This is your Halloween treat for the week - an extra post with a Halloween treat in it! I bet you're nowhere near as excited as I am right now. These treats are super easy, but still festive and attention grabbing and addictively delicious. They taste something like a Pearson's Nut Roll or a Payday Bar. And since they are cereal treats, they are nearly impossible to screw up. How can you get any better than that?
1 (10.5 oz) bag mini marshmallows + 1 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
1 T peanut butter
1 box (13.8 oz) Honey Nut Chex cereal
1 to 1 1/5 cups (depending on your sweet tooth) candy corn
1 cup lightly salted peanuts
Microwave butter and peanut butter on high for 1 min or until melted. Add the bag of marshmallows (reserving the extra 1 cup aside) and microwave 1 1/2 minutes until marshmallows are melted. Stir the marshmallow/butter mixture until smooth, and add the cereal, candy corn, peanuts and extra 1 cup marshmallows. Stir to combine and press mixture into a greased 9×13 pan. Allow treats to cool, and cut into squares.
