Rice Krispies Caramel Apple Treats

Team Phoenix (WendyAshleyJax, and Kristyn) are so pleased to present our Fall entry for the Rice Krispies Making Memories Challenge.

For this challenge we were given the challenge to create a spooky Halloween display, along with a Rice Krispies recipe that can double as a craft activity with kids, perfect for a costume party with the little ones. We worked long and hard to come up with a delicious recipe that would be fun for kids and very practical to execute at a party for children.

We are so excited to present our RICE KRISPIES CARAMEL APPLE TREATS:

Rice Krispies Caramel Apple Treats perfect for the fall or at Halloween time! { lilluna.com }

With real apples, spices, and caramel bits right inside. These treats are delicious on their own, but dip them in caramel and add your favorite candy or sprinkles and you are taken to a whole new level!

Serve these treats on a spooky spider plate for the complete Halloween experience!
Fun place cards for guests “Noah Pulse,” “Doug M. Upp,” “Myra Mains,” and “Stella Live”
really set the mood for this fun and spooky party.
Rice Krispies Caramel Apple Treats
  • 4 tbsp buttter or margarine
  • 1 10 oz. bag marshmallows
  • 1½ c dehydrated apples
  • 2 (individual serving size) packets apple cider drink mix
  • 1½ c carmel bits or carmal squares cut into small chunks
  • 6 c Kellog's Rice Krispies
  • popsicle, lollipop or other sticks
  • caramel for dipping the apples
  • assorted cookies, candies, and sprinkles for decorating
  1. Before you begin cooking, rough chop 1 ½ cups of dehydrated apples into small chunks.
  2. Heat 4 Tbsp butter or margarine in a sauce pan over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
  3. Stir in 2 packets of Apple Cider drink mix.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in 6 cups of Kelloggs Rice Krispies®.
  5. While the mixture is still hot, add the dehydrated apples and caramel chunks.
  6. Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, tightly pack balls of Caramel Apple Treats around your stick. Make sure your hands are clean and greased well to avoid sticking.
  7. Rest your treats, stick side up on a sheet of wax paper or greased cookie sheet.
  8. Refrigerate the treats until it is party time.
  9. FOR DIPPING AND DECORATING: Heat up a bag of caramels on the stove-top according to the package instructions.
  10. Depending on age and kitchen experience, you can let your child dip the caramel apple treats in the caramel or you can give some assistance.
  11. Before the caramel sets up, have your child roll their caramel apple treat in various candies, sprinkles, or crushed up cookies. You can go crazy and incorporate your families favorite treats into this recipe.
  12. Eat and enjoy!
Part two of the challenge is creating a spooky Halloween scene. We decided that instead of a formal dessert table we would incorporate the caramel apple fixings right into the table where the kids will be making their treats. We have got the different apple toppings in cute candy jars with Halloween faces on each jar. The apples that are ready to be dipped look beautiful sitting on a tiered tray in the middle of the table.
 It was just too hard to decide on one Halloween  themed Rice Krispies recipe so we made a few extras to incorporate into the table setting. We rounded out our party with some Rice Krispies candy corn treats and cute little Rice Krispies treat grape spiders. Rice Krispies Crunchy Skeleton Bones are pictured above as well.
We hope you celebrate this fall season with us and make your own Caramel Apple Rice Krispies treats. Whether you make them with your kids for an after school snack or have your own Halloween party, we can guarantee and kids and adults alike will love these Caramel Apple Rice Krispies treats! Stay tuned to each of our blogs for more information on how to enter a $100 Visa gift card giveaway! We also hope you will join us for a live chat over at the Motherhood on October 13 at 1:00pm Eastern.
