Fun Halloween Treats

I searched the internet high and low for something fun, cute and easy to make for Carter’s Halloween party. I found a lot of good ideas, but settled on this one.   Well, it didn’t work exactly like I thought it would.  (As a matter of fact I wish I’d seen this post before I went to the grocery store! I would have done the coating that way.)  But they look good and taste terrific, which is really what matters most!

So you want to know how to make these little guys?

FrankI bought pre-made Rice Krispy Treats.  (In retrospect, I could have just made them and colored the marshmallow mixture green, but oh well…)

Then take 2 cups(1 bag) of white chocolate chips and melt it with 2 TBsp crisco in the microwave.  Pour in green food coloring(remember a little goes a long way!), and mix well.

Take the mixture and wrap is around the treat like you would do with modeling clay or play-dough.

Dip Frank’s head into a bowl of black sugar crystals.

Stick Mike and Ike’s in the sides for the neck bolts.

Use Sixlets or M&Ms for the eyes, and cut up gummy worms for the lips.

Use black decorator’s gel to finish off the look by dotting the eyes and drawing a nose.

Refrigerate until the chocolate is hardened.

    Hey –

    Thanks for the shout-out Bridge! I think these are adorable. I have a couple of packs of the Candquik left & was wondering what I could do with it for Abi’s class (besides a repeat of the ladybugs making ghosts instead). I LOVE the little Twinkie Ghosts & think the left-over Candiquik & black M&Ms will do the trick!

    This is really cute. I might have to try it for my boys. I love for them to have special treats to eat on Halloween. Haystacks are great, but these would really get them excited!

    FYI – Candiquik & Twinkies are not friends. Just thought you’d like to know.
