Last night, the girls and I made some Halloween treats to take as a surprise from the "Halloween Phantom" to some families in our area. But we didn't have a lot of time and I wasn't sure what to make. I had this great idea which sounded yummy too. So we whipped it together, with everyone helping, and got it finished in about 10 minutes. And it was delicious!!
All you need to do is make a batch of Rice Krispie treats and melt some white chocolate. So you need these:
My sister-in-law taught me a fantastic way to make sure your treats come out soft and chewy every time. Put your butter and marshmallows in a large microwaveable safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds. Stir, and repeat for another 30 seconds. Stir, then microwave for 15 seconds. Keep heating until butter and marshmallows are melted. Add your Rice Krispies and you're done.
and color it whatever color you want for whatevery holiday may be coming up. For Halloween, we did orange, purple, and green (though they look too pastel to be spooky). For Christmas, do red, green, and white. For Valentine's Day, do red, pink, and white. For St. Patty's Day, do different shades of green. Get the idea? Can you just imagine little red, white, and blue treats for the 4th of July?! Fun!
Just take your little balls, dip the non-flattened side in the chocolate, and set back on the tray (flat side down). Let chocolate harden and you're done! Of course, you could make these even cuter and make them into pops on a stick which would just be adorable and even more fun. But I didn't have sticks to use, so we just did balls.
Best of all, they are delicious!!
