Easy peasy steps:

  3. Take the pan off the heat and immediately add the Rice Krispies cereal. Mix lightly until the cereal is lightly coated.

  4. Use a pyrex (around 13x9 inches) and cover it with cling film or aluminium foil. Alternatively, grease with cooking oil.

  5. Allow the mixture to cool completely or place it in the fridge for 20 minutes, until it becomes solid. e

  6. Draw a skeleton head on wax paper and then cut it out.

  7. Place the skeleton stencil on top of the Rice Krispies mixture and cut around the skull shape, removing the excess pieces.
