How cute terrifying are these?

Many of you may be familiar with the talented Cara of Fork and Beans–the creator of classic kid-friendly recipes that happen to also be gluten, egg and dairy free. Well, she has a new Halloween ebook out and I’m delighted to share a recipe from it today. Since it’s officially the start of October, I can now start bombarding you all with Halloween and (gasp!) pumpkin inspired goodness. Oh yes, prepare yourselves… it’s about to get scary Fall-like up in here.

Please enjoy these frightfully delicious treats, courtesy of Cara. Muwahahahahaha…..

Monster Rice Cereal Treats


  • 4 cups Dandies vegan marshallows
  • 6 cups gluten-free rice cereal
  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter
  • Natural green food coloring
  • Edible candy eyes
  • Guaze
  • Skull Cookie Cutter



In large saucepan melt the vegan butter over low heat.

Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.

Add a few green food coloring drops into the mixture and stir until evenly colored.

Add cereal and stir until well combined.

Using wax paper, evenly press mixture into a greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Allow to cool. Cut out skull shapes with the cookie cutter.

Wrap each head with gauze and place the edible eyes on by either pressing firmly in the treats or “glue” with royal icing.
