Cute Halloween Treats

If you are looking for a fun, creepy and yummy treat to make for Halloween, I think you should try these Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats. They are perfect for parties and everyone loves them.
Just Dip & Decorate!
PREP. Begin by unwrapping your Rice Krispie treats. Add the sticks to the bottoms of the treats.
CANDY MELTS. Melt candy melts as directed on package. Place treats over the bowl of melted candy melts and spoon it over the treats (about 45 melts covered 3-4 treats).
DECORATE. Sprinkle crushed Oreos on top and add candy eyeballs and place on parchment paper. Let set and then pipe on mouth with black frosting.
Note. Place in the fridge if you want them to set quicker. Be sure to put parchment paper on cookie sheet in this case. ENJOY!
Using Homemade Rice Krispie treats:
We like using store bought rice Krispie treats. It saves on prep time and they are already perfectly cut to size. However, you can definitely use your favorite homemade rice krispie treat recipe. When you use the homemade treats you can make these two ways:
- Using the candy melts to coat the rice Krispie treat as written in the recipe. I like how the smooth coating looks with the other decorations
- Skip the candy coating and just put food coloring directly into the rice Krispies. Once they’ve set cut into green rectangles and add the Frankenstein face according to directions.
Tips, Variations + Storing Info
Adding black icing to form the monster mouth is pretty easy with the right tools. Here are a few suggestions you can use to create this cute Frankenstein:
- Buy prepackaged black writing gel found in the baking section
- Use a thin piping tip, like the wilton #2, and bag of frosting
- Fill a Ziploc with frosting and snip a small piece off of one corner.
- Poke a toothpick through the top of your rice Krispie (where the head would be) and attach marshmallows on either side, to look like the electricity nubs
- Consider spraying it gray with edible glitter
- Use chocolate rice Krispies for more flavor
- Aside from using green candy melts you can also use white chocolate and green food coloring. Simply melt the white chocolate and add a little bit of Crisco or coconut oil to help make it smooth enough to coat the treat.
STORE the rice Krispies in an airtight container for at least 3 days or you can freeze them for up to 6 months. Be sure that before you store them after the candy coating has hardened. Also, separate the layers with wax or parchment paper.
To FREEZE, wrap each individual rice Krispie treat in a layer of plastic wrap before placing them in a freezer safe bag for up to 4 months.
