Candy Corn Rice Krispies Treats

I know what you are thinking... Candy corn mixed in with Rice Krispies treats? Sugar overload, right? Wrong!



This is a delicious treat perfect use for all of the candy corn available at this time of year. Oddly, I find candy corn too sugary to eat on its own, but mixed in with the cereal treats, it is a great way to enjoy this seasonal candy icon. Fearing I had become immune to sugar, I brought these for some skeptical coworkers to try. They were pleasantly surprised as well and have requested another batch!

A few months ago, I made another twist on Rice Krispies treats. Do you have any favorite variations?


Ingredients
3 Tbsp margarine
4 cups miniature marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 1/2 cups candy corn

Instructions
In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. 
Add cereal and stir. Add candy corn and stir.
Press mixture into a 13x9 inch pan.
Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
Yields 30 squares.
