20 Halloween DIY Ideas

Ghost Halloween Rice Krispies Treat

Rice Krispie Squares are a favourite at our house, and such an easy dessert with simple ingredients, so I thought it would be fun to make some special ones for Halloween rice krispies treats. These would be great for a Halloween parties, or classroom celebrations, or so much fun tucked in a lunch box for a special treat. They’re quite easy peasy to make, and the kids can help out too.

Simple Ingredients

I also love that Rice Krispie cereal treats only have a few ingredients, and they’re pretty much foolproof. Who doesn’t love easy halloween treats? They also seem to be everyone’s favorite recipe for a no-bake dessert. Pick up everything you need for these fun treats at your local grocery store, and have the ingredients in your pantry to make these crispy treats for the whole Halloween season. Wilton candy melts work well for the chocolate coating, you can find them in the baking aisle at a craft or baking specialty store. Or you can also use white chocolate chips.

No Need For Cookie Cutters

These ghost rice krispies are easy to make without cookie cutters. We used regular rice krispies in a rectangle shape and trimmed them into little ghosts.  But if you have a ghost-shaped cookie cutter that you love, feel free to use it instead.

Make Them Lollipops

We used popsicle sticks for our ghost rice krispies treats, but another great option is to use a lollipop stick, or leave them plain with no sticks

Thinning The Chocolate

We used white chocolate melts for our rice krispie treat ghosts.  If you find that the melted chocolate is too thick to dip easily, try adding in a little bit of coconut oil, or vegetable shortening to make it a little runnier.  Don’t add too much at a time though, as you don’t want to end up making the melted white chocolate too runny, 


The layer of white chocolate coating on these festive halloween rice krispie treats will also make them last a little while longer -that is if you can keep people from eating them! Store these fun halloween treats in an airtight container at room temperature for the best results. Or wrap these cute halloween treats in plastic wrap or individual cellophane bags for holiday treats.

  4. Once cool, cut the rice krispies into small rectangles.
  5. To create the ghosts, use a sharp knife to cut the edges of the top of a rectangle to make it into a ghost shape. .Or, if you have one you could use a ghost cookie. Then insert a popsicle stick into the ghost shapes.
