Our 8th “Countdown to Halloween: Frightfully Fun Family Movie Night” presents…”The Nightmare Before Christmas”, which I’d never seen before. Very interesting. I think I like the light and firework show better at Disneyland than I do the movie. But I thought it would be sooo fun to wear my Jack Skellington shirt (that I bought at Target for next week’s Disneyland trip) while I served Jack Skellington pops (white chocolate dipped Rice Krispies). They got a kick out of it and gave me just the reaction I was looking for 🙂
Make your Rice Krispie recipe like you normally do (here is the recipe) and then instead of putting them in a pan, take your black and white striped paper straw (cut in half) and shape it in a circle at on end. Set on wax paper and let cool and harden a little. Next, dip them carefully into your melted white chocolate baking chips. You might need to take a spoon and spoon the chocolate all over the round Rice Krispies ball. Let that dry and harden on the wax paper. Then, use a black gel icing tube from your grocery store to draw the eyes and nostrils and crazy mouth to create your Jack Skellington face. Add a cute black grosgrain ribbon with white stitching to the bottom of his face to make a little bow (like his bow tie). Bam! You’re done. It REALLY is very easy. Don’t get overwhelmed by it’s cuteness!
