Rice Krispie treats for Halloween

Sharing is caring!

Have a look at the all the goodies we recently received from Kellogg’s; we’re going to use them to make some yummy and scary Halloween treats for family and friends. If you have little ones at home, this is a simple, delicious and inexpensive way to involve them and share some Halloween love!

My “little pumpkins” are now “big pumpkins” but that doesn’t mean we still can’t have Halloween fun by making some tempting little treats!

For these treats we made the classic, original, no-bake squares using the recipe found on the Kellogg’s site.

After mixing the square ingredients together we piled it on a parchment lined sheet pan and smoothed them out evenly with a buttered spatula. {buttering the spatula made it a breeze to smooth the squares}

We then proceeded to cut out some cute little bats and pumpkins {we buttered the inside of the cutters too} as well as some square shapes to decorate using some cute candies.

The finished product was some delightful Halloween treats for my daughter to take to work and share with her colleagues.

Even though kids love these treats, adults love them too and I heard it took less than 30 minutes for these tasty treats to be gobbled up by some “big pumpkins”.

Can I make this recipe in the microwave?

Yes, absolutely! Place the butter and marshmallows in a microwave-safe bowl and zap on HIGH for 3 minutes. Remember to give it a stir after 2 minutes. Once it’s all melted and smooth, just follow the rest of the recipe as mentioned above. However, microwave strengths can differ, so keep an eye on it!

Why choose Kellogg’s Rice Krispies for this recipe?

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies offer a consistent crispiness and flavor that perfectly complements the creamy texture of the melted marshmallows. They ensure the treats remain airy and light, making them irresistibly munch-worthy!

Is there an alternative to regular marshmallows?

Of course! If you can’t find regular marshmallows, you can replace them with one jar (7 oz.) of marshmallow cream. It works just as well and gives a delightful creamy texture to the treats.

What kind of butter should I use?

I recommend using unsalted butter for a balanced flavor. It’s best to avoid diet, low-calorie, or tub margarines as they might not yield the best results.

How long can I store these treats?

Rice Krispie treats taste best when fresh, but you can store them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to two days. If you’re looking to keep them longer, follow the freezing instructions mentioned in the original recipe.

Any tips for a fun Halloween twist?

Get creative with your shapes using Halloween-themed cookie cutters, and don’t hesitate to decorate with edible googly eyes, sprinkles, or drizzled chocolate for that spooky touch!

Here’s to creating more Halloween memories with those we love. Happy Haunting!
