These Franken-Treats are my Healthy Halloween spin on the classic rice krispy treats. My kids love to make them and eat them! This recipe is really great because it calls for no marshmallows, so they are perfect for kids with dietary restrictions. And don’t worry no one will miss the marshmallows.
1/2 cup chunky almond butter
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1 tbsp. Earth Balance
3.5 cups Rice Crisp Cereal
All natural green food coloring
¼ cup chocolate chips + a few extra for the eyes
Prepare an 8 by 8 inch square pan, with parchment paper.
In a large pot over medium heat, add the brown rice syrup, Earth Balance, almond butter, Stir well and remove from heat. Stir in 3.5 cups of rice crisp cereal until thoroughly combined and food coloring and stir so more. Scoop into pan and spread evenly. Press down with fingers place in freezer to set for 10 minutes while you make the melted chocolate.
Melt chocolate on stove top with a double broiler, remove from heat and set aside. Take out treats and cut into squares. Place on a large platter, spoon melted chocolate on the top ¼ of the treats and then cover with chocolate sprinkles, this is the hair. Next put 2 dots of frosting for the eyes and then 2 chocolate chips for the eye balls. Store extra treat in the refrigerator.
