  3. Stir until the marshmallows are melted.
  4. Add in your cereal.
  5. Stir until it is all mixed thoroughly.
  6. Put your mixture in a 13 x 9 grease dish.
  7. Using a greased spoon or your hand with a bit of non-stick spray, press your treats into the pan.
  8. Allow to cool before cutting out your ghosts. I just used a cookie cutter to cut the ghosts out.
