- Butter - You can use salted or unsalted butter for cereal treats. For this particular recipe, it doesn't matter much.
- Marshmallows - I used mini marshmallows for this particular recipe. You can use full size marshmallows if that's what you have on hand.
- Cereal - This recipe uses Count Chocula cereal which is a cereal that comes out every year before Halloween. It's pretty easy to get in the states. If you're in Canada, check out the Candy Funhouse website. We found all the Monster cereals there.
How to Make Count Chocula Krispie Treats:
Begin by spraying a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
- First, add the butter and mini marshmallows to a large microwave safe bowl. Then, place the bowl inside of the microwave and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. Be sure to check every 30 seconds after the first minute of cooking time. Basically, you want the marshmallow to expand, then begin to melt. Next, take the bowl out of the microwave. Stir really well.
- Then, add the cereal and mix again. The cereal should be coated equally in marshmallow mixture. Next, pour into the baking pan you set aside earlier and use the back of a spoon to smooth the top of the krispies.
- Allow them to cool completely.
- Lastly, cut them into squares.
- First, add the butter to a large stockpot over low heat. Allow the butter to melt, then add the marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows melt, then take it off the heat.
- Next, add the cereal to the stockpot and mix well. You want all the cereal coated evenly in marshmallow mixture. Then, pour it into the baking pan you set aside earlier. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the top of the krispies.
- Allow the cereal treats to cool completely.
- Lastly, cut them into squares or pieces.
How to Store Krispie Treats:
- Once cooled, you can store them for later in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
- They can also be stored in the freezer for approximately 6 to 12 weeks.
- Generally speaking, I recommend storing krispies with waxed or parchment paper in between layers to prevent sticking. Otherwise it's a mess!
