So if you can’t already tell I absolutely love Halloween! I think it is such a fun time of the year where you can have crazy colors and decorations all over your house and enjoy the fall weather! So I thought I would show you how we made these little crispy critter treats for the hubs!
Rice crispy treats are probably one of his favorite things to eat so I figured we would make a batch and decorate them for Halloween. This is another great activity to do with your little ones because it is so easy and has minimal ingredients. I did substitute the butter for vegetable oil and they turned out just fine you can’t tell at all! So what you will need…
- 6 cups of crispy rice cereal
- 1 bag of marshmallows, we used the mini
- 2-3 T vegetable oil
- festive cookie cutters & sprinkles
First we put the entire bag of mini mallows into a glass microwave safe bowl along with the oil and then followed the directions and heated them while occasionally stirring for 2-3 minutes. Next we just poured the melted mallows over the crispy cereal and tried to stir it quickly. Then I poured them onto a well sprayed baking sheet and pressed them down with a flat spatula. Sprinkles are next, obviously the most fun part of the entire project!
After they sat and had completely cooled I just took the cookie cutters and cut out the different critter! We had a bunch of the edges left over so we just snaked on those and are saving the cute ones for daddy! xo Meg
