Named Best Kids Book of 2018 by Red Tricycle!
When the fall leaves crinkle under my feet, my memories
float back to Homecoming, late nights at the video store, and my high-school partner in crime.
Our childhood adventures never ceased, and being sixteen wasn’t going to stop us from taking in a haul of Halloween sweets. We’d sprint up and down her neighborhood streets, flying by kids so we could beat them to the goods. We’d awkwardly bang on doors, dressed as Barbie and Ken, surrounded by groups of anxious ten year olds with hands outstretched. We weren’t chaperones, but that didn’t stop us from pretending!
So when my bestie and her kids whipped up a batch of these Spooooky Halloween treats, I settled down in my kitchen and followed suit!
Easy Bake Option:
In a microwave-safe bowl, heat 1/2 a stick of butter and 15 large marshmallows on high for 2 minutes. Stir. If ingredients are not mixing well, heat for another minute until smooth. While stirring, add 3 cups of Rice Krispies® and press into a round cake pan.

What You Need:
1/4 CUP Butter
2 cups Marshmallows large or small
3 cups Rice Krispies® cereal
1 Package Marshmallow Peeps®
1 Bottle Food Coloring
Step By Step:
In large pot or saucepan, melt 1/4 cup of butter over low heat. Add in 2 cups of marshmallows, and stir until everything is completely melted. Then remove from heat.
Using a rubber spatula (you can smear it with butter to prevent sticking) to stir, add 2 drops of food coloring (if desired) and 3 cups of Rice Krispies® cereal. Stirring until well coated.
Press the treats into a greased 9-inch round cake pan and top with sprinkles. Let cool.
Double recipe to make two pizzas. To acheive the Halloween effect grab some Ghost Peeps® from the store, and add 5 drops of black dye to the marshmallow mixture.
Grab a tub of store-bought white frosting and add green food color, or make a batch of green buttercream frosting (Recipe can be found on page 11.)
Using a piping bag or a frosting tool of your choice, place a green border around the entire cake pan. We like to use the frosting tip that has all the little holes in it so it looks like grass.
Tear open a sheet full of marshmallow Peeps® and add a thick line of frosting to the back. Place them in your desired position (the frosting back will keep them from falling off) then use candy chocolate eggs or jelly beans to decorate.
