Easy Halloween Treats
I have the perfect spooky treat for you and your kids this Halloween!
Who doesn’t like a good ole Rice Krispy Treat? No one that’s who, because they’re delicious of course! When my girls asked me for a fun Halloween treat I cringed, I don't have a lot of time this year to spend in the kitchen whipping up a ghostly cheesecake-like last year, so instead, I made a batch of ooey-gooey Rice Krispy goodness.
I like to add a hint of vanilla to mine just to give it a little somethin somthin, along with a dash of food coloring in order to give them the perfect inky vibe. For this fun little recipe, I also grabbed a few toy spiders that my children had brought home from school and precariously danged around the house, in the hopes of creeping one another out. Then I sprayed them with edible gold glitter because you know why not, it’s better than finding them in your bathroom 6 months later resulting in almost giving yourself a heart attack.
The best part is, you can basically make them in 8 minutes flat, it doesn't get much better than that let me tell you! They’re the perfect ghoulish treat my tiny little gremlins.
Ghoulish Rice Krispy Treats Recipe
3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon black food coloring
1 can of gold edible spray
1 package (10 oz., about 40) Jet-Puffed Marshmallows
4 cups Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows
6 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal
1. In large pot melt butter over low heat. Add food coloring and vanilla, then add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Be careful not to overheat your marshmallows, that’s how you get hard treats
2. Add Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using a buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares or use cookie cutters to create fun shapes!
Best if served the same day, though they probably won't last an hour.
