Halloween baking ideas: Chocolate Rice Krispie rocky road squares

Kevin Dundon

We always look forward to Halloween in the Dundon household- the schools are on mid-term break and it's a great chance for all the family to catch up with each other and get busy in the kitchen!

This year, celebrating will be a bit different. There'll be no trick or treating or party games, such as bobbing apples, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the occasion - we just need to be more careful.

In our house, we will have a movie night with our delicious decorated cookies and brownies, and we will create a Halloween scavenger hunt in the house and garden, using torches to seek out the hidden treasures. We will also be carving pumpkins - imaginations can run wild with decorations. To make sure you've a good selection of sweets and biscuits to choose from, here is a ghoulish goodie for you to whip up in the kitchen for your little monsters.


Serves 4

  1. 50g butter, softened. 150g milk chocolate, broken into chunks 3 tbsp honey 50g rice Krispies
  2. 50g white chocolate drops
  3. 30g marshmallows
  4. 100g dark chocolate
  5. 1 pack Oreos
  6. 2 hand full of your favourite sweets (including large marshmallow…)


  1. Line a 6inch round cake tin with a triple layer of cling film or baking parchment
  2. Over a pan of simmering water, melt in a bowl the butter, chocolate and honey.
  3. Remove from the heat and add the rice krispies, marshmallow, white chocolate drops and stir to coat into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Transfer in the tin and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to set.
  5. Once cooled and set, remove from the cling film. Place on a serving platter.
  6. In a bowl over simmering water, melt the dark chocolate.
