Candy Corn Krispies Treats
Halloween is such a fun holiday to celebrate. Being silly and using your imagination is what it is all about! The same goes for the food. If you are having a Halloween party or going to one, Halloween treats are the thing.
Always looking for a new way to make the party fun, these Candy Corn Krispies Treats are both easy and delicious. They are just like your typical Krispies Treats, but they add some flare with the finished design.
A great vegetarian dessert, these are the perfect Halloween snacks to bring with to a party or prepare a day or two ahead of time for your own. With only six ingredients, this is a fun one that the kids can make as well!
While this process takes around an hour and a half, most of the time is spent waiting for things to set. Your actual work-time on these is minimal, so don’t worry too much! Make sure that you have access to a nice work area, a microwave, and fridge and you should be good to go.
Candy Corn Krispies Treats Recipe
4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
10 oz bag marshmallows
3 Tbsp butter, softened
1 bag orange candy melts
1 bag yellow candy melts
Orange sugar sprinkles
Pull out a 9×9 baking dish and grease it with butter. I find it easiest to use a glass or ceramic pan for Rice Krispies treats because of the rounded bottom, but you should be fine to use anything that you have.
In a large microwave safe bowl, heat your marshmallows and butter for 1-2 minutes until the marshmallows start to grow. Remove your bowl from the microwave and stir them together.
Mix your cereal into the bowl with your melted marshmallows and stir well to incorporate.
Press your Rice Krispies mixture evenly into bottom of your greased pan and set it in the fridge for a few hours to harden.
Cut your pan of Rice Krispies into triangles (cut down the center, then cut each section in a zigzag pattern). You can make a bunch of smaller triangles or eight larger triangles.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt one cup of yellow candy melts. Place the bowl in the microwave for 3-4 minutes on 50 percent power, stirring every 30 seconds until they are melted.
While holding the top point of each triangle in your hand, dip 3/4 of your Rice Krispies triangles into your melted yellow chocolate. After dipping, set each triangle on a piece of parchment paper to harden.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt one cup of orange candy melts. Place the bowl in the microwave for 3-4 minutes on 50 percent power, stirring every 30 seconds until they are melted.
Making sure that the yellow has hardened, hold the point of each triangle again and dip the bottom 1/4 into the melted orange chocolate. You will be covering some of the yellow with the orange.
Top the orange candy (while still wet) with orange sprinkles.
Set the triangles in the fridge for about 15 minutes and enjoy!
