“The Nightmare Before Christmas” is one of my favorite movies and I love this Jack inspired treat- Angie, Southern Halloween Queen
Do you know how many people sent me baby themed Nightmare Before Christmas ideas when I was pregnant with Jax and how many people still do? haha It’s a lot, and I love them all. Someone even sent me a few pictures for a Nightmare Before Christmas / Jack Skellington nursery that they had seen online!
No, even though I love Jack Skellington and The Nightmare Before Christmas we did not go with the Jack Skellington nursery for the baby. We went with a Dumbo theme but that doesn’t mean that I won’t be dressing our little one up like Jack Skellington one day! haha
So you know I couldn’t let Halloween get close without making some kind if Jack Skellington dessert right?!? I mean, I already have quite a few Jack Skellington desserts on the blog for Halloween but I needed another.
I’m thinking that maybe I’ll make it a tradition to share 1 new Jack Skellington recipe with y’all ever Halloween!
So far I have these Jack Skellington desserts on the blog:
I also have a tutorial on how to make Sally’s Potion Bottles !
So let me tell you something about these Jack Skellington faces on these Jack Skellington Rice Krispie Treats. Look at this photo above, that face was drawn on with a black edible marker.
The other faces that you see on the other Jack Skellington Rice Krispie Treats were drawn on with chocolate candy melts.
I tried the black edible marker first. It looked pretty good but it wasn’t as dark as I wanted. It also had trouble writing after I was painting the 3rd one. So If you want to use the edible marker you may want to get a few of them.
So I went with the second option for the rest of them. I used Chocolate candy melts to pipe Jack Skellington faces onto the Jack Skellington Rice Krispie Treats and I loved how they turned out.
I used regular chocolate because that’s just what I had but you could also use the black candy melts that you can get from the hobby stores. Either one will work perfectly!
Also, I first made these with just the tops covered in white chocolate and I just didn’t like the way they looked. That’s why I just went ahead and dipped the entire circle into the white chocolate. Plus, I think I’ve told y’all this before, but if not, I LOVE chocolate covered rice krispie treats haha.
Chocolate covered rice krispie treats are like heaven to me. haha
