Easy Halloween Treats – Frankenstein Krispy Treats

These chocolate Frankenstein Krispy Treats are perfect for your Halloween parties or an after school monsterific snack. They’re easy to make and only require 4 ingredients; marshmallow, chocolate rice krispies, candy melts & sprinkles.

With Halloween fast approaching my kids have been excited about picking out their costumes. This year I’m pretty sure all three of them will be Power Rangers, but the oldest two are well known for switching at the last minute, so I guess we’ll wait and see what they pick out from their costume bin Halloween morning. This year we plan to reuse one of their older costumes, I was able to score a number of costumes last November at 90% off which included three of their favorite Power Rangers, and other super heroes.

I’ve never been one for dressing up, but if you ask me to bake a Halloween treat, I’m all for it. I won’t spend hours sewing a costume together like my mother used to do when I was younger, but I’ll gladly spend hours in the kitchen baking all of the desserts for the Halloween party.

Krispy treats are an all time favorite no matter what time of the year they are served. These Frankenstein Krispy Treats are easy to make and are perfect for your next Halloween party. They can be served on a platter, or even individually bagged for a take home treat.
