Everyone’s favorite rice crispy treat turned into festive candy corn shapes perfect for Halloween!
Happy (almost) Halloween!
Spooky Season is here and it is time for 2020’s #HalloweenTreatsWeek event! #HalloweenTreatsWeek is a yearly Halloween blogging event that is hosted by Angie from Big Bear’s Wife & its a creepy and haunting week-long event is filled with some amazingly wicked Halloween treats, recipes and some frightfully fun giveaways.
“When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers ‘tis near Halloween.”
For the 3rd annual #HalloweenTreatsWeek event we have 30 hauntingly talented bloggers that are sharing their favorite Halloween recipes throughout the week!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Not only is it a holiday all about candy and getting dressed up, but it lends itself to so many creative recipes!
An iconic candy item for Halloween is candy corn. I HATE candy corn. But I find myself creating a recipes almost every year that honors these tasteless sugar triangles.
I’ve made candy corn cheesecake mousse, chocolate candy corn and creme cookies, and even added candy corn to my Halloween 7-layer bars so it seemed like it was time to make a rice crispy treat version.
Rice crispy treats are wonderful, because they are so easily adaptable to any holiday. But with a little extra effort, instead of just making an orange, yellow, and white layered treat, I separated the colors into rings in 6-inch cake pans.
The end result are these cute little candy corn wedges that even this candy corn hater loved.

- 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
- 4 cups (10.5 oz. bag) mini marshmallows
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 6 cups puffed rice cereal, divided
- Food coloring (red and yellow)
- Coat three 6-inch cake pans and three medium bowls with nonstick spray, set aside.
- In small pot over low heat melt the butter. Add marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Quickly pour half into one of the greased bowls, 2/3 of what remains in the second bowl, and the remaining third into the third bowl. Add a few drops of red and yellow food coloring to larger one, yellow to the second largest, and keep the smallest amount plain. Add 3 cups of cereal to the orange, 2 cups to the yellow, and 1 cup to the white. Stir until well coated.
- Working quickly with a buttered spatula or greased hands, divide orange mixture between the three cake pans, and create a "ring" around the inside edge of the cake pan. Repeat with the yellow and then place the white in the center.
- Press mixture evenly and firmly. Cool completely before slicing into 8 wedges per pan and serving.

mine was just a ghost and witches
I have a twin, so we were always in paired costumes up until the age of 10 or so. . One year we dressed as Laurel and Hardy, which was my grandma’s idea. One year we were a dog and a cat. My parents had a lot of fun with it.
Haha I bet they did!
My favorite Halloween costume I had when I was young was a pirate girl! It was super cute!
Erin, I have to disagree with your assessment of the flavorless state of candy corn: they taste like artificial bananas. Which is why I join you in hating them. But your rice krispie treats are cute.
Haha I’ve never got banana from them before but if I’m even around them again I’ll have to sample just to see.
