During the month of October I like to create some not so spooky fun for my family. The simple projects seem to reap the most rewards, and today I would like to share a new family favorite I think you are really going to like; but first I have a little joke for you….
Why did the monster knit herself three socks?
Because she grew another foot!
OK, I know that was bad, but it was a good bad right?! So how about we talk about another kind of monster? Take a look!
These seriously are the easiest to make and even your littlest ghouls and goblins can get in on the cooking fun. My 4 year old had so much fun arranging the eyeballs on these monster treats. I think she did a pretty good job.
Since you are creating monsters, you could probably choose to make your monsters any color you wanted. I thought orange would be nice, but my little helper opted for purple and green. So, that is what we went with.
Before we go on, I kind of feel like you need to hear another joke. It’s really good I promise…..
Emma going to get any Halloween candy?!
Alright, so no more jokes. How about we get back to making monster treats?! I picked up all of my ingredients at my neighborhood dollar and craft store. Here is a roundup of everything you will need.
I purchased the long, pre-made Rice Krispie bars, because they can be cut into 3 pieces each bar.
Follow the instructions on the chocolate candy melts package. I do one color at a time to ensure the chocolate doesn’t harden. To apply the chocolate you can either dip the top half of the treat or I personally prefer to use a small spoon and spread the chocolate on the top part of the treat. That way I can control the dripping.
Next lay the chocolate dipped Rice Krispie on wax paper to dry. Apply the eye balls before the chocolate dries and hardens.
Here is a printable recipe you can use as well.
- Homemade or store bought Rice Krispie Treats. I use long pre-made bars that can be cut into 3 sections.
- 1 to 2 bags of candy melts
- Edible candy eye balls.
- Follow directions on the candy melts packaging.
- Dip or spoon on melted chocolate onto the top portion of the Rice Krispie.
- Place on wax paper and apply candy eyeballs before the chocolate hardens and dries.
Isn’t this simple?! But now you know about this recipe think about the million different ways to enjoy these treats? For a classroom or work party, girl or boy scout meeting, a night at home or pretty much anywhere you want to bring a little dash of Halloween fun!
Oh, and did you see my Halloween survival guide for parents?
