Rice Krispie Monsters
Hi, it’s me Lily again! Guess what’s coming up in a few weeks? My birthday party!! It’s going to be a cool pool party. We’re going to have pizza, cake and some of my cousins and friends. And guess what? My birthday party is close to Halloween. Did you know that’s one of my favorite holidays? And for some reason, I really like the smell of the Halloween decorations (and I’m not talking about the candles). We really love to decorate for Halloween, and my mom said we could decorate soon. That makes me so happy because they’re so festive and creepy.You know what else festive and creepy?? Monster Rice Krispies Treats!
We got to make these recently, and they were really fun and easy. We made five different colors – black, lime green, orange, purple and my favorite color – turquoise.They’re sweet and scary and they tasted so good! I like the candy eyes the best. These are great for Halloween, but would also be awesome at a monster-themed party. And instead of setting out candy, you can make these Rice Krispie treats instead. Everyone loved them!
How to make Monster Rice Krispie Treats:
You can definitely make homemade rice krispie treats using your favorite recipe, then cut them into rectangles and follow the recipe from there. We just liked using store bought Rice Krispies Treats because it made it really quick and easy! They’ll taste great either way.
- Unwrap the Rice Krispies (or cut your homemade rice krispies into rectangles).
- Add the lollipop sticks to the bottoms of the treats.
- Melt candy melts as directed on package (35 melts will cover 3-4 rice krispies) and dip tops of the treats in melted candy. Place on parchment paper.
- Press candy eyes on while candy coating is still wet, and let them set completely. If you want them to set quicker, you can place them in the fridge – just make sure you put the parchment paper on a cookie sheet first!
The blue ones are my favorite because that is my favorite color! 😀 I hope you have fun making these monster rice krispie treats year round, but especially for Halloween!
