Crispy Ghosts

How cute are these ghosts? We had a blast making them! Okay, who am I kidding? Maybe not a blast... quite honestly, it was a pain in the butt trying to get the ghosts formed, but at least we enjoyed putting the faces on them!


1 10-ounce bag of marshmallows
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons/1/2 stick) margarine or butter
6 cups crisp rice cereal
12 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating, melted

Black licorice candy Chocolate sprinkles Miniature semisweet chocolate pieces


1. In a large pot, combine marshmallows and margarine. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is melted. Gradually stir in cereal until well combined.

2. Use 1/2 to 1 cup of the cereal mixture per ghost to form into ghost shapes. Set aside to cool completely.

3. Dip each ghost shape into melted candy coating. Use pieces of licorice, chocolate sprinkles, and/or chocolate pieces for the eyes, nose, eyebrows, and mouth.

Look at that determination...

...and the pride (but not the dried treats/candy on his face!)

Makes 9 to 12 ghosts.
