Frankenstein Rice Krispy Treats
We love this idea for a Halloween party treat! Who doesn’t like sweet crispy treats? Made with a rich creamy homemade peanut butter, a little spooky green color, chocolate - and you have a delicious decoration for your Halloween party table. Enjoy!
For the rice krispies:
- 2 cups vegan marshmallows
- 4 cups organic rice cereal (gluten-free)
- ½ tbsp. Matcha powder or other natural green food color
- 1/3 cup peanut butter made with the NutraMilk
For the hair/mouth:
- 1/2 cup nondairy chocolate, melted + 1 Tbsp. coconut oil or shortening to smooth out
- chocolate sprinkles
For the eyes:
- 12 homemade googly eyes
For the neck bolts:
- 6 vegan marshmallows, sliced in half
- 6 popsicle sticks
For peanut butter
- 2 cups (275g) peanuts (untoasted, unsalted)
- pinch salt (optional)
- Making the peanut butter
- Place peanuts in the NutraMilk container.
- Press Butter cycle, set for 2-3 minutes.
- Press Start.
- Open the container lid.
- If necessary, set for an additional 1-2 minutes for a creamier butter.
- Line an 8×8 pan with wax paper.
- In a medium saucepan, melt the peanut butter and vegan marshmallows on medium/low heat, stirring often.
- Once they are completely melted, remove from the heat and add the natural food coloring until well-combined. Add the rice cereal.
- Place in the 8×8 pan and pat down gently. Allow to cool down for 10 minutes. Cut into 6 rectangles.
- Place a popsicle stick into each treat.
- Coat the tops of the treats with melted chocolate and sprinkles.
- “Glue” the homemade googly eyes with melted chocolate for the eyes and the marshmallows for the bolts. Draw the mouths with more melted chocolate. Allow to set.
