Hi all and welcome once again to #HalloweenTreatsWeek!
You may recall that I have participated in this event for the last few years.
I used to rarely post any Halloween stuff so I had joined to kind of force myself to do some.
Well Angie runs such a great week that it made me start to love doing Halloween treats.
And now each year I not only participate in the two mandatory days but I make something for all six days!
This year I’m doing all six days as well!
We are starting off with a fun little activity/treat for kiddos.
Though I have no kiddos and this was fun to make as an adult.
So feel free to make these if you don’t have kids.
I’m not a fan of any scary Halloween things.
All my Halloween stuff has to be cute.
I’ve made Haunted Gingerbread Houses before but they are a lot of work and usually don’t taste that great.
Rice Krispies are way easier to make and way more tasty…at least to me.
I went round and round on trying to decide if I would make a black haunted house or a purple one.
Clearly I went with purple.
I tried to think of them as haunted houses in a Scooby Doo cartoon (those meddling kids). 🙂
If you can make regular rice krispie treats then you can make these.
And you can decorate them however you like.
I chose to use sprinkles.
As well as some pumpkins, ghosts, and gummy bats.

- For the Rice Krispie Treats:
- 6 TBSP unsalted butter
- 16 ounces marshmallows
- 12 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
- 3 drops purple food coloring
- For the Icing:
- 2 1/2 TBSP meringue powder (you can find this at the grocery store or craft supply store)
- 1 1/2 tsp cream of tarter
- 1/3 cup warm water
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 3 drops orange food coloring
- For the Decorating:
- Halloween candy decorations such as candy pumpkins and bats
- Halloween Sprinkles
- In large saucepan melt butter over low heat.
- Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
- Remove from heat.
- Add cereal and purple food coloring. Stir until well coated.
- Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool.
- Cut the treats the size you would like your house to be. T
- hen cut a square…cut that diagonal so that it makes the roof. How many you get is really going to depend on how big you cut your houses. I got five houses and some ends to eat as I decorated.
- For the Icing:
- Using a stand mixer with the paddle or whisk attachment, add the meringue powder, cream of tarter, and water. Then hand whisk the ingredients together to make sure there are no lumps.
- Add the powdered sugar and mix on low speed for about three minutes. Increase speed to medium and let mix for about 5-7 minutes. Add orange food coloring if using and mix until color is fully dispersed.
- This is a thicker icing for Haunted house making.
- Place icing in piping bag.
- Using the icing, attach the roof to the top of the house and let it dry a little.
- Continue to decorate as desired.
