These crunchy creepers were made a few years ago, back before I ever thought of starting a blog.

So… unfortunately, I don’t have as many pictures to share as I’d like but I think you can get the idea from the picture above.

Basically, you just make Rice Kripies Treats, mold them a little with your hands while they’re warm, and then use various candies to decorate their creepy faces.

Everything from licorice, to candy corn, to m&m’s, to jelly beans, to chocolate chips – anything goes here.

Use the recipe on the cereal box, or use my favorite treats recipe. I prefer to increase the butter and decrease the cereal called for in the original recipe. I prefer a gooier Rice Krispies Treat.

My go to recipe for Krispies Treats:

Melt 1/2 a stick of butter in a large sauce pan.

Add a bag (usually around 10.5 oz) of mini-marshmallows and stir over low heat until melted.

Turn off the heat and add 5 cups rice cereal. Stir to combine.

To make the heads:

While it’s still warm, grab a handful of the mixture and shape it into a mostly oval shape. Then pinch in the sides a little until it resembles a skull.

Place your candies on top to add facial features. The candy should stick if the treats are still warm. If not, you can use a little frosting or honey as glue.
