Hal­loween treats

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - Front Page -

Whether it’s cake pops, caramel ap­ples, candy ap­ples or short­bread dec­o­rated with ghost faces, it’s all so much fun at Hal­loween.

Happy Hal­loween! Hal­loween is just as much fun for the adults as it is for the chil­dren these days.

My fam­ily and my­self en­joy dress­ing up for the oc­ca­sion. I also en­joy mak­ing treats for the chil­dren.

Whether it’s cake pops, caramel ap­ples, candy ap­ples or short­bread dec­o­rated with ghost faces its all so much fun.

This year I am once again mak­ing Hal­loween treats with Rice Krispies.

You can dec­o­rate with so many op­tions and have so much fun do­ing so.

Mon­ster Treats

3 tbsp but­ter 1 pack­age reg­u­lar marsh­mal­lows or 4 cups of marsh­mal­lows 6 cups Rice Krispies 1 cup cho­co­late chips Mini M&M’s, sprin­kles, Oreo crumbs

Method

In a large saucepan melt but­ter over low heat. Add marsh­mal­lows and stir un­til com­pletely melted. Re­move from heat. Add Rice Krispies. Stir un­til well coated. While the ce­real is still warm use a 1/2 cup mea­sur­ing cup coated with cook­ing spray to di­vide into por­tions. Us­ing clean hands coated with but­ter, shape into balls. Push half of a pret­zel rod or pop­si­cle stick into each ball. Cool. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt 1 cup of cho­co­late chips stir­ring con­stantly. Hold each ball by the stick and dip in cho­co­late. Dec­o­rate with sprin­kles, M&M’s, crushed Oreo cook­ies, crushed cho­co­late bars. You can try col­ored cho­co­late, but­ter­scotch chips… Any­thing that’s yummy.
