Witch Halloween Rice Krispie Treats Supplies
You don’t need much for these witch treats – just a few things you can pick up at your local grocery store or craft room (if you’re looking for the chocolate melts).
Or if you’re an online shopper like me, you can get all of these on Amazon delivered right to your house in days. Pretty sure I have an entire closet full of minute to win it games supplies straight from Amazon.
Okay or just go to your local grocery store and get out of the house. That’s okay too.
But if you want to buy them online, I’ve linked all of the items below for you to see exactly what I’m talking about. Not everyone knows what vibrant green candy melts are.
- 16 Rice Krispy Treats (store-bought or homemade – see note below)
- 10 oz vibrant green candy melts
- Candy eyeballs
- Chocolate jimmies
- Green nonpareils sprinkles
- 8 Oreos
- 16 dark chocolate Hershey kisses
- Sandwich bag or piping bag
I mentioned in the list that you can use homemade rice krispy treats if you have a favorite recipe BUT make sure that the recipe you’re using is one that actually stays together, not one that falls apart in your hand when you pick them up. I like rice krispy treats that are ooey and gooey when I’m making homemade, but those would not work well for this because you want them to hold their shape.
When in doubt, just go with the store-bought ones. They’re the perfect size, shape, and well flavor.
How to Make the Halloween Rice Krispy Treats
First things first, if you’re using store-bought rice krispy treats – unwrap those suckers. And while you’re unwrapping, watch this video to see how to make these!
You don’t want to be melting chocolate and realize that you haven’t unwrapped them yet. That’s just a pain.
So unwrap them first, then get started with the steps below.
Melt candy melts according to the package instructions. I prefer the double boiler stovetop method over using a microwave because it’s easy to overcook them in the microwave. But you can do both, just don’t overcook them in the microwave or they aren’t going to turn out right.
Once your chocolate is melted, dip the rice krispy treat into the melted chocolate. Use a spatula to smooth out the chocolate then set aside any remaining chocolate to use later.
And any you have left after that, this monster chocolate bark would be a fun way to finish it off!
The spatula part is optional but unless you’re a rice krispy treat dipping expert, you’re going to want it to get the nice smooth witch face.
Add mini eyes and sprinkles to create the witch’s hair and mouth. And don’t forget some warts – the green sprinkles make the cutest warts ever. Or at least the yummiest.
Once the witch faces are all decorated, pop those babies into the refrigerator for 15 minutes or until the chocolate is hardened.
How to Make the Witch Hats
While the witch faces are chilling in the refrigerator, it’s time to make the witch hats. I mean that’s what makes these less Frankenstein, more witch. But if you do like Frankenstein, I’ve got some great monster Halloween games for adults that might be right up your alley!
To make the hats, twist open the Oreos and remove the cream filling. (You can totally save that to use in another dessert – don’t throw it away!)
Transfer the remaining candy melts (the chocolate you melted earlier) into a sandwich bag (or a piping bag like this one, I always have a bunch on hand). Cut off the corner and pipe a dime size amount of candy melts on the Oreo logo and top with a Hershey’s kiss.
Once the treats are out of the refrigerator, apply a thin strip of candy melts (using the sandwich bag) to the top of the Halloween rice krispy treats and attach the hat.
And even though they’re super cute and tasty, make sure to allow the hat to dry before serving. You don’t want all those cute little hats to fall over the floor before they even get to the table!
