This sweet, spooky, portable guy looks straight out of Vegan Lunch Box. He'd liven up any third grade Halloween party, but at my house, grown-ups pack this sort of thing for lunch.

I've finally found a use for all those holiday-themed cookie cutters I bought last summer, before I gave up gluten. I followed this recipe for classic Rice Krispies Treats, using vegan margarine, Dandies vegan marshmallows, and Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal (Kellogg's Rice Krispies are sweetened with barley malt).

Call me simple, but nothing brightens my day like a dessert with chocolate eyeballs.


  1. Oh my goodness, that is too cute! I would have loved to find that in my lunchbox as a kid, heck, I would love to find one of them in my lunch now! :)

  2. What a lovely treat! I know for sure that my son would LOVE this cute and crispy dessert. Thank you for the link, Mary! :D

  3. Amazing, I've been trying to work out what to do with both a bag of melted dandies & what to make for halloween - this is perfect!

  4. I MUST MUST MUST get cute cookie cutters before I fly back home.

  5. So adorable! I love rice krispie candy. Dandies are on my list.

    In Arlington, we stayed at the Battenkill Inn. Our room was lovely, but the Inn was not the most vegan friendly. Think: dead mounted moose head in the entry! I'm taking your suggestion next time!

  6. Mary- that SpikeMoleRat is me, Tami, from Vegan Appetite. Sorry! Apparently I'm on my husband's account.

  7. love the part @ chocolate eyeballs.
