Frankenstein Halloween Treat Ingredients & Directions:

  • rice Crispy Cereal (6 cups)
  • real butter (6 tablespoons)
  • mini marshmallows (6 cups)
  • cream cheese or vanilla frosting
  • green food coloring
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • candy eyes
  • black gel icing
  • tootsie rolls

You will first need to make your rice crispy treats.  Start with melting 6 tablespoons of butter over low-medium heat. Once the butter has melted, stir in 6 cups of mini marshmallows.  Stir the butter and marshmallow mixture until the mixture is smooth and all of the marshmallows have melted.  Remove your pan from the heat and fold in 6 cups of rice crispy cereal.  Transfer the mixture to a 9×11 dish and use your hands to flatten the mixture out to evenly cover the entire pan.  Let the mixture cool for 15-20 minutes and then cut the rice crispy treats into a square or even rectangle if you prefer.

Mix your icing and the green food coloring together until you achieve your desired shade of green.  Ice the top of each rice crispy square.  Gently sprinkle chocolate sprinkles to the top of each square, add your candy eyes, and draw on Frankenstein’s mouth with the black gel icing.  Finally, cut the tootsie rolls into smaller pieces and attach them to the side of the rice crispy treat.

Serve and enjoy this delicious Halloween treat!
