How to make Rice Krispie Ghosts

For these ghosts, I simply used a ghost cookie cutter, candy melts, and dark chocolate!

I ended up spooning the white candy melts onto the ghosts. The plan was to dip the tops in the bowl but the ghosts were bigger than the bowl.

For the dark chocolate, I put the melted chocolate into a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in the corner to pipe the eyes onto the ghosts. This makes for a very easy clean-up.

How to make Rice Krispie Ghosts! Easy recipe for your Halloween treats!
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:10 minutes
Total Time:15 minutes


  • 3 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 oz mini marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • Candy Melts – White
  • Dark Chocolate melting wafers or you can use black candy melts as well


  • In a large pot, melt your butter.
  • Once melted, add your vanilla extract and your marshmallows.
  • Stir until the marshmallows are melted.
  • Add in your cereal.
  • Stir until it is all mixed thoroughly.
  • Put your mixture in a 13 x 9 grease dish.
  • Using a greased spoon or your hand with a bit of non-stick spray, press your treats into the pan.
  • Allow to cool before cutting out your ghosts. I just used a cookie cutter to cut the ghosts out.
  • Melt your white candy melts. Spoon over the tops of the ghosts or dip the tops in the candy melts.
  • Once the candy melts had time to cool and harden, melt your dark chocolate or black candy melts.
  • Put your chocolate or black candy melts in a sandwich bag and cut a small hole in one corner. Add the eyes to your ghosts.
  • Allow the eyes to harden before serving.


Amount of treats will depend on the size of your cookie cutter.
