Frankenstein Rice Krispie Treats
A little green food coloring and melted chocolate takes a classic crowd-pleaser and turns it into homemade Halloween treats resembling Frankenstein’s monster. Simply add some green food coloring to melted marshmallows and stir in the Rice Krispies before spreading them in a pan. Once the treats have cooled, cut into rectangular bars and add candy eyes and marshmallow ears before dipping the tops in melted chocolate. A piped chocolate squiggle gives Frankenstein his lovable monster grin.

Candy Corn Pretzel Hugs
These easy Halloween treats are salty and sweet, satisfying any craving. Arrange round or rectangular pretzels on a baking sheet and top with Hershey’s Kisses Hugs or the Hershey’s Kiss of your choice. Bake them in the oven for 4 minutes, just enough to soften the chocolate. As soon as the pretzels are out of the oven, place a candy corn on the chocolate. After cooling them in the refrigerator, we dare you to have just one.
