I’m so excited to be partnering with Rice Krispies® to bring you this fun Halloween treat! Thank you for supporting the brands that make Wine & Glue possible.

So, I have to say that making treats for Halloween is one of my all time favorite things. Actually, making crafts and treats for Halloween is one of my favorites. I wish that it would be acceptable in the blog world to start posting Halloween ideas in like . . . . July so that I could fit in all the ideas that I have every year.

But if I did that I would get chased down like a big ogre with torches and pitch forks. #halloweenonthebrain

Green coconut flakes are sprinkled everywhere like grass, and on top of the "grass" there are pumpkin candy corn, Rice Krispies Treat Hedge Stones, and ghost marshmallows.

You can imagine how excited I was when Rice Krispies® asked me to make a Halloween treat from every kiddos favorite treat. And check it out! I made a graveyard out of Rice Krispies® Treats!! And all of it is totally edible!

So let’s talk about how I did it.

You start the way you always start when Rice Krispies® Treats, by melting the butter and marshmallows together and then you add some black food coloring! I love the food coloring gel. And you can see in the picture below that I added just a little bit and it made it a nice shade of gray.

In a pot, the marshmallow is melted down, and a toothpick with black coloring is poked into the marshmallow turning it grey.

Then after you mix in the Rice Krispies®, you press them into the pan and cut them while they are still warm and kind of mold the tops of them to make rounded tombstones. If it doesn’t work, you can just have rectangle tombstones, they will still be delicious.

Then you use some black frosting (don’t use gel!) to write RIP on them. And then add some frosting to the bottoms of them to kind of glue them to a baking sheet.

On a baking sheet, the Rice Krispies are in the shape of stone hedges in a grey color with the words RIP and stuck on the sheet pan by frosting.

Then you just add some coconut that you’ve colored green with food coloring. Add some candy pumpkins and some marshmallow ghosts!

Green coconut flakes are sprinkled everywhere like grass, and on top of the "grass" there are pumpkin candy corn, Rice Krispies Treat Hedge Stones, and ghost marshmallows.

And look! You have a perfect Halloween party treat! And the kiddos can just reach in and grab themselves a tombstone! They are ridiculsouly delicious tombstones!
