Rice Krispie Treat Monsters
Adorable Rice Krispie Treat Monsters are a cinch to make, with minimal "cooking". Aren't they super fun?!
Recipe type: Snack/Sweet
Cuisine: American
Yield: 20 bars
  • 1 (10.5 oz.) package mini marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 7 cups rice krispie cereal
  • Candy melts, in several different colors
  • Edible candy eyeballs
  1. In a large microwave-safe bowl, heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave again for an additional 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.
  2. Add rice krispie cereal. Stir until well coated.
  3. Spread into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan that has been lightly coated with cooking spray, and press evenly using a piece of parchment paper that's also been sprayed. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
  4. Cut rice krispie treats into bars, of unequal sizes. Remember, monsters are just like people. Some are big, some small, and some are tall, some short, etc. They look better if they're not all uniform in size.
  5. Microwave candy melts, about 1 cup each color, in a small bowl, at 30-sec increments, stirring after each time, until completely melted.
  6. Dip each bar into the melted candy and let it set on parchment paper.
  7. Decorate with edible eyeballs.
  8. Just before candy hardens, use a toothpick to "draw" hair on the monsters' heads.
  9. Allow melted candy to become firm before serving. You can prepare treats up to 2 days in advance.
