Rice Krispies Ghouls

For Halloween last year, one of my friends was throwing a party, and I wanted to bring something really fun and unusual. All I had in my pantry was a box of cocoa rice krispies cereal, so I came up with an idea to make little ghouls. Fun to look at, and tasty to eat. 🙂

3 tablespoons  butter or margarine
1 package (10 oz.) regular marshmallows
6 cups cocoa rice krispies cereal
flaked coconut
canned frosting or decorating gel
green food coloring
white chocolate chips

cooking spray
cupcake cups

1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add cocoa rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using a 1/2 cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray, divide warm cereal mixture into portions. Using buttered hands, shape each portion into a ghoul shape. Cool and place into cupcake cups. Decorate tops and bottoms with flaked coconut.
4. Use frosting to attach white chocolate chips for ghoul eyes. Use green food coloring to dot the tips of the chips.

12 servings

Now you have a whole army of ghouls.

Enjoy! And Happy Halloween!
