Adapted from Nourishing Meals

Rice Crispy Squares:

Instructions

For the Chocolate Eyes:

  1. Melt the cacao butter over low heat. Add to a blender with cashew butter, honey, vanilla, salt, and blend on high until smooth.

  2. Line a small tray with parchment paper. Using a piping bag (Don’t have one? Make one at home!), squeeze out the white chocolate into at least 12 small circles on to the parchment paper.

  3. Next, place a chocolate chip in the center of each white chocolate circle to complete the chocolate eyes.

  4. Place in the freezer to harden quickly.

For the Rice Crispy Squares:

  1. Remove the rice crispy squares from the packaging.

  2. Melt chocolate chips using a double broiler.

  3. While the chocolate chips are melting, line a tray with parchment paper for your rice crispy squares.

  4. Dip or spoon the chocolate on to the top half of each crispy square. Allow some of it to drip down a little bit for a spooky effect.

  5. Place back in the freezer to harden the chocolate quickly.

  6. Once the chocolate has hardened, stick two eyes to each crispy square by spreading a tiny bit of the leftover chocolate behind each eye to act as glue.

  7. Store at room temperature and enjoy!
