Chocolatey covered rice crispy bars shaped into ice cream moulds and decorated as spooky Halloween “mummy” faces. These crispy pops are so fun to make and are naturally vegan, gluten-free and fun to make with little ones. A peanut butter and syrup rice crispy mix coated in rich, thick dark chocolate all decorated with icing sugar and edible sugar eyes.

Spooky Mummy Rice Crispy Pops
Prep Time: 20 x minutes + cooling
Serves: 16 People
60g smooth peanut or almond butter (or seed butter)
60ml golden syrup
A pinch of salt
60g rice crispies
360g 85% Dark Chocolate
70g icing sugar
Edible sugar eyes
Equipment: ice cream silicon moulds
Place the ice cream bar moulds in the fridge so they are cold.
Melt half of the chocolate and then cover the cold moulds with the chocolate, working your way up the sides. This first time will use about half of this melted chocolate (leave a gap for the popsicle stick). Freeze for 10 minutes then use the rest of this melted chocolate to do a second coat (otherwise the chocolate walls are too thin). Return to the freezer for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt the peanut butter and golden syrup in a large saucepan and stir until smooth. Add in the salt and the rice crispies and stir until sticky.
Divide the rice crispy mix between the ice cream chocolate covered moulds and press down firmly, making a smooth top. Insert the popsicle sticks and place in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Melt the remaining chocolate and then pour over the rice crispy layer to seal in all around the edges and completely cover the rice crispies. Return to the fridge once more, for about 20 minutes or until the chocolate is set.
Stir together the icing sugar with 1-2 tbsp of water, to form a thick drizzle and place in a piping bag. Snip the end off so you have a small hole.
Very carefully remove the chocolate covered rice crispy pops from the moulds and place on a plate or tray. Pip on the icing sugar to make a “mummy” effect and add on some edible sugar eyes or sprinkles.
These pops will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days.
