I need you to slowly think back to age 7… You’re sitting at the breakfast table. Can you see what you are eating? Or maybe I should ask, what do you wish you were eating? Was it Count Chocula®? Or maybe Franken Berry®. Or my daughter’s favorite Boo Berry®. Today is flashback cooking day and I’m taking you back to the carefree days of childhood with these spooky fun, Crispy Monster Munch Cereal Bars.
Crispy Monster Munch Cereal Bars
I couldn’t decide which cereal is my favorite, so I made all three :) They’re all super crunchy sweet treats perfect for your Halloween party. Plus they’re super easy to make! Even if you can’t decide which flavor, either.
Build a Spooky Monster Castle
I always loved the silly characters for the monster cereals. For Halloween this year, they’ve added a fun castle building activity to the back of the box. Simply cut out the shapes and start playing. While I was making the three batches of bars for this post, I kept overhearing my girl telling elaborate stories of ghosts and vampires and strawberries. It was pretty hilarious to listen to…
The castle and characters make a super cute snack table decoration, too!
Crispy Monster Munch Cereal Bars Recipe
- 3 T. butter
- 1 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
- 6 cups cereal
- Non-stick cooking spray
- 1/2 cup candy melts in matching colors
Melt butter in a pot over medium heat (you can do this in the microwave too). Add marshmallows and heat until melted, stirring frequently.
Add the cereal and stir until evenly coated with the marshmallow / butter mix.
Press cereal / marshmallow mixture into a greased 9"x13" pan.
Melt candy melts in microwave or double boiler according to package instructions. Pour into a plastic squeeze bottle and drizzle across bars.
Let cool for 1 hour and cut into squares.
Makes 12-16 servings, depending upon how big you made them. Store in an air-tight container for 1-2 days.
I picked up everything I needed for these sweet flashback treats at Target. And while you’re there, pick up supplies for some of these other Spooktacular Snacks over on the Monster cereal site.
