I've been wanting to make something out of rice crispy treats for a while now.
I though I was all creative in thinking of a Frankenstein monster.
Well, there are other Frankenstein crispy treats out there. I guess I'm not as original as I thought. Oh, well...
... I decided to make them anyway. I'm glad I did... they were a lot of fun!
So, you'll need a whole bunch of goodies! You can use whatever candies you choose for decoration. I just thought jellybeans, sprinkles, an edible color marker, and decorating gel would work great for Frankenstein's face.
I chose to color white candy melts with food coloring made especially for candy making, instead of buying green candy melts. Wilton doesn't always cover well for me, so when I make cake pops or candy coated treats, I like using Guittard Melt 'n Mold. It's the brand available at my local craft store.
You can totally buy green candy melts. It does save some time.
So, I bet you'd like to know how to make these little monsters, right?
Frankenstein Rice Crispy Treats
- 8-10 Rice Krispies Treats
- 1-1/2 Bags (12 OZ.) White Vanilla Flavor Melting Chocolate OR Green Vanilla Flavor Melting Chocolate
- Blue and Yellow Candy Coloring, Optional
- 8-10 Wood Sticks
- 2-4 Black Decorating Gel Tubes
- Black Food Writer Marker
- Confetti Sprinkles
- Assorted Jellybeans
- Foam Board, For Placing Treats To Dry On
Begin by refrigerating your rice krispies treats for about an hour, so they are easier to work with. Pre-puncture your foam board with a wooden stick, about 2 inches apart, so your treats don't touch when drying.
Mark black dots on 16-20 confetti sprinkles with the food marker to make eyes. Next, cut your jellybeans in half, to make the bolts for Frankenstein's neck.
In a 2 cup measuring cup, melt your candy melts in the microwave, according to the package instructions. If coloring the melts, add the blue and yellow coloring, stirring to blend. Add the coloring until you get the desired color of green. Dip about half an inch of the wood stick in the melted candy melts. Then insert it about half way into the krispies treat. Carefully dip the treat into the melted candy melts, coating completely. Gently tap the excess off. Place your coated treat into the pre-punctured foam board to dry. You can stick them in the refrigerator to speed up the drying process; about 20 minutes.
Once you have coated all the treats and they have dried, you can start decorating! Using the black decorating gel, draw Frankenstein's hair on the front of the treat. Then draw his face. Place two confetti sprinkles on the gel eyes. Lastly, place a dot of black gel on the cut side of the jellybeans and place on each side of the treat for the bolts. Place the treats flat on parchment paper to dry, just so the gel can set and not drip off. Makes 8-10 treats.
