Little Monster Rice Crispy Treats
These Little Monster Rice Crispy Treats are so fun for kids! They are the perfect Halloween Treat!!
If your looking for something to make before Halloween I’ve got a fun treat for you! These Little Monster Rice Crispy Treats may look way too cute to eat, but once you taste them you won’t be able to resist. I know at my house they didn’t last long 😁.
It’s hard to believe it’s Fall already! The leaves are starting to change and we’ve already experienced our first frost. It was so weird to wake up and see frost on the roof. I tried my hardest to cover parts of the garden and thankfully they were ok. The temps are still warm enough that the plants still have a chance to produce, yay!! Hopefully, the temps stay this way for Halloween. The plants are still trying their hardest to produce. But, I know the season is coming to an end!
If you’ve never made rice crispy treats they are probably one of the easiest desserts to make. When I made these little monster rice crispy treats I had another project going on. My husband requested a rice crispy treat cake for his birthday. When I was picking up the ingredients I found some super fun frostings. Funfetti to be exact. This was the kind that had eyes and sprinkles. At that moment I thought let’s make monsters. So instead of 1 batch, I made two. I knew the kids would enjoy decorating these.
I was right! My daughter was so excited when she came home from school to find these. I premade the rice crispy treats and had all the fun frostings ready for her to decorate. She was beyond excited she gave me a great big hug and said thank you, mom!! I told you kids love these monsters. And I have to say adults will too!!
Let’s go over the ingredients so you can make these little monsters at home. How to video here
- 1 Box of Rice Crispy Treats (6 cups of cereal)
- 1 package of Marshmallows (Normal size) you’ll need 40 marshmallows or the whole bag
- Butter-3 tablespoons, more for greasing the pan or your hands
- Frosting- Funfetti with eyes or any frosting you choose. Extra eyes can be bought in the cake decorating aisle.
Grab a pot and add 3 tablespoons of butter. You’ll want to melt the butter on low heat. Once it’s melted add your marshmallows. You can go ahead and count 40 marshmallows or just dump in the whole bag. That’s exactly what I do. Continue to stir and keep on low heat until melted. Once the marshmallows are melted pour in your 6 cups of cereal. Stir quickly until every piece of the cereal is covered. This gets messy. Quickly scoop the marshmallow covered cereal into a greased pan. With greased hands or a greased baggie pat down to flatten the cereal in the pan. Let it cool and you can cut the rice crispy treats into the desired size.
Time to decorate…
Add your rice crispy treat squares to a plate and you’ll want to spread the frosting on the tops of your rice crispy treats. Then add eyes and sprinkles. Decorate how you want. Our monsters had different colored frosting and some even had 1 eye. They all can look unique. Just like your other little monsters 😁. I have to say we all had a lot of fun decorating these!!
I hope you guys can make these little monsters. They are really pretty fun to make for the Halloween season!!
Take care & stay cozy!!
