Candy Corn Rice Krispies Treats

It is that time of year when you hit up the local pumpkin patch with your kids, bring home a bounty of pumpkins hand picked by each kid, and carve fun faces in each one. If you guys have the same system we did, Dad had to do all the hard work. Dad would cut the top off, we would scrape out all of the seeds and then we would use a sharpie marker to draw the face we wanted. Dad would get the task of cutting out the faces we had drawn so that we could stick a tea light in it and show it off to the neighborhood. All the grandparents would have to drive by and admire our work because we were SOO proud. With Halloween taking place tomorrow, I wanted to share a yummy Halloween inspired treat with you. The kids will love helping you create one of their favorite treats with a candy corn twist!

12 cups rice krispies cereal
12 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup margarine or butter
4 cups Candy Corn, rough chopped
extra butter for your hands

Prepare a baking sheet with a sil-pat mat or waxed paper. Melt butter in a medium or large pot. Add marshmallows and stir. When marshmallows are about 1/2 way melted, add in candy corn. The candy corn will start to melt a little which is perfect! Continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted. Add in the cereal and continue to stir until well combined. Immediately pour the mixture onto your lined baking sheet. Rub your (clean) hands with the extra margarine to prevent sticking and use your hands to press and spread the mixture around in the baking sheet until it is all level. Let cool and set up for 20 minutes. Cut into squares or use a candy corn cookie cutter to make the candy corn shape.

In the pan! Just stare at it in anticipation like a little judgement here.

You can try cutting them into Candy Corn shapes with a cookie cutter 

Or just cut them square

Enjoy! XOXO~
