Googly Eye Ghosts – (Makes 18)
*can purchase gelatin caps from health food stores or on-line
Special Equipment Needed:
Cut each rice krispies treat in thirds width wise. Roll each piece of cereal treat into a ball. Insert a lollipop stick into each ball. After you have made your rice krispies treat pops, follow the instructions below to roll out the white modeling chocolate, cutting it into 4 1/2″ rounds. After you have cut a few rounds, proceed (if you cut all of the rounds at once, your modeling chocolate may dry out too much to easily drape over the pops.) Drape one round of modeling chocolate over each pop. I thought about leaving the draped modeling chocolate to hang loose, but decided that in order to keep the rice krispies treat fresher, it would be best to gather the modeling chocolate around the stick, pinching it together gently but still allowing a nice drape. They remind me of the ghosts I used to make out of white tissue paper wrapped around a Tootsie Pop when I was a kid.
If you’d like mouths on the ghosts, use an edible black marker to draw on mouths.
