  • 6 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 6 cups mini marshmallows
  • 6 ½ cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • candy melts your choice of color
  • candy eyes

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and mini marshmallows.

  2. In a separate large bowl, measure out 6 ½ cups rice krispies cereal.

  3. Pour the melted butter and marshmallow mixture over the cereal, and stir until evenly distributed.

  4. Scoop the mix onto wax paper or lightly-greased rectangular cake pan. Then let it cool.

  5. Cut them into 12 evenly spaced little rectangles, and then set aside.

  6. In small microwaveable bowls, add candy melts of your choice. Microwave at 20 second intervals, stirring after each time.

  7. When the candy melts are fully melted and runny in consistency, dip the rice krispie treats in half-way.

  8. Immediately add the candy eyes and any sprinkles to the monster rice krispie treats, then let them harden on a wax paper. Enjoy!
