Easy Halloween Treats on an orange pumpkin platter

October is here! Let the Halloween treat making commence. In this post I’m sharing how to make easy Death by Chocolate Halloween Krispie Treats.

Thanks for stopping by! I’m so glad that you did. Making spooky rice krispie treats is so much fun. Let’s face it, who hasn’t made rice krispie treats but they’re easy to adapt for holidays too.

We’re bringing out the coco krispies and some chocolate embellishments to make a spooktacular dessert the whole family will love.

By the way, before I forget, here are a few more Halloween treat recipes on the blog that you might enjoy too: Pumpkin Fluff Dip, Boo-Nana Pops, and Halloween Bark.

Easy Halloween Treats with chocolate and orange drizzle with candy eyes

Here’s what you’ll need to make these festive treats (Full printable recipe card can be found by scrolling down): Coco Krispies Cereal, Marshmallows, Butter, Milk Chocolate Chips, White Chocolate Chips, Orange Food Coloring and Candy Eyes.

Halloween Krispie Treats

Step 1: Measure out the Coco Krispies needed and add to a bowl and set aside until ready to use. In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat. When the butter has completely melted, add the marshmallows. Stir constantly until the marshmallows have melted and smooth.

Your arms will be about to fall off at this point.

Step 2: Remove the melted marshmallow mixture from the heat and add the cereal. Stir to incorporate everything together.

Step 3: Next, lightly spray a 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray then add the marshmallow cereal mixture. Spray the back of a spatula with cooking spray and use the spatula to evenly press down the krispie treat mixture.

Step 4: Make two double boilers by putting a bowl on top of a sauce pot with water for melting the chocolate. Add the milk chocolate chips to one and the white chocolate chips to another. Heat the pots over medium heat and stir the morsels in each pot constantly until melted smooth.

The milk chocolate can be melted in the microwave but I couldn’t figure out how to reduce the power level to medium on the microwave that I’ve had for ten years.Β  πŸ˜•

Step 5: Carefully remove the bowls using a pot holder. Add a few drops of the orange food coloring to the white chocolate and stir to incorporate. Use a spoon to drizzle the chocolate, alternating between the chocolate and orange chocolate mixture over the krispie treats. Add candy eyes, if desired. Allow the treats to cool completely. Cut into squares for serving.
