I Did It!!!!

Guess what, guys?????? I did it! I baked! And I didn't kill anyone! It tasted good!! I'm thrilled, as you can tell. :) (See, Oh One I Shall Not Name But Was Texting Earlier? I didn't blow up anything!) So, I got this idea from Pinterest (where else?), partially because it looked really good, and partially because hey, it's kind of hard to screw up Rice Krispies!! So, I'm quite proud of these, what do you think?

Aren't they cute?? I think that they're absolutely adorable. They're also SUPER easy, which is good if you're like me. :) I was a bad blogger and didn't take pictures as I went along, mainly because I was so worried about messing them up, and partially because I sort of-kind of...forgot. Yep, shame on me. Bad girl, bad!!
So here's the procedure for the Frankensteins and Ghosts!

1. Make your basic Rice Krispy recipe, with Rice Krispies, marshmallows, and butter. Yeah, it's bad for you, but oh well. Yum! :)
2. Split the recipe into two bowls. Leave the bowl for the ghosts alone, and add some green dye to the Frankenstein bowl. Or in my case, lots of green dye. It's so fun! Be careful though, or it will end up all over your floor. Not that I'm speaking from experience or anything.
3. Time to shape the Rice Krispies. Round the ghosts into a kind of oval-ghosty shape. Yep, I made that a word. Next, put your Frankenstein mix into a rectangular pan, and cut it into smaller rectangle shapes. Just a word of advice, spray some Pam onto your hands before you shape the ghosts and Frankensteins so that the mix doesn't stick to your hands. And above all, DO NOT BREATHE IN THE PAM! Again, not speaking from personal experience. At. All. 
4. Let the shapes set for a little while. Enjoy some time to do NOTHING! :D Yes, I just gave you permission to do nothing. You're welcome.
5. Time to melt the chocolate! I melted the white chocolate first, and then spread it around on the ghosts. It was SUPER simple, for which I was eternally grateful. The Frankensteins were a bit more complicated, but not extremely difficult. I just dipped the top of the Frank's head into the milk chocolate, then dragged a fork through it to make it scraggly looking. Again, not too difficult! Yay!
6. Time for eyes! On the ghosts, I just put two little chocolate chips on for eyes, and for the Franks, I used candy eyeballs attached with some leftover white chocolate. Easy!
7. At this point, the ghosts are finished. All that's left to do for the Franks is the mouth. I put some leftover chocolate into a Baggie, cut a *tiny* hole, and squeezed it into the shape I wanted. So simple! 
8. Aaaaaaand...you're done! Enjoy your delicious Rice Krispy treats! Put them on sticks, eat them all in the next ten minutes...it's now up to you! ;D

So, I'm really happy with how they turned out! If you guys try this recipe, let me know how it goes! Now, I'm off to eat a Frankenstein! Or should I eat a ghost? Decisions, decisions....
