This Halloween treat could not be any easier! Unwrap packets of Rice Krispies Treats/Squares (not sure why they call them squares when they’re rectangles!) and dip into melted Candy Melts. Add sprinkles for decoration and you, are, done!

Make a batch of them for an after-dinner treat during Halloween, or for a Halloween party dessert table. Or you could wrap in cellophane and tie with a ribbon and hand out as party favors or to Trick or Treaters.

How do you make Halloween Rice Krispies Pops?

You can save the Halloween Rice Krispies Pops recipe video to your YouTube Playlists for future reference. (Don’t forget to subscribe while you are there!)

These pops are made very simply by dunking ready-made Rice Krispies Treats/Squares into melted black Candy Melts and then decorated with melted orange Candy Melts. They are finished off with sprinkles!

And that really is it – SO easy! The hardest part is waiting for the melted candy to set so that you can eat the Rice Krispies treats! (And even that isn’t that long to wait!)

Melting Tips for Candy Melts

If you use the Wilton Candy Melting Pot, you can check out Wilton’s demo video on YouTube which is really helpful. They also give tips on how to melt candy melts in the microwave, as well as using the double boiler method.

The two most important things are

  1. Do not overheat – use an even melting temperature
  2. Do not add water – it makes the candy seize up and become unusable. Make sure the equipment used is completely dry, and avoid using utensils that retain moisture like a wooden spoon.

If you find that the candy is too thick, add vegetable shortening or (solid) coconut oil in 1 teaspoon increments, up to 1 tablespoon, and stir well.

Another reminder – do not add water. The very first time I used candy melts I managed to get water in the bowl and it was ruined. Learn from my mistakes! Additionally, do not use vegetable oil, butter, milk, or any other liquids as this will also make the candy seize up.

If you are using your microwave, test melt a small amount of candy melts first, to see how it works. You may need to adjust the temperature and time to suit your machine. Heat in 15-30 second increments, stirring the candy melts each time. They may not look melted, but they might have started melting from the inside. Stirring helps to distribute the heat.
