I first made these years ago when I taught at Young Chefs Academy. I came up with special Fall/Halloween Workshops and each week was a different theme. Well one week was Frankenstein and the kids loved making these.
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
1 (10-ounce) package (40) large marshmallows
1 teaspoon green food color (I used Americolor Electric Green)
6 cups crisp rice cereal
18 wooden craft sticks, if desired
Black or white decorator icing or gel, Assorted candies for decorating, such as, bright colored candy-coated chocolate pieces, small jelly beans, jumbo candy confetti, candy corn, pretzel sticks and/or mini marshmallows
Line 13x9-inch pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Butter foil generously; set aside.
Melt butter in large 6-quart saucepan over medium-low heat; add marshmallows. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally until melted and smooth (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. Cool completely.
Invert bars onto large cutting board; remove foil. Cut bars into 18 (3x2-inch) rectangles. Press craft stick into short side of each bar, if desired.
Use icing to create hair and attach candies for face, as desired. Let set about 1 hour. Store in single layer in container with tight-fitting lid.
If you are going to use sticks make sure to lay the treat flat and with one hand press the the top of the treat and insert stick. That way the treat doesn't get disfigured. Same goes with the neck bolts.
I am going to let Miss V decorate some when she gets home from school.
