Halloween Rice Krispie Treats are delicious and very easy to create; perfect for a Halloween party dessert menu.
1 cup Karo light corn syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
8 ounces chocolate chips (1 cup)
8 ounces butterscotch chips (1 cup)
1 tube Betty Crocker Cookie Icing, White
- Line a 13 x 9-inch pan with parchment paper or lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
- Combine the sugar and corn syrup in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently. When the mixture begins to boil, remove it from the heat. (Approximately 1-2 minutes)
- Stir in peanut butter. When blended, mix in the cereal. Fold together until well coated. While the mixture is still warm, press into the bottom of the pan. It will get harden as it cools.
- When cool and firm, lift the bars out of the pan by holding on to the parchment paper ends on each side.
- Melt the chocolate and butterscotch chips using a microwave or a double boiler. Stir frequently. When melted, pour over the bars. Spread evenly with a spatula.
- Next, prepare the icing tube. Knead it, according to the directions on the package, to soften it.
- To create a spider web design, use the icing tube to pipe a spiral on top of the chocolate. Start in the center and move outward in a circular motion. Pull your “spokes” out from the center with a decorating tool.
- Let harden before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
Do Not Overcook. The bars will be stiff and chewy if you cook too long. Add the peanut butter to the sugar mixture shortly after the sugar melts into the corn syrup.
Important. Knead the tube of icing to get the proper consistency for the spider web design.
