These Spooky Halloween Rice Krispies Treats are super easy to make and will be a hit with all the kids at Halloween!

I love Halloween as I can watch all the horror movie marathons I want. My wife doesn’t like Halloween so much because it’s the day after her birthday and she hates horror movies.

This is one of those kid-friendly recipes you can make with your kiddos right before Halloween.

I decided to make Frankenstein this year but as you can see, this recipe is so easy and versatile you can make just about anything by making different forms and using different colors of food coloring.

You will need the following ingredients to make this Spooky Halloween Rice Krispies Treats recipe (see recipe card for quantities): Salted Butter, Mini Marshmallows, Rice Krispies, Green Food Coloring, Milk Chocolate Chips and Wilton Candy Eyes.

  3. Add green food coloring and mix well. You can add more or less food coloring to achieve the color you are looking for.
  4. Add the Rice Krispies to the marshmallow mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Press Rice Krispies mixture into the prepared baking sheet (or bar pan) and let cool at room temperature (DO NOT REFRIGERATE).
  6. Once bars have cooled, cut into equally sized rectangles. Set aside.
  7. With the use of a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips until smooth.
  8. Dip each Rice Krispies bar about 1/4 of the way into the chocolate for the hair. Place bar on parchment paper to dry. Repeat for remaining Rice Krispies Bars.
