This is Halloween, This is Halloween! In this town we call home, everyone hail to the pumpkin song…. yes the song from The Nightmare before Christmas has been stuck in my head all week!
I do believe that it’s because Halloween is only a few weeks away!! Who’s ready? I know I am!
While I may not be into making “gross” and “gory” Halloween foods I do like to make some things that scream “Halloween”. Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats do just that, don’t ya think?
Now I already know that when I post these I’ll get comment or e-mails about them being unhealthy and full of “this and that”. Well I suppose it’s all in how you make them really.
I made these with regular rice krispy cereal, butter, marshmallows and chocolate. I’m sorry but sometimes I just want my comfort food/childhood favorites! :) It’s Halloween! I’m allowed to cheat ;)
However if you’re looking to make these a bit better for you here are some substitution ideas:
Rice Krispie Cereal — use Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice – Gluten Free Cereal
Marshmallows — use Dandies Vegan Marshmallows
Butter — use Earth Balance
Green Food Coloring — use Natural Green Food Coloring
Chocolate — use Enjoy Life Foods, Mini Chips, Semi-Sweet Chocolate
Eyes — I don’t know about this one, sorry.
For the ones you see here, I just used regular rice krispie cereal, large marshmallows, unsalted butter, melting chocolate wafers, yellow food coloring and blue food coloring along with a few candy eyes that I found at Hobby Lobby!
