Halloween Rice Krispies Treats
- Total Time: 20 minutes
Turn ordinary rice krispy treats into festive pumpkin and ghost Halloween treats.
- 6 Tablespoons butter
- 6 cups marshmallows
- 6 cups rice krispy cereal
- orange food coloring (or red and yellow)
- chocolate chips
- green sanding sugar
- Melt butter and add in marshmallows on medium heat.
- Once the marshmallows are 90% melted, add in the food coloring.
- For a bold color, use about 20 drops.
- Once you have reached the color you want, stir in the rice krispy cereal.
- Make sure you seperate the marshmallow mixture before you add food coloring if you are going to do two different colors.
- Mold into desired shapes before its sets up.
- Cool on wax paper and then store in air-tight container.
To mold, I found it easiest to form them directly into the cookie cutter, as opposed to putting them in a pan and then cutting the desired shape. For the pumpkins, as soon as I molded them, I put them on wax paper and then sprinkled green sprinkles on the stem before they cooled.
