Halloween is right around the corner, and with Coronavirus, we all need something to spice up our spook. These three fun and spooky snacks are a great treat to make while you’re home this Halloween. 

 

Rice Cereal Treat Mummies 

Ingredients:

Rice Krispie Treats 

3 cup white chocolate chips 

Black edible piping gel or icing 

 

 

Instructions:

  1. Unwrap Rice Cereal Treats and set aside. Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on half power for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir and return to the microwave for 20 seconds at a time (still on half power), stirring after each interval until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  3. Dip Rice Cereal Treats in the chocolate, make sure to coat the front and sides (the back side can remain uncovered).
  4. Place uncovered-side-down on a lined plate or small baking sheet.
  5. Repeat process with remaining Rice Cereal Treats.
  6. Transfer plate/baking sheet to fridge or freezer to cool for 2-3 minutes.
  7. While treats are cooling, spoon the remaining melted white chocolate into a small ziploc bag.
  8. Remove treats from the fridge/freezer.
  9. Use scissors to snip off a tiny bit of one bottom corner of the chocolate-filled bag, then drizzle chocolate in a random pattern over the treats to create the look of mummy wrapping.
  10. Return treats to the fridge/freezer for 1-2 minutes to set.
  11. Pipe two dots onto each Rice Cereal Treat to create mummy eyes. Serve or store in an airtight container for up to one week.
