How fun are these little guys?! And they’re so easy to make! Only 15 minutes and three or four ingredients.
A word to the wise, Count Chocula is sold seasonally. Grab a box or two as soon as it comes out because it sells out quickly.
You can also use Booberry or Frankenberry, also seasonal. But I like Count Chocula the best because…chocolate.
Leave the treats as is or add some Halloween sprinkles or other decorations. There are tons of cute ones out there.
Start by lightly spraying a 9×13 inch pan with cooking spray. Then line it with parchment. These pre-cut parchment sheets make it easy. They’re actually made for a sheet pan, but I discovered that they’re the perfect size if you want to line a 9×13 and have “handles” to lift it out. Give the parchment a quick spray.
The first spraying helps glue the parchment to the pan so it doesn’t slip around.
Next, melt the butter in a large pot over low heat. Then add the marshmallows.
Stir the butter and marshmallows together until everything is melted and smooth.
Turn off the heat and add the cereal. Gently stir it into the marshmallow mixture until it’s well coated.
Now you need to work quickly. As soon as the mixture comes off of the heat it starts to set up. Spread the mixture as evenly as possible into the prepared pan.
When it’s cool enough to touch, spray your hands with cooking spray and with your hands continue to work the mixture into an even layer in the pan.
While the marshmallow treats are still warm, sprinkle on your decorations. I’m using these sprinkles that I bought when I made my Frightfully Easy Halloween Cupcakes, but there are tons of fun sprinkles and decorations.
Now comes the hardest part…let the mixture cool completely before you cut them into individual treats.
Everyone loves these marshmallow treats, but kids especially love them because they’re easy enough that they can help.
