Instructions
  1. For the rice krispie treats
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. For the white chocolate topping
  7. 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.
  8. To decorate: Use writing icing or similar to draw on eyes, a scary face, or a friendly face!
