Halloween Rice Krispie Treats

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.  

You'll need:

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.

Enjoy these!


  1. These look so good. I'd definitely enjoy candy corn more stuffed into peanut butter rice crispy treats!

  2. These were very yummy! I could have easily eaten the whole lot.
