I ADORE Halloween for a couple reasons. First, the weather is (usually) pinch-me fabulous. I get to wear booties, toss on a scarf, and take in the cooler breeze. Second, this “holiday” embraces silly like no other. I LOVE silly! Silly lets your creativity go wild, lets you laugh at yourself, lets you dress up like your favorite movie character, and it lets you make little rice crispy bars that look like ghosts. Silly is the most fun and I do my best to embody it all year long.

During Halloween, though, we get to take silly to a whole new, bold level. Our silly boldness is coming to the surface today in the shape of these so-dang-cute Rice Crispy Ghost Bars! YES they’re gluten-free but no, not in any stretch of the imagination, are they Paleo. When it comes to treats, which I enjoy about once in a blue moon (or should I say spooky, mystical full Halloween moon?), my priorities are this: they need to be gluten-free (one of my biggest food triggers) and I’d like them to be made with the best options of what’s available. Think: organic sugar, rice crispy cereal with fewer ingredients, butter made from grass-fed cow’s milk, and better-ingredient chocolate.

Rice crispy treats ALSO happen to be my favorite sweet treat on the face of this earth. If you put a warm chocolate souffle and a rice crispy treat in front of me, there would still be no contest. I’m a rice crispy girl all the way.

In an effort to really tip my hat at this beloved silly holiday, we worked to bring you a better-for-you rice crispy treat! These ghost bars are a breeze to make, so tasty, and so silly. I hope you enjoy!

Note: if you’d rather make these bars without white chocolate, you could try melting cocoa butter with a little honey.

    Love these! Rice Crispy bars are my favorite, too! I made a batch of these to take to my life group tonight, and just made them smaller so I would have more, and since there are so many little ones there. Just the right sized treat for everyone.

    I want to make these, but I don’t have a microwave. Any suggestions on melting the marshmellows and butter? Thanks
