Frankenstein Rice Krispies Pops
Updated: Apr 13
Yesterday I spent the evening giving the Frankenstein family a funny hairdo and this is probably the most fun I've had in a very long time (thanks COVID-19). Anyway, Frankenstein Rice Krispies treats are probably the most obvious Halloween treats you can make and find online so I bet you don't need a recipe to make them but if you need a small batch adjustment you can definitely use this one below because it yields only 6 pieces and it's super delicious 😋
Plus, it's very therapeutic.
--- RICE KRISPIES TREATS ---
65g Rice Krispies
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
green food colouring
pinch of salt
--- TOPPINGS ---
50-60g dark chocolate
Nilla Banana Pudding cereal (marshmallow bites)
Cover with parchment paper a small rectangular pan (16cm x 11cm or similar) and set aside.
In a large saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Then add the marshmallows and stir until melted.
Remove from the heat and quickly add salt, vanilla extract and a few drops of green colouring; mix until you get the desired colour.
Stir in Rice Krispies and mix very well making sure all cereal is coated (ACT QUICKLY because it's gonna be a sticky mess!!! ahahah)
While the crispy rice cereal mix is still warm transfer the mixture inside the prepared pan and gently press down using a greased spatula or your hands.
Allow treats to set at room temperature for at least 1 hour before slicing/shaping.
Remove from the pan and transfer on a paper sheet; cut into 6 rectangles and insert a skewer inside each piece.
Melt dark chocolate in the microwave or on a double boiler an then garnish your Frankenstein family: dip their head in the chocolate to style their hair, dip one side of Nilla Banana Pudding cereal and stick them on the front to make their eyes and on the sides for their neck bolts. Finally draw their mouths using a toothpick.
Let the chocolate set at room temperature for half an hour.
My Frankenstein family came out a bit too green because I put too much food colouring so I suggest to put only a few drops at the time.
You can store these treats at room temperature inside an airtight container for a few days.
If you make it let me know! :)
