Frankenstein Rice Crispy Treats

While searching for recipes that I could have kids make at the Tricks & Treats Workshops I found this cute recipe for Frankenstein Rice Crispy Treats. We will be making them tonight!!!

The picture is a scan from the magazine.

Makes 18 bars
¼ cup unsalted butter
1 10oz package of large marshmallows
1 tsp green food color
6 cups rice crispy cereal
18 wooden craft sticks

Decorations: Black or white decorator icing or gel. Assorted candies for decorating, such as M&M, skittles, small jelly beans, jumbo candy confetti, candy corn, pretzel sticks and mini marshmallows.

Line a 13x9 inch pan with aluminum foil, extending over the edges. Butter foil generously; set aside.

Melt butter in a large 6 quart saucepan over medium low heat; add marshmallows. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in food color. Stir in cereal until well coated.

Place mixture into prepared pan. Press down firmly with buttered hands, (I prefer wet/water on my hands). Cool completely.

Invert bars onto a large cutting board; remove foil. Cut bars into 18 (3x2 inch) rectangles. Press craft stick into short side of each bar.

Use icing to create hair and attach candies for face, as desired. Let cool about an hour. Store in single layer in container with tight fitting lid.

I will be bringing my big camera to work to take a few pictures.
