Scary peanut butter Rice Krispie treat balls dipped in white candy coating and drizzled with cookie icing “blood”. A dark candy forms the pupil. An easy and spook-tactular treat for your Halloween party buffet! If you are avoiding peanuts, make a half recipe for peanut-free Rice Krispie treats (just omit the green food coloring and shape into balls).


  • 1 (18-ounce) jar of peanut butter

  • 2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1-1/2 cup chopped white candy coating

  • 1 (9-ounce) bottle Wilton Cookie Icing, red (see alternatives, below *)

  • 36 dark brown M&Ms or other small, dark candies, for pupils


  • Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt candy coating and set aside. In a medium sized bowl, combine all other ingredients. Blend well until mixture forms a dough. Roll into 1-inch balls. Using a toothpick or fork, dip the balls into the candy coating until well coated (they don’t have to be perfectly coated, because they are zombies!). Place onto prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. When candy coating has hardened, heat cookie icing to a liquid, drizzling consistency and drizzle red icing all over cookies (if using Royal Icing, don’t heat. You will need to add more water to drizzle). Use a dollop of icing to attach the dark candy “pupil” to the eyeball.


  • *Alternatives to Wilton Cookie Icing: any store-bought cookie icing. Or:
    — A very small batch of Royal Icing tinted red (add a bit more water for drizzling consistency)
    — Pre-colored Royal Icing Mix (add a bit more water for drizzling consistency)
    Red candy melts (melted and drizzled)
    — Tint some of your white candy melts red with an oil-based food coloring (it must be oil-based for candy melts or your coating may seize and ruin the whole batch)
    Red sprinkles (added when white candy coating is still melted…in this case, also attach the pupil before the white coating hardens)
    Red Edible Ink Pen (or get a set of pens for other holidays)

    There are lots of ways to do this! Use what you’ve got on hand or what’s easiest for you!
