Every year I try to send a fun snack to my son’s Halloween party at school. I like to make something that is easy, fun and doesn’t have too much sugar. These basic treats fit the bill. Treats made of crispy rice cereal and marshmallows are my favorite snack for kids. Most kids love them and they are so easy! They only take ten minutes to make!
This year I decided to jazz them up by searching for something fun and Halloween themed to put in each square. I found the spider rings with gemstones. Click here for a variety of fun ideas. Kids love putting the spider ring on and trying to scare each other, so this is a fun treat to eat with an activity already included!
Growing up we always used a butter covered spoon to smooth out the treats, but a couple years ago I learned to wet my fingers to prevent the treats from sticking. Smoothing with wet fingers is much quicker and easier. Once the treats were smooth, I set a ring on each piece while they were still soft.
I love how fun and festive this treat looks! I’m glad that I can make a quick and easy treat for my son and his classmates to enjoy!
