Krispie Treat Ghosts

Halloween is fast approaching! Isn’t it crazy how time works...wasn’t it just the 4th of July?

Anyhow, with the fall season comes busy days filled with activities, obligations and of course fun. So with the Spooky Holiday just around the corner I thought it would be a great idea to give you a quick treat idea so you won’t be scrambling at the last minute!

These Krispie Ghosts go together in a flash. They’re super adorable and what kid doesn’t like a buttery marshmallow treat?

I whipped up a simple batch of krispie treats and let them cool completely. Then just grab a ghost cookie cutter (or really any cookie cutter you would like, this is such an adaptable treat) and cut out your shapes.

Krispie Treat Ghosts

Do your best to try to use all the krispie treats, so you won’t have many scraps. I mean, scraps are ok in my book for snacking, but you definitely want to get as many ghosts as possible!

Then just melt some white chocolate or candy discs and dip each treat in! You really only have to dip the top!

Use mini chocolate chips for the eyes and the mouth and you’re done! Just make sure to press the chips into the white chocolate before it’s set.

You can serve these as soon as the white chocolate has set…OR you can package them up in clear bags and give them out as treats!

Or even better you can easily insert a lollipop stick into the bottom and make them pops!

So many possibilities!
