Candy Corn Inspired Halloween Treats

Nothing says Halloween to me like candy corn.  While I can really only eat a few pieces of it, I used it as my inspiration in making these rice krispie, candy corn inspired, Halloween treats.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 (10 oz) bag marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • red and yellow food coloring

Directions:

Select a 10″ round container/pan (I used my 10″ cast iron skillet), and line it with wax paper.

For the first layer, in a microwave safe bowl large enough to hold both the melted marshmallows and rice krispies, pour in 1 cup of marshmallows, and top with a 1/2 tbsp of butter.

Place into the microwave and heat in 30 second intervals, stirring in between each, until the marshmallows have melted.

Stir in a cup of rice krispies until coated, place it in the center of your 10″ round, and form a circle (wet your hands with water to keep the mixture from sticking to your hands as you form the circle).

Place it in fridge until you’re ready for the next layer.

For the next layer add in 2 cups of marshmallows into your microwave safe bowl and top with 1 1/2 tbsp of butter.  Once melted, stir in a few drops of red food coloring, followed by several more drops of yellow food coloring to create your favorite shade of orange (I used 4 red drops and 12 yellow drops to create my shade of orange).
