Crispy Coffins: Halloween Recipe

These yummy chewy treats use the now-classic marshmallow and rice krispies combo that’s easy to shape and cut into fun shapes. Courtesy of

Serves 8-10


  • 160g rice crispies/puffed rice cereal

  • 40g butter

  • 300g marshmallows

  • Icing tubes to decorate


  1. You will need a tray about 20cm square for setting, lined with baking parchment.

  2. In a saucepan slowly melt the butter and marshmallows together, stirring on a low heat until they are combined.

  3. Pour the cereal into the syrupy goo and stir to combine.

  4. Plop this into the prepared tray and press down using a metal or silicone spoon or palette knife.

  5. Leave to set for an hour until fully set.

  6. Turn the square out onto a cutting surface and cut down the middle, in half.

  7. Cut coffin shapes by cutting at a slight angle and then making an almost V shape, the opposite sides will automatically become the other coffin shapes.

  8. Cut off the top corners of each coffin and you will have your perfect shape.

  9. Decorate with drawn on shapes using icing tubes to make creepy spiders webs and spooky faces.
