Halloween monster and mummy Rice Krispie Treats on a serving tray.

Halloween Rice Krispie Treats


Description

These spooky Halloween Rice Krispie Treats are hair-raising fun! When these mummies and monsters arrive at the party, all the Halloween ghosts and ghouls will rush to snag one. I highly recommend that you make 2 batches.


Ingredients

Scale

Halloween Mummies & Monsters

  • 1 (10-ounce) bag Ghirardelli white vanilla-flavored melting wafers
  • 3 (12-ounce) bags Wilton Candy Melts, 1 each – orange, purple, black
  • 3 teaspoons vegetable shortening, divided
  • 1 box (24-pack bars, prepared) Rice Krispies Treats
  • 60 assorted candy eyeballs (large and small), in white and Halloween colors
  • Jimmy sprinkles – orange, purple and black

Recipe Supplies

  • Parchment paper
  • 2 large baking trays
  • 1 piping bag (for mummy bandages) or zip-top bag
  • Decorating tip #3 (optional)
  • Cooking Tweezers (optional)

Instructions

Mummy Rice Krispie Treats

RECIPE PREP: Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Unwrap 6 Rice Krispie Treats. Prep a piping bag with a #3 tip (optional). Or pull out a zip-top bag and pair of scissors (to later snip off a corner) to make a DIY piping bag for the mummy bandages. 

  1. Add 1/2 bag of white melting wafers to a microwave-safe bowl. Melt according to package instructions. [Note: There may be leftover melted chocolate after you’re done. It just depends on how thick the coating is on your Treats.]
  2. Spoon melted chocolate over each Treat, covering 4/5 of the Treat so that a small bare border is left along the bottom. Place the Treats on the prepared tray. Quickly add 2 eyes to each mummy before the chocolate has a chance to set.
  3. Transfer remaining melted chocolate to the prepared piping bag. Pipe drizzles of chocolate diagonally, vertically, and horizontally across the mummies to create the look of bandages. If more chocolate is needed, melt a bit more.
  4. Let the chocolate set for 20 to 30 minutes.

Monster Rice Krispie Treats

RECIPE PREP: Line a large baking tray with parchment paper. Unwrap 18 Rice Krispies Treats. Add jimmy sprinkles (purple, black and orange) to 3 little bowls or ramekins.

  1. Add 1/2 bag of each color candy melts to its own microwave-safe bowl. Add 1 teaspoon shortening (for a smoother-looking coating) to each of the 3 bowls. One bowl at a time, microwave in 20-second bursts, stirring well after each session until chocolate is melted and smooth. [Note: There may be melted chocolate leftover for making more Treats.]
  2. Working quickly before the chocolate hardens, dip a Rice Krispie Treat into a bowl of melted chocolate. With a spoon, spread the chocolate about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way down the Treat in an uneven way. We’re going for an overall look that’s scruffy, not neat. Immediately dip the top of the Treat into a bowl of jimmy sprinkles for “hair.”
  3. Place the Treat on the prepared tray. Quickly add 1 to 4 candy eyes to the monster. Make each one different. If you have cooking tweezers on hand, it will make adding the eyes quick and easy with no messy fingers, and help avoid indents on the smooth surface of the chocolate. 
  4. Continue dipping and decorating until all the Monster Rice Krispie Treats are made. Let the chocolate set completely (about 30 minutes). 

Notes

How to store Halloween Rice Krispie Treats: After the candy coating has hardened, individually wrap each treat in parchment paper. Then put them inside an airtight container, or slip them into a zip-top bag. They’ll stay fresh for up to 3 days. For longer storage, freeze for up to 1 month.
