Ghost Rice Krispie Pops

Boo! Happy October!  Halloween is just a few weeks away.  Want a fun, easy, adorable, and delicious spooky treat idea?  Today, I'm going to tell you how to make Ghost Rice Krispie Pops!  Don't be scared, these are the friendliest ghosts around, just like Casper!

Here's what you need:

Rice Krispie Treats
White Chocolate chips
Lollipop Sticks
Clear wrappers
Twist ties


Whip up a batch of Rice Krispie Treats from scratch, or do it my way, and buy the individually wrapped and already made Rice Krispie Treats.  This way you can unwrap, cut, and dip!

Either way, cut a square Rice Krispie Treat into a square shape.  Then, round off the top edges to resemble a ghost.  Just cut two little triangles on the two top corners, smoothing the edges so it's a nice, round shape.  You can even cut different shapes, by cutting the top two corners, keeping a sharp edge, to resemble a grave shape.

Then, pour about 1 cup per 3 ghosts of white chocolate chips.  Melt the chips either on the stovetop or microwave.  I ended up microwaving them for 2 minutes today, stopping the timer and stirring a few times in between.

Make sure your Rice Krispies are prepared before you melt the white chocolate chips because you have to dip them fast before the chocolate hardens.  Then, take each Rice Krispie Treat, dip it in the chocolate until it covers a little over 1/2 of the treat on both sides.  

Then, take two circle sprinkles, I used blue this time, as the eye and place them in the center of the treat, close together, for two spooky eyes.  Make sure you do this before the chocolate hardens as well.

Next, let them sit for about 10 minutes to completely harden.  Stick the lollipop stick right in the middle of the bottom of the treat.  Push it in enough so the stick is secure and will hold up the ghost.

Then, take the clear wrapper, bought from any craft store, stuff the pop inside, then use the twisty tie to hold it all together.  And voila, you've got the cutest little edible ghosts!

These are perfect for a Halloween party favor, a fun craft to do with your kids, and even a great treat for Trick-or-Treaters.  Kids will love them!  Enjoy!  Happy Halloween!
