Spooky Season Rice Cereal Treats
Looking for a fun Halloween treat? Well, look no further than our Spooky Season Rice Cereal Treats recipe. With just a few simple ingredients these will sure be a hit – especially with the kiddos! To make them perfect, we used our Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt Peanut Butter Cup as a fun topping to create a spooky spider and friendly Frankenstein. This one is for all of you peanut butter cup lovers out there. Can’t wait to see what you create. Happy Haunting!
- 8 cups of marshmallows
- ½ cup of butter
- 7 cups of rice cereal
- 4 teaspoons of vanilla
- 4-5 drops of green plant-based food coloring
- Prepare an 8×8 pan or 9×13 pan with a piece of parchment paper. Butter the parchment paper to prevent the treats from sticking.
- In a large sauce pan or large dutch oven add butter over low heat. Once the butter has melted, add in the marshmallows, while stirring occasionally to prevent the marshmallows from burning or sticking to the pan. Once the marshmallows are fully melted, add in the vanilla and green dye and stir well. Remove from heat and add in the rice cereal and mix well. Using a well buttered spatula transfer the rice cereal to the prepared pan and press down. Let the rice cereal treats sit until hardened, about 2-3 hours or longer.
- Prepare the chocolate drizzle. Add the chocolate chips and coconut oil to a small saucepan and cook over low heat. Stirring constantly to prevent the chocolate from burning. If you choose to pipe the chocolate, set it aside to harden slightly before placing it in the plastic bag with a piping tip or you can cut the end of a ziplock and pipe that way.
- ⅓-½ cup of chocolate chips
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- Dark Chocolate Refrigerated Peanut Butter Cups
- ¼-⅓ cup of marshmallow fluff
- ¼ cup of crushed graham crackers
- Drizzle with chocolate and marshmallow fluff. Top with Perfect Bar Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup crumbles and graham cracker crumbles.
- If you want to get fancy, you can pipe a spider and Frankenstein using our Peanut Butter Cups as the body and mouth. See below.
- Cut into slices and enjoy.
