I seriously LOVE this time of year. I love all the holidays, I love the weather (sometimes) and I love making fun crafts and snacks like these Spooky Monster Treats!
These little monster rice krispie treats are seriously SO EASY and SO YUMMY! They’re so yummy that my husband ate one of them before I had the chance to take a picture of all of them together. We made these monster and mummy treats but you can change it up and do so much with some homemade rice krispies, melting chocolate and a few sprinkles or candies. You can find all of the ingredients at your local grocery (the candy eyes are from Wal Mart). Mix up the rice krispies according to the directions on the box or just eyeball it like I do because we like them a little thicker around these parts.
I used white melting chocolate and separated it into 4 bowls: one I kept white for the mummies and I colored the other 3 bowls. Now I thought I was pretty familiar with the color wheel and what not but this little task proved me wrong. The blue monster was not supposed to be a blue monster…it was supposed to be a purple monster. How???? I mixed blue and red (which totally makes purple, right?!) But I got a not so pretty blue-gray, which can be monster appropriate but these are cute monster and cute monsters are bright and fun! The same thing happened with the little coral looking guy, who was supposed to be bright orange. Let’s just say the only one that came out right was the green but it’s kind of hard to mess that up when there is green food coloring. (;
I just dipped the treats into the chocolate and used the back of a spoon the spread it around evenly. For the mummy treats, I used a spoonful of the melted chocolate and ran the spoon over the mummy to make the little mummy wraps. I waited until the chocolate was dry to add the eyes because I didn’t want them running down but that’s totally up to you! If you use sprinkles, you should probably add those immediately unless you plan on using more chocolate when the first layer dries up. Once they were dry, I melted a tiny bit more chocolate to act as a kind of “glue”, put little dots on the back of each eye and put them in place. You can add pretzel sticks for arms and legs, candy corn for noses, sprinkles for hair – the possibilities are endless and delicious!
These are just a delicious as they are cute! We may or may not have had them for breakfast…..
They are quick to whip up and cheap to make – they make PERFECT snacks for a Halloween party!
