1.  Line a baking sheet with wax or parchment paper. Set aside.
2.  Cut the prepared Rice Krispies (from recipe above) into 6 even long rectangles.
2.   In a medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave the solid shortening for 40 seconds or until melted.
3.   Add the white chocolate melts and stir until completely melted.
4.   Immediately coat each Rice Krispies stick with the melted white chocolate and place on the baking sheet to “set” for at least 30 minutes.
5.   Meanwhile, cut each Airheads piece into 2 pieces lengthwise. You will have 18 pieces total.
6.   Once the chocolate on the Rice Krispies is dry, take an Airhead piece and wrap around a Rice Krispies stick at the very top of the stick. Pinch at the back to seal.
7.  Wrap another Airheads piece around the stick about 1/2-1 inch down from the top one. Pinch at the back to seal.
8.  Repeat step 7 with another Airheads piece. Complete steps 6-8 until all of the Rice Krispies have 3 airheads pieces alternating with white chocolate for the hat.
9.   With the black write-on gel, pipe two eyes, a nose and whiskers on each stick.
10.  At the very bottom of each stack, pipe a large “X” with the red write-on gel. Fill it in with the gel to resemble a bow tie.
11.   ENJOY!!!
