Halloween version of Rice Crispy Treats
October 27, 2008 2:12pm CST
I found this recipe last year on the web and put it aside til Halloween rolled around. It's just like the old fashioned rice crispy treats but with a Halloween twist. I don't have a jelly roll pan, so I just used a regular old glass baking dish, and it worked just fine. They are real easy to make, although a bit sticky LOL. I thought this might be a nice recipe for anyone having a kids haloween party or something parents can make with their little ones. My 3 year old son helped me make these and had a ball. 1/2 c Butter 10 c Crispy rice cereal 9 c Miniature marshmallows 2 c Mixture of candy corn and Indian candy corn 3/4 c Miniature chocolate chips Candy pumpkins Orange food coloring (can be bought at cake decorating suppliers) Preparation : Melt butter and marshmallows; stir until smooth. In a large bowl, mix rice cereal, candy corn and miniature chips together. Add orange food coloring to marshmallow mixture, or squirt over cereal in bowl. Add marshmallow mixture to cereal mixture; stir quickly to combine. Spread on a large buttered jelly roll pan; press with buttered hands. While warm, press on candy pumpkins spaced 1 to 1/2-2 inches apart. Refrigerate and cut into squares.

I have made this before and it is really good. I try to make these every year for halloween and then change it to red and green m&m's for christmas. These are great plus fast and quite easy to make when rushed for time.
