy route and send fruit. After Mr.B's teacher being so happy about fruit last year, I decided it's probably a good option. I made these cute Rice Krispie Pops for the Monster High Party, Queenie and I hosted earlier this month. They were quick easy and oh so cute. These would be a great treat to send to school, or even for an impromptu Halloween party, on Friday night.

Krispie Rice Cereal Ghost Pops

One batch of Rice Krispie Squares (recipe below)
1 1/2 C white melting chocolate
candy eye balls
Black Wilton Sparkle Gel

Cut the Rice Krispie Treats into two inch wide rectangles. Insert a lollipop stick into the center, and set aside.

In a large coffee mug, melt the chocolate, in the microwave; using 30 second intervals.

Dip 2/3 of the pop in the melted chocolate, gently shaking off any excess. Place on a parchment lined baking tray. Quickly place the candy eyeballs; two per ghost. Repeat with remaining pops. Place in the freezer to set.

Once chocolate is set, draw a spooky mouth, using the black sparkle gel.

Rice Krispies Treats

3 Tbs butter
1 pkg (10 oz) large marshmallows (about 40)
4 C miniature marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal

In a large saucepan melt the butter. Add in the marshmallows and stir until melted. Add in the vanilla and remove from heat.

Add Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal and stir to coat completely.

Using buttered hands, press the mixture into a buttered 13x9 inch baking dish. Let cool to room temperature before cutting.
