As part of the Wilton Sweet Treat team, I get the opportunity to try out new products to make fun things like these silly Rice Krispie Treat Monsters.
It’s hard to believe this is the first edible craft I’ve shared on Hungry Happenings this Halloween season. It’s almost October. I can’t even believe that. Our party is in less than one month.
I really better get moving, but before I start decking out my house, I thought I’d get to work in the kitchen making some fun holiday treats.
I figured I’d start with something super easy.

As part of the Wilton Sweet Treat team I am compensated for developing recipes and sharing them with you, but all opinions stated are my own.
If you are looking to use homemade Rice Krispie Treats, head on over to my new website, HowToMakeRiceKrispies.com. You can also check out how we taste tested 20 versions of the Rice Krispie Treat recipe to come up with the absolute BEST Rice Krispie Treat Recipe. This would be a great way to add your own twist and flavor to these!
Once they are made, just cut them into rectangles similar to the store bought treats.
Decorate your treats.
- Pipe orange icing onto the rice krispie treats to make the frosting look furry.
- Cut short pieces of black licorice laces and attach them to the frosted cereal treat bar creating a mouth.
- Add some white candy fangs.
- Cut each of the eyeball candy skewers in half, so that you have two separate sticks with eyes on top.
- Poke one or two eyes in the tops of the rice krispie treat bars.
NOTE: If you can’t find the gummy candy eyes, you can attach jumbo candy eyes to lollipop sticks or you can draw eyes on marshmallows and attach them to lollipop sticks.
Let’s make some more cute monsters.
rice krispie treats
dark chocolate frosting
jumbo candy eyes
green and white modeling chocolate (recipe for modeling chocolate)
3 disposable pastry bags
grass pastry tip
small metal cutters – oval, star, half moon, round
- Start by putting about 1/4 – 1/3 cup of orange frosting into one pastry bag and chocolate frosting in another.
- Fit a coupler onto a third pastry bag and add a grass tip.
- Snip the end off both the orange and chocolate pastry bags.
- Then put both pastry bags down into the third.
- Pipe the fur onto the rice krispie treats, twisting the bag every so often so that the colors don’t just end up in a line.
- Pipe by squeezing on the bag with the tip close to the treat, then stop squeezing and quickly pull up.
- This will create long strands that will fall over and look shaggy.
- Cover the top of each treat him completely in orange and black fur.
- At some jumbo candy eyes to each treat.
- Roll out some green and white modeling chocolate and cut into your shapes for mouths and teeth.
- If you want you can even add a few red tongues.
- I find it easiest to roll out my modeling chocolate on a silicone nonstick mat using a fondant roller.
- If you don’t have either, lightly dust your counter top with cornstarch and lightly dust your rolling pin with cornstarch and roll out the modeling chocolate.
- Add the mouths to your monsters and they are ready to serve.
