Melt the red candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Heat in 15-30 second increments and stir well between each interval until smooth.
Dip the top ¼-⅓ of each rice krispy in the red candy melts. Scrape the excess back into the bowl and set back on the parchment.
Place your mini marshmallows along the edge of the red line to create the fur of the hat. Then sprinkle with a pinch (or more) of the red sanding sugar.
Cut a small hole in the end of the white chocolate piping bag (you can always cut it bigger if needed but start smaller than you think).
Pipe a small dot on each eye ball candy and set into place on each rice krispy treat.
