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.
