Had a silly time making the Halloween-Themed Rice Krispie Treats with my
boyfriend Chris last night. We had gotten the supplies over a week ago but I had
been busy and putting off making them. I thought tonight will be the night for
fun and a potential mess! The kit includes a box of Rice Krispies, marshmallows
and assorted Halloween candies such as bones, gummy eyes, jelly beans and
chocolates. It also came with 2 tubes of icing to decorate with and cookie
cutters of a bat and pumpkin.
We followed the recipe on the marshmallow
bag and decided that we wanted to try and add food coloring to some of it. We
used separate bowls to make orange and green Rice Krispie mix. And then the race
was on! It was very fun digging in the bowl of gooey-treat-mix (with washed
hands of course!) and shaping them into Halloween-y objects. I recommend using
spray Pam - LOTS of it! We sprayed our hands throughout the whole creative
process and it kept the mix from sticking to our hands and fingers. We used the
Rice Krispie website for some of the ideas and the rest we invented on our own.
And if you messed up or didn't like how something was turning out, you could
squish it up and start again! This would be a great/inexpensive way to kill the
afternoon with your kids!
We were able to be able to make about
12 different designs plus had some to snack on while we were creating! Check out
our cool treats!
