Piping bag with small round end

1. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from fire. Add green food coloring

2. Add the puffed rice cereal. Stir until well coated.

3. Using buttered spatula or waxed paper, evenly press mixture into 9×13-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool.

4. Cut into rectangles approximately 2 x 3 inches.

5. In a bain-marie, melt the fondant dark chocolate candies.

6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

seven. Dip the top ¼ of the rectangle into the melted chocolate. Use a spatula to remove any excess from the back and to soften the front a bit to look like hair. Place on parchment paper. Sprinkle with brown candy sprinkles.

8. Using a toothpick, add a drop of warmed rock candy to the back of the candy eyes and place two on the Rice Krispies bar.

9. Once all the rectangles are dipped and the eyes attached, put the rest of the melted chocolate in a piping bag with a small round tip (you can also use a sandwich-sized zipper bag and make a small hole in the corner). Pipe a mouth and stitches on Frankenstein’s forehead.

ten. Cut the toothpicks in half. Add a mini marshmallow to the blunt end. Holding a toothpick, roll the marshmallow in silver dust, if using. Use the back of a spoon to poke the marshmallow into Frankenstein’s “neck”. Repeat with remaining marshmallows.

To note: Other options for bolts in Frankenstein’s neck are black licorice sprinkles or mini peanut butter cups.
