Count Chocula Treats October 28, 2010

I haven’t made a holiday specific treat in a long time.  While perusing this twist on a Rice Krispie Treat on Sing For Your Supper’s site, I decided this was something Skylar and I should do together.  We’ve never made Rice Krispie Treats!  (I know, bad mom award!) I modified this recipe very slightly.  When I showed it to Skylar, she had one demand:  Chocolate Only!  And thus, Count Chocula Treats were born!

.

.

To make, gather these ingredients:

.

.

Melt 3 tablespoons of butter/margarine on low heat.  Have a small child add 4 cups of mini marshmallows (Very Carefully!!)

.

.

and continue to stir until it’s all smooth and melty.

.

.

Remove from heat.  Have a small child add 6 cups of cereal.

.

.

Remind her that it gets harder to stir when she does this one small handful at a time.

.

Get ignored

.

.

Laugh at how spider-webby it looks when you stir it all up to evenly coat the cereal (and excuse poor picture quality)

.

.

Gently press the mixture into a 13×9 baking dish (sprayed with cooking spray)

.

Optional: cover with Halloween sprinkles (ours were pumpkin shaped)

.

.

Allow time to cool, and cut into squares

.

.

Find missing square in your daughter’s mouth.

.

.

Enjoy the sugar buzz!
