|Spooky Halloween Almond Butter Rice Krispy Treats ~ These haunting lil' ghosts would be welcome at any Halloween party. Trick or treat? Treat, please!|
I'm a huge fan of the food blog ~ Chocolate-Covered Katie. Katie always has some really cool recipes for healthier versions of traditional (and sometimes not so traditional) sweet treats. I just made her ~ Spooky Peanut Butter Rice Krispy Treats. They are a spin on the classic Rice Krispies Marshmallow Treats, the ones that we all remember from our childhood.
I made mine with the optional almond butter, used only a dash of salt & unsalted nut butter. I used melted vanilla flavored almond bark to dip the little ghosties in & regular chocolate chips for the eyes, since that is all the market had on the shelves. I did smash the rice mixture down as instructed - a lot - but the cut pieces didn't hold together as well as I'd hoped. I ended up dipping the whole treat in the white chocolate, so they would be more solid & I also made some into 'truffle balls'. The rice krispy treats flavor is fantastic & J REALLY liked them. So, even with them being a bit fragile, I'll still make them again, but next time just in the 'truffle ball' form.
I had fun making these cute, little, spooky sweet-treats, especially with the Halloween theme. J is VERY happy that I made it & gave me a big hug. Here is the link for the recipe, so you can make your own ghostly goodies. Go check out Katie's adorable pictures & her 'biting' comments on how her batch of chocolate-covered little guys met with their demise. We'll be here, working on our own batch... heehee Enjoy!
