Monster Rice Krispies Treats

Monster Rice Krispies Treats are much nicer than the ones hiding under your bed! Frightfully fun and perfect to bring as school treats or to a Halloween party.

These are so fun to make and your kids will have a blast helping you. The Rice Krispies Treats recipe is simple, I choose to make my own but you can also use store-bought ones. Once you have your Rice Krispies, dip it in your favorite candy coating and add candy eyes! 

I can’t really say that I have always been festive over the top celebrator of any holiday. That is until I had my own kids, and now I may just be out of control! Seeing the joy in their eyes is everything! The Holliday season kicks off in October, well if your Starbucks September, but for me, it’s October and it truly is the most wonderful time of the year! Making Halloween themed food with the kids is a blast! We love our FrakenFine Guacamole, Mummy Dogs, and Monster Rice Krispies Treats!

I used my family recipe for these Rice Krispies Treats. Every time I make them it takes me right back to fond childhood memories. I love being able to pass it along to my kids! The Rice Krispies Treats have 4 ingredients butter, marshmallows, vanilla extract, and salt. Makes for the thickest, chewy and delicious Rice Krispies Treats. Everyone will love these with or without a monster on it!

To make the monster come alive on your treats you will need colorful candy coatings such as Wiltons Candy Melts, and candy eyeballs. Both can be found at most craft stores, I found them at Michaels Craft Store.
