Halloween themed rice krispie squares are so fun to make! They are also peanut free, making them school friendly.
Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year.
If you haven't noticed already, I have a huge sweet tooth. I don't go a day without eating chocolate. So a day that you have free reign to eat all the chocolate and candies you want, without anyone judging you? That sounds like my kind of day!
Another thing I love is sharing my baking with my students. Which is kind of hard for me in this peanut free school when my favourite combo is peanut butter and chocolate. But this challenge has been a fun exploration of different flavour combinations and late night Google searches.
Like is Nutella peanut free? I am still a little unclear on that one...
I actually made these rice krispie squares a while ago, but I have been just so busy that I had no time to post it (life of a teacher). So finally, on a Friday where all I want to do is sleep after an exhaustively busy week,I am posting this recipe so that I can have at least one Halloween recipe this year.
And in true teacher fashion, this recipe can be made in under 15 minutes, so I don't feel like I am wasting too much time on baking. I can get to my stacks of marking and report card writing.
This is school approved and so fun to make. I think I am going to be buying more candy eyeballs this weekend!
