Eat em up Ghosts

Servings: Makes 9 - 12 ghosts
Have fun making different shapes of ghosts and experiment with different candy bits to create a variety of ghastly, ghostly expressions.

What You Will Need:
1 10-ounce bag of marshmallows
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons/1/2 stick) margarine or butter
6 cups crisp rice cereal
12 ounces vanilla-flavored candy coating, melted
Black licorice candy
Chocolate sprinkles
Miniature semisweet chocolate pieces

1. In a large pot, combine marshmallows and margarine. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is melted. Gradually stir in cereal until well combined.

2. Use 1/2 to 1 cup of the cereal mixture per ghost to form into ghost shapes. Set aside to cool completely.

3. Dip each ghost shape into melted candy coating. Use pieces of licorice, chocolate sprinkles, and/or chocolate pieces for the eyes, nose, eyebrows, and mouth.

Makes 9 to 12 ghosts.
