Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats

It’s hard to improve a Rice Krispie Treat, but if there is one way it is likely to dip the entire thing in white chocolate! These cute little monsters would be a fun surprise to stick in your child’s (or spouse’s) lunch box to brighten their Halloween.

As a side note, I grew up having Rice Krispie treats that were made with Marshmallow Creme instead of regular marshmallows. I have always kind of felt that my Rice Krispie treats were completely superior to everyone else’s. As I have consulted numerous people about their Rice Krispie making habits, however, I am learning that I might be the only person who makes them with the creme.

Have you ever tried it?  If not you should give my way a try, it might take some getting used to, but they are less sticky, more pliable and completely delicious.

    Frankenstein is the mad scientist’s name who created “The Monster” in Mary Shelly’s novel. I cannot understand why it is that people keep referring to the ‘The Monster” as Frankenstein, when clearly the monster is a monster and Frankenstein is a man. “Monster Treats” would be a more appropriate title for these. .
