How to make Monster Eye Rice Krispie Treats:

Step 4. Mix in Cereal – Gradually add in 2 cups of the rice Krispies cereal. Mix until completely coated.

Step 5. Spread into panSpread evenly into a large pan to cool slightly.  We poured ours onto a jelly roll pan lined with parchment paper. Repeat steps with the other colors.

Step 6. Form into Balls – After this cooling time, form the rice krispies into small balls. We like to make them approximately 2 inches in diameter. 

Step 7. Add the decorationsGently press the candy eyes into the side of the balls.   

Step 8. Continue to add all of the candy eyes. Allow to cool and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you dye Halloween Rice Krispie treats?

When you want to dye your cereal to make fun and festive Halloween treats, use food coloring. You simply add the gel food coloring to the melted marshmallow mixture instead of the cereal.

The more food coloring you add, the more vibrant the color of your treats turn out. Once you obtain the desired color, then you add in your cereal.

How do you keep Rice Krispie treats crispy?

You want to store your rice krispie treats in an airtight container so they stay crispy. Also, during the cooking process, make sure you use fresh marshmallows so the bars stay intact and don’t turn soft. 

Can you Freeze Rice Krispie Treats?

Yes, you can freeze Rice Krispie Treats. If stored properly, the rice krispie treats will last about 3 to 4 months.

Allow rice kripies to completely cool to room temperature.
Then cut into individual servings or make into balls.

Completely wrap each individual serving with wax paper. Then place in a freezer safe gallon bag.
