I'm terribly predictable and cheesy. If there is a holiday coming up, you can pretty much expect I'll be putting together little treat bags with Caleb for all of his friends. We keep them super simple and affordable (hello, dollar spot!) and always add in some sort of baked good.
This year, I wanted to do something a bit more fun since Caleb loves to help me bake and is more and more aware of holidays. My only rule? It had to be SIMPLE and EASY. And you guys, these silly monster Rice Krispie treats are definitely both. They are basically impossible to mess up and look adorable!
What you'll need: one batch of Rice Krispie treats cut into rectangle slices, colored candy melts, big and small candy eyes.
How to: I feel silly even writing this because they are embarrassingly easy to make. But in case you want the step by step: Let Rice Krispies cool, flip out of pan onto cutting board and cut into even rectangle slices. Spread slices out on waxed paper. Melt colored candy per instructions on packaging. Dip the tops of each Rice Krispie slice into the melted candy and top with candy eyes, alternating sizes and positions to make them look monster-like. Let melted candy harden, wrap individually with Press 'n Seal or store in airtight container. Voila! Like I said, crazy simple. And your kiddos will love helping you!
