The cutest little Halloween Ghost Rice Krispie Pops! Easy, no bake and a perfect Halloween treat to make with kids! Make them scary or friendly!
It’s getting closer and closer to Halloween… have you decided what treats to make yet? I’ve got pumpkins on my mantlepiece, apple cinnamon candles burning, and last night I even convinced Lee to watch Practical Magic with me! He described it as ‘not good, but watchable’. I’d describe it as ‘awesome’ and definitely in my top three halloween films, along with Hocus Pocus and Scream. And I will never stop wanting to live in this house. I want it to be a real house so bad!
These Halloween Ghost Rice Krispie Pops are sooo cute! They’re an easy no-bake treat for Halloween, made from a marshmallow rice krispie mixture with a white chocolate topping. Best of all, they taste really yummy too!
They couldn’t be simpler to make either, all the ingredients are ones that you probably have in your cupboard right now!
I think this is just the perfect Halloween treat to make with kids. There’s no cooking involved, just a bit of melting in the microwave. You can make them as scary or as friendly looking as you like when you decorate them. Kids would love icing funny faces on too! I used writing icing to give my ghosties red eyes, so it’s as simple as can be.
The perfect no-bake treat for an autumn day or Halloween party!
- For the rice krispie treats
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 20 white marshmallows, or 4 cups / 200g mini marshmallows
- 160g / 6 cups rice krispies
- 150g / just under a cup white chocolate
- To decorate
- Writing icing or royal icing, if you prefer
- For the rice krispie treats
- Alright! You're not going to believe how easy it is to make these! First, prepare a 8x8" pan by greasing the bottom and sides with vegetable oil and set aside.
- Simply combine your butter and marshmallows in a large heat proof bowl and heat in the microwave. Heat on 30 second intervals, stirring vigorously in between, until the marshmallows are completely melted and you're left with marshmallow goo. Stir in your rice krispies and pour the whole lot into your tin. Push down firmly until they're evenly compacted - I like to use a spatula greased with vegetable oil to do this. Let them firm up for 15 minutes on the countertop.
- Next, take a vaugely ghost shaped cookie cutter (I used a bell shape) and use it to cut out segments of rice krispie treat. Get them as close to each other as possible so you can get lots of ghosts! Sadly, you'll need to eat the excess rice krispie treats...
- Set your ghost shapes on a flat surface or cookie tray lined with parchment paper, and smush them into a more ghostly shape. Stick in your lolly stick - it will seem like the treats want to fall apart, but the great thing is that they're so sticky, so it's easy to mould them back into shape. Leave to set for another hour.
- For the white chocolate topping
- Melt your white chocolate in the microwave, on 15 second bursts, stirring between each interval, until fully liquid. I used a palette knife (you could also use the back of a tablespoon) to drizzle and spread white chocolate onto my ghosts, or you could also dip them into the chocolate. Allow the chocolate to cool and set.
- To decorate: Use writing icing or similar to draw on eyes, a scary face, or a friendly face!
As well as the ingredients to make the treats, you’ll also need some lolly sticks and a vaugely ghost shaped cookie cutter to make these. I used a bell cutter – I love how easy it is to repurpose them to other uses! If you don’t already have a bell cutter, this set is great value!
Pin it for later
Don’t forget to tag your ghosts #kerrycooks on Instagram if you make these – I’d love to see how your ghosts turn out!
