Kids Will Love This Alien Rice Krispie Pop Recipe

Rice Krispie pops are a great treat for your kids. By shaping them like alien faces and dying them green, you'll be able to turn this age-old food into a Halloween delicacy. This is a great item to put into your child's lunch on Halloween, if they'll be going to school that day. If not, give it to them with their lunch at home.

Making your own Rice Krispie treats isn't too difficult. Make sure you take your time and pay attention to all of the steps. Missing a step or making a mistake could be costly. Don't worry too much if you make a mistake; simply walk it back and try again.

This recipe will make 12 pops each time. If you'll need more than that, you can easily repeat the recipe or double it. These are a great treat to pass out on Halloween, if you want to do something different than ordinary candy for once. Wrap each pop in clear plastic and tie it shut with either orange or black ribbon. Using a clear plastic baggie is a good idea, since that way your trick-or-treaters can see what they're getting.
