Using a circle cookie cutter, cut out the scarecrow face from rice krispies treats.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the melting chips according to package directions.
Spread a layer of the melted white chocolate on top of the cut circle for the head. Set aside the remaining melted chocolate for later use.
Press the 2 candy eyes and orange M&M for the nose into the melted chocolate on the face.
Firmly press 2 licorice strands into scarecrow face on each side (for the hair).
Before the chocolate sets, lay the squares of cereal across the top of the scarecrow head in 2 layers. I used 4 on the bottom and 2 on top to resemble a hat. You may have to add some additional melted chocolate onto the back of each cereal square that goes on top of the hair.
Pipe a big smile with the black Wilton icing gel.
