Make marshmallow Rice Krispies treats. Kids can decorate using green, black, white, and purple icing and gumdrops and fruit roll ups cut into zigzag strips for the mouth.This recipe is adapted from the Green Halloween Monster Treat on the Rice Krispie’s cereal website.
You will need:
9X13 pan sprayed with cooking spray
3 tablespoons butter
1 package regular marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
purple or green food coloring
green, white, black, and purple icing
Assorted candies (gumdrops, cheerios, fruit roll ups)
In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter and marshmallows.on high for 1-3 minutes, stirring after each minute.Stir until smooth. Add purple or green food coloring until desired color is reached. Do this by adding only 1 drop at a time-you can always add more.
Add Rice Krispies cereal and stir until well coated.
Using a buttered spatula spread mixture into prepared pan.
Cool. Cut into 8 rectangles. I was able to cut lengthwise into three strips. Then cutting width-wise into five sections making a total of 15 rectangles. Remove from pan.
Decorate with green or purple icing. Attach candies for bolts nose, and eyes and hair.
