Make Your Own Monsters Treats ~ $100 Giveaway!

Apple Spice Rice Krispies Treat

Are you ready for a fun Halloween party recipe to make with your children?

Our Rice Krispies challenge team, Amy of She Wears Many Hats, Robyn of Add a Pinch and Julie of Mommie Cooks and I, planned a “Make Your Own Monster” party that is sure to be the highlight of your Halloween season.

We knew when The Motherhood and Rice Krispies announced Halloween as the theme for this challenge, we wanted to plan a party where children could easily get in on the action of making treats they’d be happy to show off, as well as devour.

Our “Make Your Own Monster” party certainly met and exceeded that expectation!

And the party just couldn’t be simpler!

Make a recipe of Rice Krispies treats with the addition of apple pie spice to create a classic Fall favorite treat. Then allow your children to let their creativity shine as they make monsters using favorite cookie cutters, colorful frosting, and candies.

For our party monsters we used gingerbread man cookie cutter for the full-size monster, a skull cookie cutter for Frankenstein’s Bride, and then simply cut squares for Frankenstein himself as well as a few of his closest monster-y friends!

We think the “Make Your Own Monster” party will be an instant hit at your house this Halloween!!!

Be sure to check out all the great entries over at the Rice Krispies Treats Facebook page. Their facebook page is full of great ideas for creating fun Rice Krispies Treats year round.
