    Candy Corn Krispie Treats

      I am so excited…October is finally here!  I try to put off all things Halloween until October, but once it arrives, there are so many new things to try that I have to be busy.  I spied these little treats on Pinterest and knew this would be a nice and easy addition to my Halloween treat arsenal. Candy corn is one of those iconic treats that shouts Halloween, but it isn’t my favorite candy.  Don’t get me wrong…I always buy it and will use it to decorate with, but eating it is a different story.  It is way too sweet for my taste buds, but I love the tri-colored shape, so the possibility of using this as a replacement makes me happy!   Candy Corn Krispie Treats You will need to gather the following items before you start: 1 large box of Rice Krispies cereal (at least 9 3/4 cups); 2 -10 oz bags of mini marshmallows; 1 cube (1/2 cup) butter – if you cut up the cube of butter into the portions you will need, there will be an extra tablespoon to use on your hands to press the krispie mixture into the cake pan; spray vegetable oil; yellow and orange gel food coloring (like Americolor or Wilton); 2 large mixing bowls, at least one of them microwave-safe; a wisk, a bowl scraper and a large, sturdy spoon; 2 – 8″ cake pans. For the yellow ring:

    Cake Batter Krispie Treats

    I’ll have to say that I don’t usually try a recipe as soon as I find one, but I was baking things for the school play treat table and came across this recipe.  It sounded easy and yummy…and cute!  I found the recipe here. Cake Batter Krispie Treats 3 Tablespoons butter 1 – 10 oz. bag miniature marshmallows 1/3 cup white cake mix – not prepared, just the dry mix 1 – 1.5 oz. container of sprinkles (Jimmies) – these are mixed colors, but you could use what ever kind you like 6 cups Rice Krispies Put parchment paper inside a 9″ x 13″ pan; set aside.  Melt the butter in a 3 qt saucepan over medium heat; add marshmallows and stir, coating with the butter, until completely melted.  Add the cake mix, a spoonful at a time, mixing well.  Don’t overheat.  Pour over the Krispies, and stir in about half the Jimmies; mix well.  Press into the pan, sprinkling the rest of the Jimmies over the top.  I butter my hands a little and then it won’t stick on my hands as I press the treats into the pan.  I wanted the Krispie Treats to be tall, so I pressed it into just half the pan…you could use a smaller pan, if you like.  When I’m doing something for a bake sale, I like to make the presentation nice.  Taste is important, but
