5 Treats to Make with Halloween Candy

It’s time to indulge in all of the candy collected on Halloween night, and we have some fun, creative ways to help you do it. Read on to find five sweet recipes using Halloween candy!

1. For extraordinary Rice Krispie Treats –
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Rice Krispie Treats

• 1 10 oz. bag of marshmallows
• 4 tbsp. butter
• 6 cups of Rice Krispie cereal
• 16 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Place the butter and marshmallows in a large pot, cooking over low heat until melted. Stir in the cereal. Press 3 cups of the cereal into a parchment lined square baking pan. Top with the 16 Peanut Butter Cups (press them into the cereal just a bit). Top with the remaining 3 cups of cereal (press firmly; using wet hands makes pressing the cereal much easier – it is VERY sticky). Cool completely before cutting into squares.
