It’s Halloween week on the blog! Yes a few weeks early, but only to give you guys lots of fun ideas for upcoming parties!

Today, no surprise, is a recipe for Mint Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats. As y’all know I love a good, perfect crispy treat recipe!

If you don’t know what makes a “Perfect Rice Krispie Treat” than let me tell you.

First, it must be thick.

And second, it can’t be dry and hard to bite. It’s got to be soft and chewy!

Using my favorite rice crispy treat recipe, I went to work to make a delicious Mint Chocolate Chip flavor! I mean, in order to live up to “halloween fun” it had to start off green!

Mint Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats decorated like Frankenstein for Halloween!

How to Make Halloween Rice Krispie Treats:

Start by melting butter and marshmallow in a large pot over low heat.

After you have melted your butter and marshmallow together, add in a drop of green food coloring (I love using these Americolor gels in leaf green). Also stir in 3/4 tsp peppermint extract. Make sure to NOT use mint extract, unless you like the taste of toothpaste.

Next, stir in your cereal until completely combined. Fold in your extra marshmallows (these help give the krispy treats extra chewiness and keep them soft). Finally, sprinkle in some mini chocolate chips and give ONE quick stir. These will melt slightly, but that’s okay.

Press into a parchment paper lined square baking pan (I use a 9-inch pan for these). Don’t skip out on the parchment paper, as you’ll want an easy removal to make the Frankensteins!

Allow rice krispie treats to firm up for at least an hour. Remove parchment paper from pan and place on cutting board. Cut your treats in half, then in fourths. You’ll end up with 8 rectangles.

To decorate, melt white chocolate morsels (I actually prefer using this Ghirardelli White Chocolate Wafers) and add a drop of green food coloring. Spread over the tops of your Mint Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats. Allow to set (about 5-10 minutes).

Melt your Dark Chocolate wafers and dip each frankenstein head into the chocolate. Reserve the extra melted chocolate to pipe on the scars!

Use your remaining melted chocolate to attach mini marshmallow “bolts” to the side of his head/neck. Also attach the eyes at this point.

For the mouth and scars, put the remaining melted chocolate in a small ziploc bag with the end snipped off. Pipe on the scar and mouth to each Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treat. Voila.

Easy, delicious Mint Chocolate Chip Rice Krispie Treats

    I love how fun and easy these were to make – my kids liked to decorate their own little frankensteins! Such a great Halloween treat!

  7. I tried this and my chips melted. They taste great but if the chips melt when you mix them in it kind of takes over the green color with the chocolate.
