This is a unique halloween theme cake "Death By Chocolate" Skeleton Surprise Cake. The outside looks really cool but inside there's a surprise... a giant Rice Krispie cake with mint chips in the center, all covered in a rich chocolate ganache.
This cake is truly easy to make and will impress any crowd. If you've ever made rice krispie bars it's that simple. The only prep work that takes time is the skeletons. You may chose the variety of poses and number of skeletons. The main skeletons I created were: Drowning, the Helper, Tantrum, Escape and the Eater. I randomly placed hands and body parts throughout the cake. I just happened to have purple statice flowers for some color.
Make this cake for any occasion, everyone loves surprises. Keep the skeletons and use again next year. Best part of this cake is it's gluten free!
I have moved all the directions and to my blog which you can find here. Petite Allergy Treats Sorry for the inconvenience!

Tips and side notes before you start:
You can make the cake ahead of time and pour the ganache another day to save time.
If you really don't have time to make them both, use a pre-made cake! Or just make a pan of plan rice krispie bars. The skeletons should work fine in regular frosting. The skeletons need time for the glue to set. Instead of waiting 2 hours, prepare them at night before you go to bed.
