I've been testing sweet and easy treats out for our teens upcoming Halloween party. Cereal teats are pretty popular in the baking world because they aren't only delicious, they are super simple to whip together!
Our 5 year old son Hollis has recently discovered Zombies (thanks to Disney) so I thought it would be fun to create a Zombie Halloween Cereal Treat.
These treats only take about 20 minutes to make too so even if you're just looking for a fun afternoon Halloween treat for your kids these would work!
Happy Treat Baking!
ZOMBINE HALLOWEEN CEREAL TREATS
makes 12 treats
5 cups Krispy rice cereal
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp butter
1 10oz bag mini marshmallows
5-6 drops green food coloring
candy eye balls
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk (you can also use half and half or water)
5 drops red food coloring
Melt 1/4 cup butter in a medium size pot over medium heat.
Once the butter is melted, add in full bag of marshmallows and continuously stir with a wooden spoon until melted.
Remove pot from heat and stir in green food coloring.
To the same pot add 5 cups of Krispy rice cereal and stir until well combined.
Grease a square casserole dish with 1 tbsp butter. Do this with your hands so some of the butter remains on them for the next step.
Press cereal + marshmallow mixture into casserole dish evenly.
For quick setting put in the freezer for 5 minutes
While your treats set, combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. Stir together with a whisk and once combined add in red food coloring. This icing is should be thick, but still pourable. If too thin, add a little more powdered sugar until you get the right consistency.
Take the cereal treats out of the freezer and using a sharp knife cut them into rectangles. Don't worry if they aren't exactly the same size since all Zombies are a bit different!
Hold one zombie treat in one hand and hold it over your red icing bowl. Using the whisk drizzle over the head of the zombie (for brains) and then drizzle over the face too. Take your candy eyes and place them anywhere you want to on the face of the Zombie.
