Ghostly Treats


1/4 cup margarine
4 cups mini marshmallows
5 cups Rice Krispies

30 mini chocolate chips
15 colorful popsicle sticks
15 circular pieces of waxed paper (~11.5 inch diameter)
15- 6 inch pieces of ribbon

Place the rice krispies into a large bowl; set aside.  In a medium sauce pan melt the margarine and marshmallows just until melted.  If you cook longer it will result in harder treats.  Stir in rice krispies.  Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.  Form mixture into 15 balls (~1/3 cup each).  Stick two mini chocolate chips onto each ball forming eyes then insert a popsicle stick in the bottom.  Place a piece of waxed paper over each ball and gather at the base.  Tie each ghost closed with a ribbon. 


*The inspiration for this idea came from my other half.  I think he should re-consider his career path!
