Cooking with Manuela: Halloween Rice Krispies Treats

This Halloween let’s get creative with these fun and spooky
 white chocolate rice krispies mummies and skeletons
So easy and super cute!

Halloween is just in a few days. Are you ready to celebrate?!?
I always get as excited as my kids about this fun holiday. Maybe because of the spooky decorations all around the neighborhood, the carved out pumpkins, the crazy costumes and the abundance of candies… Yeah, it’s probably the chocolate bars that do it for me 🙂

Chocolate candies AND the fact that I can create (and EAT!) fun and indulgent sugary treats and not feel guilty about it! 



Here is my recipe for this year: Gooey and crispy rice krispies packed in individual round sizes, dipped in melted white chocolate, and decorated with black piping gel … and MORE chocolate of course!
For the decoration I can’t quite decide which of these I like best.
The cute little mummy is probably the easiest to do. Dip the rice krispies in melted white chocolate. Let the chocolate set by refrigerating for about 5 minutes. Draw the eyes, and drizzle with more melted chocolate (I use a ziploc bag, with a tiny corner cut out). Easy! I’m sure your kids can do these too. 


The skeleton (or Jack Skellington from the Nightmare Before Christmas to be precise) requires a little more drawing abilities. But as you can see, even thou I’m not really great at it, and these aren’t perfect, they are good enough! 

Here are a few words of advise: use an extra large bowl when microwaving the marshmallows to avoid cleaning up gooey and sticky stuff off the bottom of your oven. If you have never seen what happens to marshmallows in the microwave … they grow and grow, just for a few seconds. But that’s enough to mess up your oven.
Also, measure and prepare all the ingredients before you start with the recipe. You need to quickly mix all and shape the mixture into the muffin tins, when the marshmallow mixture is still warm. Once it cools off, it will harden and turn into an unmanageable large sweet lump 🙂
