Krispy Halloween Pizza
Here’s my favorite “Trick or Treat” goodie I send to far away spooks for the big day, Krispy Halloween Pizza!  Welcome to Halloweek, our throwback to happy posts from the past.  Each day we’ll share with you a new one, this one’s from October 20, 2010 and the only thing that’s really scary about it is the pictures!!!

Krispy Halloween Pizza

It’s a fun surprise that you can send to anyone in the mail. I’ve sent them to my college kids when they were away, missionaries, family, friends, and neighbors.

Who needs a special delivery on your list of loves? This one is going out to my nephew who is serving a mission in New York City!

You’ll need an extra-large, fresh, unused pizza box. Some years I’ve had to purchase them, other years, like this one, a local pizza joint gave me one.  Thanks Craigo’s!

Krispy Halloween Pizza |
I used an extra-large metal pizza pan I sprayed with non-stick spray.
Make a rice crispy crust by measuring 6 cups of crispy cereal in a large bowl. In a large saucepan combine 3 tablespoons of butter and 4 cups of mini-marshmallows. Stir until smooth and pour over the crispy rice.

Work quickly and gently mix together. Turn onto the pizza pan and with clean buttered hands, press the crust to evenly cover the pan. Let it cool and set up.

vanilla candy coating

Melt in your microwave about 1 pound of candy coating or vanilla chips. Be careful as it can scorch easily. I set my microwave for 30 second cycles stirring in between and as I’m getting close to creamy, I set it for 15 seconds to get it just right.

Use color paste to color it…mine looks lousy here. I loaned my paste to a cookie maker and had to use liquid (in little squeeze bottles) and was not happy with my blah peachy results.With a rubber spatula, spread the colored, warm coating, over the crust.

Now add your goodies. I’ve used everything through the years. Gummi candies are great, worms especially, and mini candy bars are cute. I just used what I had, gumballs, M&M’s, candy corn and pumpkins, wrapped kisses, Oreo cookies, and chocolate-covered sunflower seeds!

I had some orange and yellow gimmes, so I put some of my candy melt in a squeeze bottle and squeezed it on my cookies and then sprinkled the gimmes on top.

Line your pizza box with parchment sheets.

With a large spatula carefully loosen your crispy pizza all around the edges and then gently slide it onto your parchment lined pizza box.

Make sure it’s all set and the candy coating is hard again. It helps if you have a cool place to set it for about 15 minutes. I wish you all had a cool Idaho garage right now…my walk in fridge!

After it hardens up, cover it with more parchment sheets. I used 4 total.

If you are going to hand deliver your pizza tuck a little trick-or-treat note in and close the box. If you are sending it from the post office, add a note, then a layer of bubble wrap over the parchment. Now tape it securely with clear packing tape.

Add an address, right on the box and make a trip to the post office, and everyone will have an extra Happy Halloween! 
Do you send anything to distant trick-or-treaters for Halloween?  Hopefully you have enough time to get a Krispy Halloween Pizza ready and sent to someone you love.  Come back tomorrow for more, Halloweek fun treats and scary pictures!!!

    You are the best Mom, Friend, Aunt or Pal anyone could ask for! This looks delicious. What a special Halloween treat!

  2. Lisa

    wow, I’d definitely want a few slices of that pizza! YUM!

  3. Sushi-Mama

    Just happened onto your blog today. I am a pro. blog hopper/lurker, and I have to say, I love your blog! The pics and recipes are awesome. Thank you for sharing your talents! I will be visiting and using your recipes often. Keep them coming. . .

  4. Kristen

    After seeing the Halloween cake and now this pizza, I know whose house is the favorite one to visit in October!! What a treat.

    Gnee — I used to make a cookie pizza like this, but you have given me a vision to make a Halloween one — worms, bugs, etc. Yummy! Speaking of where you live, what was the name of the amazing pizza place that used to serve “Pizza Bombs” in the 80’s? We used to DIE for them! Joni

  6. Suesan

    What an awesome idea. I’d love to make this for my nephew who’s serving his mission in Texas!

  7. Judy

    I’m practically salivating over my keyboard that looks so good! Oh my goodness! Yum!

  8. Judy @ In His Grip

    This is great! I am going to send this to my daughter at college. She has been complaining that I have been slow on the care packages this year. Boy will she and all of her sorority sisters be excited. Thanks for the post.

  9. Debbie

    I just HAVE to make one of these to send to the girls. My husband could deliver it for us. This is just such a wonderful idea!!

    I’m passing it along to all of my friends with kids in school.

    Hmmm… Since you sent it to NY, I could easily mail on to my nephew in CO. Wouldn’t that be such a great surprise?


    FANGtastic pizza idea!!

    My Halloween Mantel photos are now published if you’d dare to drop over when time allows.

  11. Dawn

    oh yum! we’ve made cookie pizza before and didn’t even think of a Halloween one-great idea!

  12. Brian and Kendra

    What a creative idea! I am definately going to make this. My husband and I are manager at a pizza restaurant so I think I can manage getting a pizza box for free! 🙂
    Thanks for the idea!

  13. Caryn

    Oh my goodness gracious, this Halloween pizza looks so great! What a darling idea. I love the mini oreo cookies with the drizzles on top. I love to use those vanilla melties from Guittard, because they drizzle in such a fine line. In fact, I just ordered 25 pounds and got a great deal on them. Let me know if you want some. Anyway, I use them on my caramel pretzel logs (you will get one in class, because I make them for my VM classes), but I have never thought of using a squirt bottle to dispense the chocolate! This would make it easier to get little fine lines. Brilliant! Where did you get the plastic squeeze bottle? Thanks!

  21. Judy @ In His Grip

    Okay, I know, I know I have already sent you a comment. But I just have to tell you that I sent this to my daughter and it was a huge hit at Pi Phi house at K-State. I think I have the favorite Mom award right now:0) Thanks for the recipe.

  22. Tamara Jansen

    What a fantastic idea! No better way to make a dear one feel like they are special 🙂
