Yesterday we were invited to a friend's family get together and our assignment was to bring "finger treats" for the kids. My mind went immediately to rice crispy treats but I wanted to spice it up a bit. I am a chocolate lover, so I thought, why couldn't we make them with coco pebbles instead? Of course, we wanted to make them festive so we decided to make regular rice crispy treats for the purists in the form of ghosts and chocolate ones as bats.
Let me tell you, they were a hit! Sometimes it is so easy to feel like you have to do some big elaborate thing in order for it to be cute or festive, but you don't. I love how this was so simple, but still yummy and fun.
When we were newly married my husband surprised me with this cookie cutter set. I love it so much! I use them tons and I know they will get even more use as the kiddies get older. That is where I found the ghost and bat cookie cutters.
Here's the recipe:
5-6 cups coco pebbles cereal (I used generic brand)
4 cups marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
Melt butter in large pot over low heat. Add in marshmallows and stir until mixed together. Remove from heat and add your cereal, stirring to coat. Spray a cookie sheet with pam and press mixture into pan. Cut into shapes or squares and enjoy!
