Rice Cereal Frankensteins
One of the original spooks, the Frankenstein monster has been making people run away in fear for generations. Have a little fun with is famously shaped head and turn it into a sweet Halloween treat.
This is another simple recipe. Make your standard rice cereal treats but add in a few drops of green food coloring before you pour the mix into a pan.

Who doesn’t love s’mores, right? Well, kick your s’mores up a notch on the scary charts by adding a few creepy things to America’s favorite camping treat.
To get started, you don’t have to change anything in the basic s’more ingredients. All you have to do is create your s’mores and then add an assortment of items. Try gummy worms or red cookie icing for blood.
Donut Hole Eyeballs
