I love this time of year, crisp autumn air, the beautiful warm colors on the trees and, of course, Halloween! I love making fun Halloween themed treats for my little guy and his friends but as a busy mom I don’t always have the time to make something too elaborate. These Monster Crispy Cereal Treats are a perfect fun, simple treat for the season.
I started with the basic recipe found on the cereal box and added some fun to it. First, you will need:
3 tablespoons margarine (or butter) 10 ½ ounces JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows 6 cups KELLOGG'S® RICE KRISPIES® cereal 1 package of candy eyes ½ cup – 1 cup of candy corn
(Here’s a great time to get creative, you can add any add your favorite Halloween candy to give your monster treats some flare.)
First, melt butter in large saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows; cook until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring constantly. As mixture melts, add some green food coloring (or whatever color you want your monsters to be) and mix well. Remove from heat. Add cereal, mix well.
Press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Add eyes, candy corn or any other candies you are using. Allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.
