Little Monster Halloween Treats

As always this time of year is the busiest month in our social calendar and we have so many adventures to look forward to. But just in case we don't already have a million things to organise we added a little Halloween baking into the mix just for fun.

Halloween treats are the best and if you're looking for a quick and simple Halloween treat or party food, then you will love making these little monster treats. They are so easy and simple to make you'll can make a batch of these in no time at all not including the setting of course. We enjoyed making these monster treats for home whilst watching some Halloween favourites, but they are great ideas for a spooky party or for you to enjoy at school. 

No monster Halloween treats are complete without a monster apron, right? We can't get over how cute our monster apron  is and the fact that they can be personalised with her name is even better. My daughter gave her little monster apron a name, Boris! Of all the names she could pick Boris was the one! Gift Pup have a wonderful range of Halloween gifts for children such as aprons, mugs and notebooks to jot down all those Halloween recipes. So we have prepared all the ingredients we need for our little monsters, washed our hands and now we are Halloween apron ready...

To make these little monster treats you'll need:

For the simple and easy treats use:

12 Kelloggs Rice Krispies Squares (see below for homemade)
12 Lollipop sticks
500g white chocolate
Squires Food Colouring in Green
Small sugar edible eyes
Writing Icing Pens in Green, Red and Blue

For the homemade rice crispy squares

165g Rice Krispies
45g Butter
250g Marshmallows

For these little monster Halloween treats you can choose to either use Rice Krispies Squares for a quick and easy treat. But if you have time and you're feeling more creative you can make your own Rice Krispies Squares so continue to first step of the method. However, if you want to make a simple and easy treat skip to step four. 

1. Melt the butter in a large non-stick saucepan over a low heat on the stove. Once melted, add the marshmallows and stir continuously until melted into the butter.

2. Add the Rice Krispies into the saucepan and stir into the melted butter and marshmallows using a spatula. When thoroughly combined, line the base of a dish with parchment paper and pour the mixture in.

3. Press into the dish until compacted down and up to the sides of the dish. Leave to cool. Once set, cut into 12 Rice Crispy treats.

4. Insert a lollipop stick into the base of each monster treat and place onto a baking sheet. Then place the baking sheet into the fridge for 15 minutes. 

5. After 15 minutes. Chop your chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl over simmering water, stir occasionally until completely melted, no licking the spoon.  

6. Now to colour your chocolate. For best results, use a oil based food colouring when it comes to adding it to the chocolate. Even a drop of water can turn your melted chocolate into a gritty mess, so add the colour in small increments and stir in thoroughly before deciding whether to add more. 

6. Taking each treat carefully dip each one into the bowl of chocolate and ensure that each one is fully covered, if you want a less mess approach spoon over the chocolate over the bowl and turn as you go. Then place onto a baking tray lined with parchment, then give each monster two edible eyes before the chocolate sets.

7. Let the little monster treats to set for about fifteen minutes then it's time to give your little monsters a face, nose and eyebrows. But you can really be as adventurous you want and remember to try and be creative. Wait a few minutes and your little monsters will be ready to eat. 

These little monsters are so easy and simple to make you can make a batch of these in next to no time. We enjoyed making these monster treats for home to enjoy watching our Halloween favourites, but they are great ideas for a spooky party or for you to enjoy at school.
