Jack-O’-Lantern Rice Krispie Treats

Jack O'Lantern Rice Krispie Treats - 5

Happy Halloween! For my last post for this year’s #GreatHallowTweet bloghop, I give you these jack-o’-lantern Rice Krispie treats. Since I went a little crazy earlier this week making my own candy corn, I decided that a quick and easy Halloween treat was in order for today. Since you likely have most, if not all, of these ingredients in your pantry already, these are the perfect last-minute treats to make today for your Halloween party. Be safe and enjoy the holiday!

Recipe adapted from here.

In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Dump in all of the marshmallows.

Stir in the rice cereal until well-coated. Spray an 8×11″ or 9×13″ baking dish and a rubber spatula with cooking spray. Using the spatula, press the cereal mixture into the pan. Let cool in the refrigerator 15-20 minutes.

Spray a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter with cooking spray, and then cut out shapes from the pan. Decorate using the black frosting.

  9. By the way, I just made your pumpkin cornbread. I was amazed to find that pumpkin actually worked so well with it. I took a bite, then another, and then had to stop myself before I ate too much. I’ll probably be posting about it later this week.
