Creepy Crispy Critter Rice Treats

Creepy Crispy Critter Rice Treats

Halloween cat cookie cutter
1 cup Candy corn (red hots for older kids)
Child-safe scissors
Fruit tape, such as Fruit Roll-Ups
1 container Prepared chocolate frosting
3 Tbsp Butter
4 cups Mini-marshmallows
6 cups Crispy rice cereal

Measure all ingredients and have them set aside in separate dishes for quick preparing as the mixture becomes more difficult to work with as it cools.

Add butter to a saucepan heated over low heat. Stir until completely melted. Mix in marshmallows until melted. Stir continuously so that the marshmallows don't burn on the bottom. Remove from heat.

Add crispy rice cereal, stirring vigorously. When mixed, add candies. Mix well.

Generously spray 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray. Place the mixture in the baking dish. Press evenly onto the bottom of the dish. (Use a piece of wax paper to prevent the cereal mix from sticking to your hands). Allow to cool until firm.

Use a spatula to remove the entire treat from the dish. Cut with cat shaped cookie cutter. Ice with chocolate frosting. Use child-safe scissors to cut out not-so-scary features out of bright colored fruit roll-ups for your cats, such as eyes, pink ears, boots, a crown or a fancy collar.
