Hallowe’en treats for your little goblins (GIVEAWAY!) *closed*

I’m a Kellogger, which means I’m involved in the Kellogg’s blogger outreach program. I’m basically an ambassador for the brand, spreading the news about new products and fun activities, in return for free stuff. And I have to tell you, it’s a pretty awesome perk. We’re big fans of Kellogg’s products in our house and I made the choice to apply for this role when I met their social media folks at a conference. And as you all (should) know, I never talk about anything I don’t genuinely love, so it is a natural fit for me. I’m always happy to talk about the things we love around here!

With Hallowe’en coming up, the kids were excited to make some fun treats, and as a Kellogger family we received the most awesome little package! It included a box of Rice Krispies and all the things we needed to make some super spooky treats. Take a look at their recipe section over on their site — there are some really cute ideas! And the awesome part about Rice Krispie treats is that they’re fast, easy and the kids can really get involved in the whole process. We do a lot of fun cooking and baking here, but this is by far the easiest (and one of the most popular) activities.

So this is what we did yesterday when Story got home from school.

Excited about their package of goodies!

Whenever a package arrives at our house, the kids ask if it’s for them. They’re always so excited when it’s actually a Kellogger package because it means fun stuff is happening.

So simple, the kids can make them with only a little supervision/help.
After making & chilling the Rice Krispie mix, we cut shapes out using cookie cutters and the kids got to decorating with gel icing and various candies. Some candies MAY have been consumed.
Pumpkins and mummies and bats, oh my! Oh, and a snake. And a cat.
Rolling some of the mixture into balls makes the purr-fect shape for kitties or goblin heads. The treats would be super cute on sucker sticks, wouldn't they?
Everyone loves their mummy.

The kids decided this is their favourite treat to make, and I’m down with that. Although for some reason, my husband’s Rice Krispie squares always turn out way better than mine, so next time I’ll have him help them. πŸ˜‰

If you make any Hallowe’en treats, let me know! I’m always looking for cute ideas.

  1. They look yummy! Rice krispies have always been my favourite :). This year we have a robot and a cupcake heading out for hallowe’en treats!

    1. My Dad has always called them “Chinese chews”… I wonder if that’s a bad saying now. Hm.

      We had a little robot one year! Never a cupcake though. I bet that’ll be cute.

  2. My 3 year old son is going as COOKIE MONSTER! I am going as ELMO so we look awesome together trick-or-treating!

  3. Love the mummy!

    My girls are going as characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. DD7 as Violet Bauregarde, DD5 as Veruca Salt.

    1. My first reaction was, “Wow, he watches M.A.S.H.?” and then it dawned on me that I think Hawkeye is also a superhero-ish guy… right?

  4. Well, we haven’t figured out what all 5 kids want to be yet but they have some ideas! I’m being a black cat, my oldest wants to go as Chrisiano Ranaldo (how we are going to pull that off I have no idea!) and my 3 yr old wants to be Thomas although, last year he was Percy and Thomas is looking pretty slim as it seems to be sold out everywhere! So possibly he will go as someone from CARS. My girls are very picky and we won’t know until we go buy them! Which, has to be soon! Oy!

  5. Mmm treats πŸ˜‰

    My almost 3 year old is going as the man with the yellow hat and my 5 month old will be Curious George πŸ˜‰

  6. That looks like so much fun! My daughter ha asked to be Wendy Darling this year, so naturally her little brother will be dressing up as Peter Pan.

  7. So fun! I have to really work up the nerve to bake with C but these look like something I could manage.

    He’s going as Ironman for Halloween. (I’m not sure he knows who Ironman is, but he liked the costume…)

    1. Mason LOVED Ironman long before he had any idea who he really was. And Spiderman, too. And he asks to watch Power Rangers whenever he sees the picture on Netflix (though we never have watched it). It’s like they’re naturally drawn to the characters. Isn’t that weird?

  8. Those treats look awesome! I think we will make some this weekend – rice krispie squares are a favourite here! This year we have a vampire and a witch going trick or treating!

    1. So fun! Rice Krispie treats are so fun and easy. Sometimes we top the regular ones with sprinkles just to dress ’em up.

  9. Love the Mummy treats of course!!!
    For Halloween my boys are going as Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat as well… guess it’s not as original as I thought looking at your other commentors response (LOL)

    1. I think it is an ADORABLE idea! I wish my kids would let ME choose their costumes. I could think of a ton of really cute themes. :p

  10. We’re big Kelloggs users here too. I was thinking of doing Rick Krispie treats for the neighbourhood kids that we know well this year. My kids get twitchy if I ever run out of Rice Krispies. This year, the 7-year-old is a Ghostbuster. He and his dad are working on the costume today, and the 10-year-old is a Ranger (like a knight) which is a character in the books he reads. Everybody will think he’s Robin Hood or something, but he doesn’t care!

  11. Let’s see… We have 1 Darth Vader, 1 white ninja, 1 tbd and 1 lion.
    The TBD is my 2 year old who is going to pick a costume from the box of costumes we have. Every year we go costume shopping after Halloween and add the costumes to the box for dress up and next years Halloween.

    1. That’s what we do, too! This year was the first time either kid has requested anything specific. (well, Mason was too little to have asked before anyhow) Usually Story has just chosen from our dress-up trunk. (Such a smart idea!!)

      1. My eldest two really wanted Phinneas and Ferb but we weren’t able to find any costumes so they picked what they wanted and luckily for me they were from the box.

  12. Rice Krispie treats don’t last very long around these parts, mostly because I eat them all! πŸ˜€
    The costume this year is a Power Ranger. I know, I had to check what year it was too. It’s not the 90’s… πŸ˜‰

    1. You know, those things are timeless! I don’t even know what they are or what they do, but I see their costumes all over!

  13. Our “children” are Rescue animals: the cats (Gang of Seven) are dressing up as dogs, while SadieDoggie is donning cat-ears & whiskers to be a Kitty. All will, no doubt, attempt to eat the treats themselves while ostensibly distributing them to little trick-or-treaters.

  14. Rice Krispea treats look right up my alley for an easy Halloween baking craft. Claire is following in her Mama’s footsteps and dressing as Little Red Riding Hood. She wants me to wear my matching costume!

  15. My little one is going out as Cinderella. We’ll see how far she can make it before she gets tired and turns back into a pumpkin.

    1. I can tell you from firsthand experience that it’s VERY hard to remove! I went as Smurfette in the 80s when they were first popular. πŸ™‚
