Kids in the Kitchen: Frankenstein Rice Krispie Sticks


As I said yesterday, Jocelyn and I have made a switch this week so I am the lucky one in Denver with her three kids.  Did I mention  it  is  also Fall Break here . . .  that means nobody is in school so we have all day to play!  No worries, I came prepared with my Pinterest boards and lots of fun crafts and activities.

These Frankenstein Rice Krispies were a huge hit with the kids!  There are lots of Frankenstein goodies out there on Pinterest, but we adapted ours from this Pin.  Of course some wanted happy monsters, and one wanted scary monsters . . . . call you tell which wanted the scary Frankenstein?

 

Frankenstein Rice Krispie Sticks

Ingredients:

1 batch rice krispie treats made according to the directions on the box with the addition of green food color
1 package Wilton Eyes (m&ms or frosting would work too)
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
orange and black gel frosting (or whatever colors you have)
pretzel sticks
colored mini marshmallows
12-15 popsicle sticks

Directions:

Make rice krispie treats according to package directions only add green color to the mixture.  Allow to set completely.  Turn the pan out onto a cutting board and cut into squares.  We cut 12 squares, but you could do 15.  Push a popsicle stick into the square.   Melt chocolate chips in microwave and dip end of square.  Allow to cool completely (overnight).

Create Frankenstein by adding mini marshmallows on pretzel sticks, eyes (we used a thick paste of powdered sugar and water- some of the melted chocolate would work also), and eye brows and mouth (happy or scary).

These Frankenstein Treats would be fun to share with other little monsters:  Wrap them up in a party cello bag and add our Frankenstein Tag you can print here!
