Check out these easy spooky rice krispie treats!
My kids school has a fun Halloween carnival each year. It’s a great fundraiser and always a lot of fun for the kids to participate in. As part of the carnival they have a Bake Sale. All of the baked goods are donated and sold off as a way to earn money for the school. I’ve started making these easy Rice Krispie Monsters every year for the bake sale and they are always one of the first items sold! These spooky rice krispie treats are truly so fun for everyone!

Rice Krispie Monsters Directions
One of my favorite parts of this easy Halloween treat is that it is so easy to make, but makes such a cute and fun statement.
1. Make Rice Krispies
The first step is to make rice krispie treats according to the package directions. If you have never made rice krispie treats before, don’t worry, they are a so so easy and only take a few minutes to whip up.
Pour your finished rice krispie treats into a 9×13 pan and let them cool and harden.
Once your spooky rice krispies are cool, cut them into rectangles. The size and dimension really doesn’t matter. It actually would be cute to have a few different sizes and maybe a little un-uniformed! They are rice krispie monsters after all!
2. Prepare Chocolate
Next, you will want to prepare your chocolate for dipping.
I bought these candy melts from Walmart. You can order them off of Amazon, but they were cheaper at Walmart. It’s fun to experiment with different colors. I have found turquoise, purple, and orange to be our favorite monster colors.
To melt your chocolate, pour the candy melts into a glass bowl and place in microwave. Heat on 50% heat for 1 minute. Stir well and then return to microwave for another 15 seconds. Keep stirring and heating in 15 second intervals until chocolate is smooth and melted.
3. Dip Rice Krispies in Chocolate
Now it’s time to make your monsters! My kids love helping with this part!
Dip each rice krispie rectangle half way into the melted chocolate. Be quick with this step. As the chocolate cools it is harder to dip and use.
Lay each dipped rice krispie treat on a parchment paper and add eyes before chocolate hardens.
4. Add Candy Eyes
This part is so easy and fun! Use your creativity to make silly faces on each monster! My kids had some fun ideas for making the eyes unique.
Let your cute rice krispie monsters cool, and the chocolate harden.
And that is it! You are done! Now, feed your monster treats to your little monster darlings. 😉
