The Easiest, No-Bake Spooky Treat to Make with Kids On Halloween
My three year old loves all things spooky, so a month or so ago, I bought some candy eyeballs so we could make something for Halloween. Our nanny took the day off, so this was it, except I was alone with both girls and needed something easy. I went with the easiest, bake-free treat one can make with a toddler: rice krispie treats! I initially planned on dipping the entire top in white melted chocolate, but went with a messy drizzle.
Melt the butter over medium heat in a large stock pot. Set 2 cups of marshmallows aside, and add the rest to the butter. Reduce heat to low and stir until melted. Once melted, add cereal, vanilla (optional) and salt. Add remaining 2 cups of marshmallows and stir, but not until they melt completely.
Line a 9×13 dish with parchment paper or bees wrap (this stuff is reusable – can’t recommend it enough). Pour the mixture into the dish and gently press it down to fill the dish. Let it sit 45-60 minutes. Cut the rice krispie treats into squares or rectangles (whatever you prefer) and get ready to decorate.
Melt vanilla melting wafers. I did this in the microwave. Drizzle with a spoon if you want to be messy and have some fun, or with a pastry bag if you’re more together than I am and know where yours is located. Add 2 eyes and let it sit until hardened.
