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.
- 3 Tbsp butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- Orange food coloring
- 6 cups Rice Krispies or other similar rice cereal
- Black frosting, for decorating
In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over low-medium heat. Dump in all of the marshmallows.
Continue stirring until all the marshmallows are melted. Add in the orange food coloring.
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.
