Halloween Rice Crispy Treats: Bats, Pumpkins, Ghosts
Halloween Rice Crispy Treats covered in white chocolate taste so good it's scary. I had so much fun making these and eating them was even better. I can't tell you how much the white chocolate enhances the flavor.
Rice Crispy Treats are easy to make and are perfect for your Halloween party favors. Give some to the kids to take to class, give 'em to the neighbors or take some to the office.
I liked turning many into rice crispy treat lollipops, but you can also make them without the sticks. Try out the recipe and the decorations below how I decorated them. Then tell us at the bottom of this page how your Halloween rice crispy treats came out, or better yet send us the pics too, so you can show off your edible art work! We would love to see your masterpieces.
You or your friends can leave your Halloween treat photos on our website so you can show them off to the whole world.
How to Make Halloween Rice Crispy Treats
1. Here are the ingredients with which you will create your scary Halloween rice crispy treats, some are optional.
2. Place wax paper on the cookie sheets and set aside. Melt the butter in the sauce pan over low heat. Spray spoon with cooking spray.
3. Once butter starts to melt add the marshmallows and stir immediately. Let and butter melt completely until liquified.
4. Remove from heat and stir in crisped rice cereal. It would be easier to stir everything in a separate large bowl.
5. Once completely blended pour into the cookie sheet (or casserole dish). Spray fingers with cooking spray and press into cookie sheet to desired thickness.
6. Place the tray in the refrigerator while melting the chocolate to allow them to harden up a bit, which will make it easier to cut and decorate them. You will not need to store them in the fridge, though, this may cause them to stale and the chocolate may sweat after moving back to room temperature.
7. Now it's time to melt the chocolate. Either use the microwave(easier) or a double boiler. Pour a small amount of the chips into the small microwaveable bowl. You do NOT want the chocolate to thicken up due to overheating. So to be safe heat the chips the first time for 30 seconds. Chips will still be pretty solid, this is normal. Remove and stir then reheat in 10-second intervals stirring between each time. Continue until chips are liquified and smooth, if they are too thick add a tiny bit of vegetable oil then stir again.
8. Remove the tray from the fridge and begin to press the cookie cutter into the pressed mix or place the cardboard cut out on top and with serrated steak knife cut around the shape. I found it easier to remove small pieces at a time and to rotate the shape to get a new angle each time I cut.
Then place the cut out shapes onto the other cookie sheet.
9. Dip rubber spatula into chocolate and spread over each treat. Put the treats aside to let chocolate set until hardened. If you can wait 24 hours before decorating it would be better, but if not at least 30 minutes or more.
TIP: It will save you time to dip the treats. Only do this if you are using just a few colors. You would either need to use a double boiler to melt the chocolate or a medium sized bowl to place in the microwave. Use the whole batch of each color of chocolate before starting the next color. Be careful not to burn the chocolate. Keep the temperature low on the double boiler or use small intervals of time if using the microwave. Stir often and thoroughly. Dipping will be much more time efficient if making dozens of halloween rice crispy treats.
If you need to make a large batch of Halloween rice crispy treats then you may want to cut down on the variety of colors since you will need many chocolate coating wafers of the same color. For example, if you need several dozen for party favors then you may want to focus on a few colors and that's it. Maybe white(ghosts, bones), black (cats, bats, witch hats, etc.) and orange (pumpkins).
If you are making only around a dozen then purchase a bag of Mercken's colored chocolate wafers with a variety of different colors. Mercken's is good tasting quality chocolate that is priced right. You can separate the different colored wafers by hand like I did for this project and the Christmas rice crispy treats page I will make soon.
TIP: Cookie Cutters make the job much easier, especially if for a large amount of treats. I customized my "cutters" since I didn't have all the ones I needed. Eventually I will add them to my collection, but for now I have a creative way to make my own in the meantime.
