Halloween Rice Krispie Treats

These cute little Halloween Rice Krispie Treats are such a fun twist on the traditional kid-friendly dessert. Perfect for class parties, work potlucks, or any time you need a fun holiday treat. Caramel and sweetened condensed milk gives these sweet snacks a delicious Fall flavor, and dipped in chocolate, they’re fun to eat and taste absolutely delicious!

Some Tips for Dipping Rice Krispie Squares

  • You can use regular chocolate chips, white, milk, or semi-sweet. Just add a tablespoon of vegetable shortening for every one cup of chips when melting This will give the melted chocolate a smoother, thinner texture for coating the squares.
  • I’ve also used Wilton Candy Melts, which can be found at Walmart, Michaels or several other craft stores.
  • To melt chocolate, place into a microwave bowl and heat on medium for about thirty seconds,then stir well.
  • Continue heating in 30 second intervals until the chips are completely smooth and melted. The chips or melts will hold their shape until stirred, so it is very important to stir well between each interval.
  • Once you’ve dipped the squares you can decorate the Halloween Rice Krispie Treats with any kind of sprinkles or candies. Just make sure you sprinkle before the chocolate cools and hardens.

  • 12×18 inch pan



  • Spray a jelly roll pan (12 inches x 18 inches) with non-stick cooking spray, or lightly grease using butter or margarine.
  • Measure the 9 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal into a large bowl.
  • In a heavy pot, melt butter, milk, caramels, and marshmallows on medium heat, stirring constantly.
  • When marshmallows and caramels are completely melted, pour over the cereal and stir until well blended.
  • Spread coated Rice Krispies firmly and evenly onto the jelly roll pan. The mixture will be sticky. I have found the easiest way to do this is to lightly butter my fingers, or spray them with non-stick cooking spray, and press the mixture into the pan.
  • Cool completely.
  • When the Rice Krispies are completely cooled, cut them into 36 squares.

For Ghosts on a Stick

  • Insert a lollipop stick or popsicle stick in the bottom of each square. Dip the square in white chocolate and place on waxed paper. Quickly add two mini chocolate chips for eyes before chocolate hardens. Let chocolate cool and harden. Ghosts can be wrapped in decorative bags or cellophane, or kept in an airtight container.

For Decorative Squares

  • Dip a corner of each square in melted chocolate and place on waxed paper. Sprinkle seasonal sprinkles on chocolate. Allow chocolate to cool and harden before serving or storing in an airtight container.

  1. I saw these in Facebook and decided to give them a try since I needed to make a snack for my son’s soccer team. These tasted amazing because of the caramel and the condensed milk, but they didn’t set up as well as I’d hoped. They were still falling apart after several hours of setting. Not sure if it was something On my end or what. Oh well, the kids loved them and so did I.

    1. It could be a difference in the brands of condensed milk and caramel used, I’m not sure. Next time you make them, add another cup of Rice Krispies or more if needed. This should help them set up quicker. You could also try putting the pan in the fridge to help them set up quicker. I’m glad you liked them!

  2. Does 1/2 “cube” of butter mean 1/2 of a stick of butter? I just want to make sure to get the right amount….. Sounds yummy. I think my hubby will love these!!!
