Freeze-dried fruit does it again! I just never get tired of it. I love how freeze-dried fruit naturally flavors frosting’s and chocolate, as evidenced in this recipe. I also love how well freeze-dried fruits work in baking, as evidenced in this recipe. And heck, they are just so darn quick and easy to throw into smoothies as well. Freeze-dried fruits are one of the most versatile things I have in my pantry. I use them. All. The. Time. And obviously not just to eat straight out of the can, which I do as well.


Now that I have professed my undying love for freeze-dried fruit, let’s move on to this fun idea, shall we? I wanted a quick and easy Halloween treat to make with the boys this year, and out of all of the ideas we looked at, this was their favorite. Adorable little Krispie monsters. I just knew that using freeze-dried fruit would be the perfect solution to not adding food coloring. I also like the hint of fruit flavor it adds. And if you have extra fruit-flavored Almond Bark, just make some Halloween bark! If you have followed me at all the past few months, you know I love a good visual. The link below will show you step-by-step how to make these monsters.
