These scary Halloween Rice Krispie treats only take about 5 minutes to create and make a fun, edible craft for you and the kids. Plus, they’ll bring over all the neighbor kids right to your door for trick-or-treating.
Purchase individual Rice Krispie box from store. Boxes varies for 8 to 40 individual pieces. Unwrap individual bars and place on wax paper.
Place the lollipop sticks or decorative straw in the bottom of the each Rice Krispie.
Melt Cocoa (follow package instructions)
Dip small portion of Rice Krispie bar into cocoa to form the hair. Cocoa should dry fairly quickly.
Attach the the mini green M&Ms or marshmallows for Frankenstein’s bolts and nose (I would use the M&M for the nose) using icing. Then place the eyes on with icing. For Frankenstein’s mouth dram with Wilton Writing Pen and for his brides mouth, cut the point off of a heart sprinkle with kitchen scissors. Then attach that using icing.
For their eyebrow use Wilton writing pen create you own design.
Let the Rice Krispies cool for about 15 minutes until they are set.
TIP – you can place chocolate jimmies on Frank’s mouth (like stitches before pen dries) and white chocolate jimmies in the bride’s hair (like lighting) before the cocoa dries.
As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do.
Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be!
An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
A great way to build a community of parents. Our blog offers tips on parenting, kids in the kitchen recipes,art & crafts, and traveling with children advice, which makes life a little easier and a whole lot more fun.
