Halloween Candy Treats
Happy Halloween Hello Kirsti Readers!!!!
I’ve got a special Halloween treat and recipe for you today.
As you know, I’m a teacher, and from time to time I like to surprise my co-workers with a sweet little treat to help them get through the week.
The recipe I used is a Christmas candy recipe. There are a million different ways to doctor this recipe. I’ve added sprinkles to make it more festive for different holidays and it’s all about the packaging (isn’t it!?!?!).
I’ve got to warn you---this candy is addictive, hence why I call it Candy Crack. I cannot confirm nor deny that I’ve eaten an entire batch on my own! (You won’t tell, will you?)
Candy Crack Recipe
2 bags of White Chocolate Melts (or 2 bags of white chocolate chips)
1 cup of peanut butter
4 cups of Rice Krispies
2 cups of marshmallows
2 cups roasted peanuts
Before you begin, you’ll need to get out a large (read: GIANT) bowl. Place the peanuts, rice krispies, and marshmallows inside and mix them together with a spatula. At this point you’ll want to lay out some sheets of wax paper. Enough to cover about 2 cookie sheets.
In a separate, microwave safe, bowl combine the chocolate and peanut butter. Microwave for 1 minute. Remove and stir. Continue microwaving at 20 second intervals until chocolate is melted. Be careful not to overheat the chocolate. It will still look like chips, you’ll need to stir it to make it smooth.
Immediately pour chocolate mixture over cereal mix. Stir until coated.
Drop mixture by the spoonful onto the wax paper. Do this quickly as it will harden within about 10 minutes.
Once cool you can place it in a plastic zip up bag and it will keep for up to a week (if you can resist it for that long!).
I packaged mine in cute little orange craft boxes I purchased at Target. I placed a wax paper liner in each before putting in the treat. Figured I should put some cute labels on them to get people in the spirit.
You can get those labels here: LABELS
Hope you’re Halloween is filled with tricks and treats!
