Kids love Rice Krispie treats. You may have made Rice Krispie pumpkins in the past, but have you tried to make ghost treats? They are fun and simple and will be a hit at your party this year!
Don’t take the same snacks to your kids’ school party this year. Take these Halloween Ghost Rice Krispie treats — on a stick — instead!! We’ve made them several times and they are always an absolute hit (and since made with cereal, on the approved snack list as well)!
They are super easy to make. To start, you’ll make Rice Krispie treats according to the original recipe, which you can find on the back of the box or at RiceKrispies.com. Once set, you will dip the top portion in melted white candy melts and add the eyes. The final step is to insert the pop stick into the bottom and you are done!
My kids love it when I make these. It is like a popsicle, but it’s still a Krispie treat. It’s the best of both worlds!Print
