Hello, there! I’m determined to ensure that Baby ACD not grow up with an irrational fear of monsters she cannot see (after all, aren’t the real monsters disguised as humans?), so I buy all kinds of monster-themed paraphernalia for her – onesies, hair clips, a series of books that narrate how different monsters face their fears, and so on. So, as an ode to that, I have another super-easy monster-themed Halloween treat recipe today.
What you’ll need:
- Rice crispy treats, packaged or make your own – 16
- Candy eyes – 32
- White or coloured moulding chocolate or candy melts
- A small amount of melted dark chocolate or black piping gel for the mouths
- Gel food colouring, optional
- Baking sheet lined with wax paper
1. Melt the chocolate or candy melts. (more details on melting chocolate in this post). I added gel food colouring to mine.
2. I bought packaged rice crispy treats that were rectangular in shape. I cut each in half to get squares, and then moulded them into balls using a versatile tool called my hand. (I will not lie, my palm really hurt after I had made a few).
3. Using two forks, dunk each ball into the melted chocolate, covering completely. Place on wax paper-lined cookie sheet. Immediately, place the candy eyes on the balls. Using a toothpick and some melted dark chocolate with black food colouring or black piping gel, draw on the mouths. Let set.
And that’s all there is to it! Mr ACD did the honours of drawing on the mouths because of an incident involving a screaming baby. I think they turned out quite cute… Or should I say spoopy, now that my vocabulary is that much richer?
These are extremely sweet, so I made very few. Let me know what you think of these. I have one more sweet treat coming up, then onto the savouries!
