Halloween Recipes

Halloween is such a fun holiday to cook for. There are so many different options and such a wide range freak factor.

I love shrimp on the brain dip with its cocktail sauce blood and graphic knife. However those kind of visuals are a bit much for some people.

Then there are the pumpkin jack-o-lantern cookies my family has loved since I was a child. The candy and frosting decorations are far from scary.

Making The Yummy Monsters

These monsters and the mummy rice krispie treats I shared last week are more on the cute side of things. They are kid friendly both in looks and taste, but adults love them too!

The rice crispy treat recipe below makes really thick and chewy bars when made in a 9×13″ pan. If you want to make more servings, feel free to use a larger pan and make thinner bars.

I used white chocolate dyed with powdered food color dye for my bars. You want to use either powder or oil based colors so your chocolate doesn’t seize. 

If you want to make adding the powder a bit easier, you can stir it into a teaspoon or two of melted coconut oil.

A few drops of oil based flavorings makes for a fun addition as well. A drop or two of lemon oil and blueberry oil makes for fun blueberry lemonade monsters! 

Just be careful to add slowly and taste as you go, a little bit goes a long way!

You could also use candy melts already dyed in the color you want. There are a lot of colors available.

Once your rice crispy treats are set, all you have to do is dunk one side in melted chocolate. Spread it on smooth, give it a swirl or even make little spikes with a knife.

Then affix some eyeballs to the chocolate however you’d like. I think the mix of small eyeballs with the large eyeball candies is especially fun.

After that all you have to do is let them set! Easy peasy!

Maybe you’ll want to make some of each for the Halloween class party. The kids will love them!

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 20 ounces marshmallows
  • 12 ounce box crispy rice cereal
  • 16 ounces blue candy melts
  • small eye candies
  • large eye candies


  • Grease 9×13″ pan
  • In a large glass bowl, melt together marshmallows and butter in microwave until they stir smooth.  This will depend on your microwave but should take somewhere between 30-45 seconds.
    20 ounces marshmallows, ¼ cup butter
  • Stir in cereal. 
    12 ounce box crispy rice cereal
  • Scoop mixture into greased pan and press down to form bars.  (I like to spray the bottom of a measuring cup with nonstick spray and use that to press the mixture down so it doesn’t stick to my hands.)
  • Allow bars to cool and set, then cut into pieces the size you’d like.
  • Slowly melt the blue candy melts in a glass bowl in the microwave. I like to start with a 30 second burst, then do 15 second bursts after that.  Stir well after each trip to the microwave and stop as soon as it stirs smooth. Be careful not to scorch the chocolate.
    16 ounces blue candy melts
  • Dip one side of each rice crispy treat into the melted chocolate. You can leave a smooth finish or add texture with a spatula or knife. Affix eyeballs and allow to set.
    small eye candies, large eye candies
  • Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
