Rice Krispies treats are a classic homemade recipe, most often because they’re incredibly simple and easy to make. They’re the perfect last minute snack or dessert since they can be cooked on the stove top and served nearly immediately. This recipe takes that classic, and gives it a monster sugar-coated twist. Don’t expect these friendly monsters to last in your for kitchen long before tiny hands scoop these googly eyed dudes up, right off the counter!
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
8 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies cereal
½ teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
Neon food coloring
Measuring Cups & Spoons
Bring pot to a medium heat on the stovetop, add butter and begin to melt.
Next, add 5 cups of the mini-marshmallows leaving 3 cups aside.
Stir continuously on the stovetop until the marshmallows and butter have melted and evenly combined.
Remove from heat.
Divide the the melted marshmallow mixture into 3 bowls.
Add different food coloring colors to each bowl, and mix until a desired color is achieved.
Add 2 cups of rice krispies and 1 cup of un-melted mini-marshmallows to each bowl, and mix until all of the rice krispies are coated and binding together.
Greasing your hands, pick up a small handful of rice krispie mixture, and roll into an uneven ball, and then roll into the matching colored sugar.
Place ball on parchment lined cookie sheet. Add any candy eyes, gummies or licorice lace to decorate.
Continue until you have used up all your mixtures in each color, making an array of monster designs in 3 different colors.
Let cool, and enjoy!
