Ghostly Treats

The other day Amelia and I made some ghostly Rice Krispie treats for Halloween. She helped count marshmallows and measured the cups of Rice Krispies. Oh, and she ate a few marshmallows and chocolate chips, too! Every kitchen needs a little quality control, right?
Ghostly Rice Krispie Treats

Step one: Count out 40 large marshmallows or 4 cups of mini marshmallows. Add to 3 tablespoons of melted butter over low heat.

Step two: Measure 6 cups of Rice Krispies. Add to the melted marshmallows and butter. Stir until combined.

Step three: Press into a greased cookie sheet and cut with a ghost cookie cutter. Add chocolate chips for eyes.

Cute, aren't they?

Tip: If you reheat the scraps for 15 seconds in the microwave you can press them into the pan again and cut additional ghosts.

Step four: Enjoy the fruits of your labors. Amelia says this is the best part of cooking. Can't argue with that!

Happy treat making!

Judy, she wears it every time we cook. And if she forgets, she says "Oh no! I forgot my apron!"
