Halloween has to be the most fun holiday. The sweets and decorations make it an event that kids look forward to for months. And the creative possibilities can’t be beat! We do everything from easy halloween snacks to quick and fun crafts leading up to the big day. Everyone loves our Spooky Rice Krispy Treat Skeletons.
But not everyone has the gingerbread man cookie cutter or the time to go out and get them. There is a solution, my friends–skip the cookie cutter and make these ghosts instead.
Easy Halloween Snacks: Spooky Rice Crispy Treat Mummy
- 10 oz bag miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 3 tablespoons softened butter
- 2-12 oz bags Wilton bright white chocolate candy melts
- Candy eyes
- Decorating bag
- Large microwave safe bowl
1. In a large bowl, combine your marshmallows and butter and heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Then mix with the spoon.
2. Add in your Rice Krispies cereal until your cereal is evenly covered with the marshmallow mixture.
3. Grease a 9×13″ baking pan and press your marshmallow mixture into your pan firmly.
4. Let the mixture set for a few hours. Then cut into small rectangles.
5. In a large microwave safe bowl, heat your candy melts on 50% power for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted.
6. Lay out a piece of parchment paper and carefully dunk the top of each Rice Krispies treat into your melted chocolate and smooth the chocolate on top and on the sides.
7. Transfer to the freezer for 15 minutes, fill up a decorating bag with the remaining chocolate and cut a small tip off the end of the bag.
8. Dab a small amount of melted chocolate on the back of two candy eyes and carefully press them onto your white chocolate covered rice crispy treat towards the top half.
9. Use your decorating bag to draw several lines back-and-forth across the top of your Rice Krispies treat, let harden and enjoy!
If your kids love Halloween as much as mine do, this is a great easy Halloween treat. It looks like it took way more effort on your part than it did, right?
For a Halloween party, I would make the skeletons, these mummies, some frankensteins…the sky is the limit! Dress up the table with fake spider webs and fun Halloween platters.
