Our love for googly eyes is only paralleled by our love for candy eyeballs (the googly eyes of the dessert world). They took these rice krispie treats from a chocolate dipped dessert to a cast of hilarious Halloween characters in no time at all. Please, take our advice and keep a package of candy eyes in your pantry. You never know when you’ll need to add some personality to an otherwise emotionless treat!
Here’s how to make your own Halloween Rice Krispie Characters:
Mummy: Melt a bowl of white candy melts. Add a cake pop stick to the center of the rice krispie treat and dip the top of the treat into the melted chocolate. Use a spoon to help spread the chocolate around. Place treat on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Place in fridge to harden chocolate. Once hardened, scoop some more of the melted chocolate into a ziploc bag and cut off a small corner. Pipe the chocolate over the treat in diagonal zig zags to create the wrapped-up mummy look. Place two candy eyeballs on top and press down slightly so they look like they are between the wraps.
Jack-o-lantern: Dip top half of treat in melted orange candy melts and place on the cookie sheet. Immediately press candy eyeballs into the melted chocolate. Create a stem by cutting a green candy melt and sticking it in the top of the pumpkin. You can also use an Airhead or a green twizzler. Use the black decorating icing to create the mouth.
Frankenstein: Dip treat in green candy melts and immediately press in two candy eyeballs. Use decorating icing to draw on hair, stitches, and a mouth. You can even add neck bolts by cutting up some black licorice and sticking it in the sides!
If you make these, we would LOVE to see them! We can’t resist some silly candy eyes 🙂
