  • 6 cups puffed rice cereal

  • 12 oz bright green candy melts
  • 6 oz bright white candy melts
  • 2-4 tbs refined coconut oil or shortening

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper- set aside. Butter or spray with non stick cooking spray a 9x13 baking dish- set aside.

Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats

  • Melt the green candy melts in the microwave at 50% power. Heat for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until candy melts have completely melted. If the mixture is too thick (which I find it to be most of the time) add in 1 tbs of coconut oil or shortening, stir thoroughly and test the thickness. If still too thick add more coconut oil, 1 teaspoon at a time until it is your desired thickness. The candy melts should be fairly smooth and liquidy.

  • Dip one of the broad sides of the rice crispy squares into the green candy melts and set on the parchment lined baking sheet to harden. Right after dipping the rice crispy treats place the eyes on the them.

  • While the candy melts are setting up whip up a half batch up the easy black buttercream (see notes for instructions).
  • Using a piping bag filled with black frosting and a Wilton #3 writing tip, pipe on the hair and scars.

Mummy Rice Krispie Treats

  • Melt the white candy melts in the microwave at 50% power. Heat for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until candy melts have completely melted. If the mixture is too thick (which I find it to be most of the time) add in ½ tbs of coconut oil or shortening, stir thoroughly and test the thickness. If still too thick add more coconut oil, 1 teaspoon at a time until it is your desired thickness. The candy melts should be fairly smooth and liquidy.

Tips and Tricks
  •  To make black buttercream simply whip up a half batch of my dark chocolate frosting and add several drops of black gel food coloring. You want the buttercream to be a dark grey color. Then let it sett for 10 minutes or so and the color will darken to more of a black. Alternatively, you could buy black frosting from the store and use that.
