My kids like it (most of the time), when I take the ordinary and make it a different. Check out how you can take these rice treats and turn them into Frankenstein rice treats. Perfect for those Halloween parties. Adults and kids. Who doesn’t like fun Halloween recipes?
how to make Frankenstein rice treats for Halloween
to make treats:
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 10 ounce bag of marshmallows
6 cups crisp rice cereal
to make Frankenstein:
white melting chocolate
green food dye
1-2 brick chocolate melting chocolate
In a large pan, melt the butter.
Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir until the marshmallows are melted.
Add the rice cereal and stir until mixed completely.
In a large rectangle pan lined with parchment paper, add the mix and push down in pan to form.
If needed you can wet your clean hands and press into place.
Allow to set.
Remove from the pan and cut into small 2×3-ish shapes.
In a microwave safe container, add the white chocolate bricks for 1 minute. Once the chocolate begins to melt, add vegetable oil. For 4 bricks, we used 1 tablespoon of oil. This is important to mix in after the chocolate melts a little. I found the food dye turned the smooth chocolate to frosting consistency if I added the oil after melting the chocolate completely and adding the dye.
Once the chocolate is melted, add the green dye. Mix and add more until you get the green color you want.
Take the rectangle and place it into the chocolate and cover the front, top and sides. Place on a wire rack or parchment paper to dry. before it dries, put 2 chocolate chips down the middle for eyes.
While they are drying take 1 brick of chocolate and melt it. Once melted, dip the top of the rectangle at an angel (you want to make hair on the front.)
Take the chocolate sprinkles and add them onto the chocolate for hair.
You can take any extra chocolate to make a mouth using a toothpick or the edge of a spoon.
Set back on the wire rack/parchment paper to dry.

I don’t know…these look suspiciously like Rice Krispy Squares trying to sneak into a Halloween party.
You could definitely use that cereal too. Or cheat and buy the ones already made. But what fun is that? 🙂 These were made for a lot less and are all different sizes because of my mad knife skills.
