So Sean and I had a little Halloween party over the weekend, and since I've somehow managed to not post any Halloween-related recipes, I thought I'd share one with you that I served at the party. It's your basic Rice Krispie treat, but jazzed up for Halloween. I hope you enjoy them!
This recipe was originally found at Pass the Plate.
3 tbs butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
6 cups puffed rice cereal
12 oz. bag of candy corn
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Stir in the peanut butter until it has melted, too. This is kind of a sticky mess... so be prepared! Remove from the heat and stir in the cereal and candy corn until everything is well coated. Use a buttered spatula or piece of wax paper to evenly press the mixture into a well-greased 13x9x2-inch pan. Let them firm up, cut into desired shapes/sizes, and enjoy!
If your store happens to be out of regular candy corn (coughWalmartcough...) go right ahead and use some of the other varieties. I used some (somewhat racially insensitive...) Indian Corn, because I was a little wary of the caramel-flavored candy corn. By the way, when did they even come out with the flavored candy corns? I completely missed out on that one.
