I absolutely love it when I find fun recipes online, especially when they are Halloween theme. I have shared a few on my blog, and this season is no different. Thanks to the Fred Meyer’s website, I have found several new recipes that have been added to my Halloween Recipe collection. One of my favorites I want to share are these wonderfully green Frankenstein’s Monster Rice Crispy Treats.
Ok..I should state that I have changed the title of these crispy rice treats from “Gooey Frankenstein Crispy Rice Treats” to “Gooey Frankenstein’s Monster Rice Crispy Treats.” I did this for two reasons: 1. Frankenstein was the doctor not the monster, so it is Frankenstein’s Monster that these treat emulate. 2. I have always known these types of crispy treats as “Rice Crispy Treats.” Calling them “Crispy Rice Treats” felt weird.
On the plus side, this title change means nothing because the recipe has remained the same in it’s classic gooey green fashion. So whether it is a Frankenstein treat or a Frankenstein’s Monster treat, it will all taste delirious!
To make the Gooey Frankenstein’s Monster Rice Crispy Treats simply follow the instructions below. Be sure to visit Fred Meyer’s website for more fun recipes. Who knows, I may even share another here.
