How to make Rice Krispie Frankenstein Treats
Unwrap pre-made rice crispie treats and place on parchment paper or wax paper on baking sheet allowing room between each treat.
In a small microwaveable safe bowl melt chocolate chips in microwave for 30 seconds and stir chips. Heat for an additional 15 seconds and stir. Repeat until chocolate chips are melted and smooth.
Dip the top of each rice krispy treat into melted chocolate and then dip into chocolate jimmy's creating the hair for Frankenstein. Place treats on parchment paper and allow chocolate to cool and harden.
Break pretzel stick in half and press each half into the sides of the crispy treats for the bolts in Frankenstien's neck. Using black frosting draw a zig zag mouth and place dot of icing for eyes to stick candy eye balls too.
These homemade treats are not only adorable but tasty too.
Store treats in an airtight container for up to a week at room temperature. Treats are best if enjoyed within 2-3 days.
I do not recommend freezing marshmallow treats.
Frankenstein rice krispies treats are perfect for an after school snack or a Halloween Treat. They are fun to surprise neighbors with a fun easy treat too.
Making Homemade Rice Krispy treats
I much prefer using the pre-purchased green rice krispy treats. They are quick and easy with very little effort. But I have a few tips when making from scratch.
Follow recipe on box of Rice Krispy cereal adding gel green food coloring in a large pot. Press mixture into a prepared pan baking pan sprayed with nonstick cooking spray and allow to cool completely before cutting into rectangles.
Once treats are cooled separate and place on parchment paper and dip into melted chocolate to create chocolate hair with chocolate jimmies.
On the back of each candy eye dot with frosting and stick to krispy treat. Adding pretzel sticks for bolts in sides of treat.
This recipe is so easy there are a variety of substitutions you can use.
Try using Black candy melts or green candy melts in place of chocolate chips. Both will work perfectly and Chocolate Jimmies will stick nicely for hair.
Black icing with a small round tip works well to pipe zig zag mouth onto Monster rice krispie treats. Chocolate wafers or even Chocolate Chips melted can work nicely too.
For Soft Rice Krispie Treats follow the directions on cereal box. Do not add extra cereal as treats tend to become hard.
Gel Food Coloring gives a vibrant green color ideal for monster treats. Green liquid color also does the job.
Use a large pot or large sauce pan to melt butter and marshmallows together. It may seem like it's too big but by the time you add rice cereal you will be thrilled to have the extra room to combine ingredients together.
Halloween Rice Krispie Treats are always fun to celebrate the holiday. The green marshmallow mixture is perfect for a spooky Frankenstein Treat.
