Halloween Rice Krispie Treats Everyone Will Love

We love going to The Yard House. My husband and I love the food and beer selection, the girls love the special treats that come with the kids meal. I decided to recreate their recipe but make them into easy Halloween Rice Krispie Treats, perfect for all of the Halloween activities we have coming up this month. 

To make these Halloween Rice Krispie Treats you need the not so secret ingredient, Halloween Oreos. They taste just like regular Oreo’s but have an orange creme center that takes these Rice Krispie Treats from really good to really festive. I had to go to Target to find them but if you can’t find them locally, I linked them in my Amazon Shop here

There are two things that I do a little different than some other recipes. First, I melt the butter and the marshmallows in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. The key here is to keep stirring and don’t rush it. You could easily melt this in the microwave but for some reason, I think it tastes better this way. Second, I butter my 9×13 pan instead of spraying it with non stick spray. I like having the butter taste match up to the butter flavor of the Rice Krispie Treats. 

These Halloween Rice Krispie Treats are super easy and quick to make. Butter you pan and put your Oreos in a gallon zip lock bag. Using a mallet, or rolling pin, or wine bottle, mash the Oreos. I left mine a little bigger because I wanted to see the black and orange pieces clearly in the treats. 

Combine the Oreos with the Rice Krispies, melt the butter and marshmallows, then combine. It’s really that simple. 

I cut these into square but you could use festive cookie cutters or put them on sticks like they do at The Yard House. This will be the perfect dessert to go with our traditional Halloween dinner of Vollmer Chili.

I love when you combine the marshmallow mixture into the Rice Krispies – they literally snap, crackle and pop and I immediately become an 8 year old girl. Something so nostalgic about that sound for me.
