Candy Corn Krispies


Candy Corn Krispies

6 tablespoons margarine, divided
6 full cups mini marshmallows, divided
7 1/2 cups crispy rice cereal, divided
food coloring
butter or shortening
5 oz. white chocolate for dipping, optional

Measure 2 1/2 cups crispy cereal and place in a large bowl; set aside.  Grease one large and one small piece of waxed paper.  Line a large bread pan with the large piece, greased side up; set aside. 

In a small sauce pan combine 2 tablespoons margarine and 2 full cups of mini marshmallows just until melted.  Stir in cereal from the large bowl until combined.  Press into the bottom of the bread pan; set aside.  Wash the small sauce pan. 

Measure 2 1/2 cups cereal and place in a large bowl; set aside.  In the small saucepan combine 2 tablespoons margarine, 2 drops red food coloring and 3 drops yellow, and 2 full cups of mini marshmallows just until melted.  Stir in cereal from the large bowl until combined.  Press into the bread pan on top of the white layer; set aside. Wash the small sauce pan. 

In the small saucepan combine 2 tablespoons margarine, 5 drops yellow food coloring and 2 full cups of mini marshmallows just until melted. Stir in the remaining cereal until combined.  Press into the bread pan on top of the orange layer.  The mixture will not all fit in the bread pan. 

Place the small piece of wax paper on top of the krispie treat, greased side down. Flip the entire treat upside down to help form the top layer and place back into the pan to allow it to set for 1-2 hours or overnight.

Un-wrap the krispie treat.  On a cutting board slice the treat into three sections as shown in the picture.

Take each of the three segments and slice into triangles.  Dip the white portion of the treat into white chocolate or use a spoon to spread the white chocolate on.  Enjoy!

These are so cute! How many candy corns did it make? I am definitely going to have to try these...we LOVE Rice Krispie treats. Love your blog, you are so creative I miss living close to you!

Good question Evans family. I think it made ~20 candy corns. This would all depend on how big you cut each traingle in each row. The end pieces were not always perfectly shaped. However, it did not stop anyone from eating them!

Love this! I'm trying this right now, but instead of making part of the treat white, I'm layering yellow/orange/yellow so that all the bases are yellow and I'm dipping the tips in the white chocolate. Found you through pinterest!

Just made some of these tonight with my 7 yr old for her Halloween party in school tomorrow. Currently, the two batches are cooling in the fridge so I can cut them. We made one regular batch with the white, yellow, & orange and one batch with white, orange, & brown (cocoa krispies).
