HALLOWEEN RICE KRISPIE TREATS
3 tablespoons stick margarine (this is a time I do use margarine over butter - and don't use the tub margarine - it has water in it)
10 ounces (weighed) orange pumpkin marshmallows
6 cups crisped rice cereal
Prepare a 9x13 pan with vegetable oil spray or margarine - coat bottom and sides.
Melt the margarine in a large pan (I used my non-stick Dutch Oven) over medium low heat.
Add marshmallows and stir with spatula until completely smooth and melted.
Add cereal and stir until completely coated.
Dump coated cereal into prepared pan.
Press coated cereal into the pan until flat and even (be careful not to over-crush the cereal).
(This is a sticky process and, for years, I have used the method of wadding up a piece of waxed paper, rubbing it with margarine and using that to press the cereal into the pan. It works better than anything else I've tried.)
Decorate with Halloween Sprinkles while still "sticky" so they will adhere - if you use large pieces - press them into the treats.
Cut into squares and serve!
We love Rice Krispie treats at our house!
Bon Appetit, Y'all!!!
