Mummy Rice Krispies Treats are an easy and quick Halloween recipe. Perfect for kids or school parties.
Grease or spray with non-stick spray a 9" x 13" pan and line with parchment paper, leaving an overhang on the long edged sides of 1-2".
Using a double boiler method (placing a few inches of water in a sauce pan and topping with a bowl that doesn't touch the water), melt marshmallows and butter together over medium heat.
Once marshmallows are melted, add vanilla if using and mix well. Quickly mix in rice krispies and pour into prepared pan. Press firmly down (I spray a measuring cup with non-stick spray and use this flat surface to level out and compact the mixture). Let sit for 20-60 minutes or until marshmallow has firmed up.
Remove rice krispies from pan using the parchment sling. Using a warm knife (run it under hot water for a few seconds) and cut into rectangular pieces (12-18 pieces depending upon how big you'd like them).
Using a double boiler method again, melt white chocolate** over low heat until mostly melted or melt in the microwave using short bursts (20 seconds to start and reduce to 10 seconds until mostly melted). Stir until all lumps are dissolved.
Place melted chocolate in a pipping bag or a plastic freezer bag. Cut a small corner off the bag and drizzle the white chocolate back and forth over cut pieces and add mini chocolate chips as "eyes" as you go.
Let set for 60 minutes or over night.
* or Kamut puffed cereal which is a healthier version. See blog post above for further details.
** when melting the white chocolate it is important that it doesn't get too hot, if it does it will seize and become unusable.
