Frankenstein Rice Krispies Treats for Halloween

frankenstein-rice-krispies-treats

Today Kaley and I are making all kinds of snacks for tomorrow’s Halloween party and she really wanted to make these Frankenstein Rice Krispies Treats and they turned out to be a pretty easy project.

Just make the treats like the traditional recipe calls for except you will need to add in green food coloring into the marshmallow/butter mix when you are melting them.

Press the treats into a rectangular pan/dish and allow to cool.  Cut the treats into rectangles and use food gel or melting chocolate to create the mouth and hair.  Stick mini marshmallows into its neck with toothpicks (I broke them in half) and either buy candy eyes or use white chocolate.

DIY Tombstone Halloween Party Candy Holders Made with a Cricut

DIY-tombstone-candy-holders

Tomorrow is our Halloween party so last night I made up little Tombstone candy holders for each of the kids coming to the party.  The tombstone pattern can be found in the Cricut Design Space.

For this project, you will need card stock (I chose black and grey), a Cricut marker (I used silver on the black card stock and black on the grey card stock) and a scoring tool.  You can get away without the scoring tool but it makes the project 100 times easier with one.  Also, you can choose from 4 different Tombstone designs (each one costs 99¢ so I picked 2 and ended up only really liking one so Kaley is the only person who got the second design – see pic below)

It really is so simple to do projects with a Cricut Explore machine because the software pretty much does all the work for it. It will tell you step by step what you need to do for each step in the process.

Once your pieces are cut out, you will need to either glue or tape the tombstones together. I choose an Elmer’s Craft Bond adhesive roller but it wasn’t strong enough to hold them together with candy inside so I had to go back and tape the inside. Maybe a stronger glue would have been better???

Here is a close up view from the top:

I just left super Walmart off east Colonial Dr where there is a HUGE clearance section (including a ton of Lego sets).  Prices were amazingly low but they seemed like a good mark-down.  Great way to stock up on some Christmas gifts.
