3 Tb butter
4 cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows + 12 to 16 additional marshmallows to create side screws on Frankie’s head
6 cups Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies® cereal
11-12 drops of green food coloring
1 package mini chocolate chips or Dolci melting chocolate
black licorice strands cut into 1” to 1/2” pieces
decorative sugar in green, gold and silver (found in the baking aisle at most major
grocery stores. I used Betty Crocker brand.)
candy eyes by Wilton
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add 4 cups marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Stir in 11-12 drops of the green food coloring until the color is “your” desired shade of green. Add Kellog’s Rice Crispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into large rectangles to form the head of Frankenstein. *To create a thicker Frankie head, use a smaller sized pan.
When the cooled and cut Rice Krispy rectangles are ready to decorate, melt the Dolci melting chocolate or pour 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds. Stir and put back into microwave for 15 to 30 seconds. Remove and stir again until melted.
Dip one side of Rice Krispy rectangle into the melted chocolate to add Frankie’s hairline. Add strands of black licorice to fill out the hairline and sprinkle with green decorative sugar. Set on wax paper so chocolate can harden.
To add the eyeballs, dip a wooden sandwich pick (it has a bigger flat end than a regular toothpick) into the melted chocolate. Gently place a drop on the back of the eyeball and then place (chocolate side down) onto “Frankie’s” face to create the eyes.
To create the side screws on Frankie’s head, melt chocolate in a small, microwave proof bowl. Combine the gold and silver decorative sugar in a small bowl. With a wooden sandwich pick, dip the miniature marshmallow into the melted chocolate and then directly into the gold and silver decorative sugar. Place on wax paper and let chocolate and sugar firm up. Once firm, place a drop of the melted chocolate on the flat side of the marshmallow and press to the side of Frankie’s head until set. Let dry completely on wax paper.
Arrange the Fabulous Frightful Frankies on a platter and watch them disappear like magic.
