Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • One 10-ounce bag marshmallows
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • Green food coloring
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • Candy eyeballs
  • Chef notes

    This is a fun and festive treat for your next Halloween party. It's so easy to make that the kids can easily get involved with this, too! Let them add the hair, mouth and eyes to customize each treat.

    Preparation

    1.

    Grease a 9- by 13-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray or line it with parchment paper.

    2.

    In a saucepan, combine butter and marshmallows and cook over low heat until marshmallows are just melted, stirring often. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in green food coloring. Add the cereal to the marshmallow mixture and stir until combined.

    3.

    Pour mixture into a prepared pan and press it in evenly. Let the treats cool before cutting into rectangles so they stay together. 

    4.

    Meanwhile, place chocolate chips and peppermint extract in microwave safe bowl. Heat in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until melted. If you don't like mint flavoring, you can leave the chocolate plain. 

    5.

    Pour melted chocolate into a quart-size plastic baggie. Snip one corner of bag and pipe chocolate hair and a mouth onto each treat.

    6.

    Put a drop of melted chocolate onto the back of each candy eye and place onto the treats.

    7.

    Let the chocolate harden before serving.
