Favorite foods from childhood are worth the calories, always. With Hurricane Sandy getting ready to pummel the East Coast and Halloween around the corner, these little treats hit the spot! The mixture of shapes and colors means everyone is happy – hubby still gets his chocolate.
Using jarred Fluff allows these cuties to be vegan and kosher, not to mention gluten free. Who knew that a childhood classic could be all three?! Since they only take 20 minutes to make, you can easily make these this week.
5 cups brown rice krispies or puffed brown rice
7.5 oz Fluff
1/4 cup soy margarine
dark chocolate chips
halloween shaped cookie cutters
Melt margarine and stir in fluff. Cook on low heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in puffed rice.
You can separate for different shapes or make just one type!
To make pumpkins, separate a small amount of mixture and add a couple drops of green. Stir until evenly mixed. Mix the rest with orange (or a 1 red to 6 yellow ratio). On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, press orange into the body of the pumpkin cutter and green into the stem. Remove and let harden. Repeat with remaining mixture.
To make black cats, bats or any other spooky black shape, press into cookie cutter on parchment lined cookie sheet. Let harden. Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips. Dip rice krispy treat in chocolate and let set.
