Monster Rice Krispie Treats for Halloween

Yum! I love a good crispy rice treat any time of year. My aunt makes a delicious recipe with Cocoa Krispies and peanut butter that I look forward to during family gatherings.

By decorating the snacks most of us know and love, we can easily have a Halloween goodie to share with others. Save this for a rainy October family night, or anytime you want a little extra excitement during spooky season!

How to make Monster Rice Krispies

Unwrap the treats and lay them out on parchment paper or a plastic cutting board.

Pour your sprinkles into a wide bowl or onto a plate and place them in your prep area.

Melt the candy melts in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave them for 15-second intervals, stirring in between, until the candies are completely melted and smooth.

Before the candy sets, dip the top into the sprinkles or use a spoon to sprinkle some onto the treat.

Candy eyes on a crispy rice treat.

Quickly add as many candy eyes as you wish to create your monster, and place the treat down on your parchment paper.

Make sure to do this while the candy is still wet, so the eyes stick well.
