Candy Corn Rice Krispy Treats

Pin It

When I got my Everyday Food magazine for October, these adorable treats were printed on the inside back cover.  I already love rice krispy treats, so making them a festive candy corn shape seemed like the right thing to do.  Don't try to divide a single batch and tint each part...just make 3 separate batches because you know how quickly the marshmallow will set up  on you.  Also, add the food coloring to the marshmallow mix BEFORE you pour it over the cereal...much more consistent coloring that way.

Ingredients  for 3 batches
12 C. mini marshmallows (probably need 2 bags)
9 C. cereal
9 T. butter
3/4 tsp. salt

For each batch you'll need:  4 C. marshmallow, 3 C. cereal, 3 T. butter and 1/4 t. salt.

In a saucepan on med-low heat (don't try to do this fast on a higher temperature) melt the butter, then add the marshmallows and salt.  Stir until melted.  Pour over the cereal in a large bowl and stir up with a wooden spoon.

Make up the first batch of treats, don't add any food coloring and press into the bottom of a bread pan that you sprayed with cooking spray.

Make the next batch with orange coloring (or mix red/yellow...more drops of yellow than red).  Press on top of the plain layer.

 Make the 3rd batch and color it yellow and press in to the pan.  Let it sit for about 5 minutes and then plop out of the pan on a cutting board.
Cut the loaf into slices, then cut each slice in half and use your fingers to squish the top together and gently round the edges.

Chevron Thanksgiving Word Art

Pin It
OK, so this post looks remarkably similar to the last one, I just changed holidays. I did bake cookies this week, some yummy ginger molasses cookies, so hopefully I can get that posted too.  In the meantime, here is my Thanksgiving word art.  I printed it in my home printer 8x10 with no trouble, here is the link to the large file, so you should be able to print it at least that large, maybe 11x14.  Gobble, gobble.

Halloween Chevron Subway Art Printable

Pin It
A couple years ago, I started this blog because I had seen another Halloween themed subway art, which inspired me to do some for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I've now done my own Halloween version and am happy to share it with you.  I created it in Photoshop Elements and used the fonts:

Bleeding Cowboys
Wild West Wind

Click here to get the large JPG of the file so you can print it.  It will print 8x10 with no trouble, not sure if you can stretch it to 11x14.  I printed mine on my home printer with photopaper and it looks great :)
