Honestly, there's not too many treats that are easier to prepare than Rice Krispie treats. So if you're a mom on the go, but still want to have a little fun with the kids for Halloween, these Spooky Krispie treats are your answer. They're also a great treat for the kids to help with, and a fun treat to send with the kids to school for their class Halloween parties.
What You'll Need:
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows or 4 cups miniature marshmallows
- 6 cups Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
- Festive Halloween cookie cutter shapes - we used a bat and a pumpkin but we've used a gingerbread man before and decorated him like a mummy which was also fun!
- Decorative (and edible) gel or frosting pens.
- Cake pop stick.
- In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth.
- Add KELLOGG'S RICE KRISPIES cereal. Stir until well coated.
- Using a buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Remove from pan.
- Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and remove from pan.
- Insert the cake pop sticks into the bottom in the centre.
- Decorate with frosting or gel.
- If your kids are gifting them to classmates this Halloween, wrap them in plastic and tie with a festive bow. You could even attach spooky little name tags to them if you want.
