Easy HALLOWEEN food IDEA - Red Velvet Rice Crispy Treats RECIPE - party-kids- RAW MEAT?

I'm making my FAVORITE rice crispy recipe and tweaking it a bit for Halloween. I love themed food! We are not a "cutesy" Halloween family but more "gory and gross" Halloween family so these are PERFECT!

I made these tonight for a Halloween themed game night as a trial run for our big Halloween bash! They are AH-MAZING!!!! Huge vote "YES" from the family with some excited dancing and uuummmm's while eating them. The true test will be at the game night but I'm pretty confident these are a keeper. 

What is it? RAW MEAT, of course! 

Looks like it doesn't it? Crazy gross thinking of eating this but if they are brave it's a sweet surprise!

Recipe: (Sorry I don't have the cute printable feature but it's not that hard to remember)

8C - Rice Krispies Cereal
3C - Mini marshmallows
1 Jar - 7oz Marshmallow Creme
1/2C - Red Velvet Box Cake (NOT the whole box)
1 - Stick of Butter
 4-6 Drops of red food color (optional)

Low low heat (I use our MELT setting) add the butter until completely melted. 

Add mini marshmallows and jar marshmallow cream and mix well with butter. 


Mix often so it doesn't burn in the center. This will take a while but it will become completely smooth. 

Add red velvet cake mix and mix well. It will look brown and get a little hard to stir. 

It looked a little too brown but maybe it's old meat. I opted to make it a little more fresh.

OPTIONAL- Red Food Color

Add rice crispy cereal. It will look like it's way too much and no way enough marshmallow mix to cover it but it will. PLENTY! I promise.

Oh and mixing is kinda a super stick nightmare. You'll understand when you make it. Impossible to get all of it off. I used a spatula at first but then just used one hand. WHY? You need the other had to get it all off the coated hand. Seriously, use only one hand. It's crazy sticky.

Then transfer to a plate or ideally a rectangle white foam tray to really look like grocery store meat. I used parchment paper to press it firmly (it won't stick to the that paper) and kinda odd shaped it. I press firm since I want it to cut nicely to serve. I thought about putting it in mini brain molds but we already have too many brain theme food right now. 

Hope you enjoy! If I forgot anything just ask!

Thanks for stopping by!
