This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Celebration by Frey. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic I hope you enjoy this recipe for easy and colorful crispy rice treats.
I can’t believe it’s October!
When did that happen? But you know what October brings, don’t you?
I love Halloween and yet I’ve lived most of my life in places with no trick or treaters. That doesn’t mean that I don’t
eat enjoy all of the sweets and treats that go along with the day. Especially the holiday colored Sixlets® from Celebration by Frey™. They are perfect for making spooky treats like these easy and colorful crispy rice treats. It doesn’t matter if you are making them for yourself or for your holiday parties, you will find just what you need to make your treats special at Celebration by Frey.
I’ll be ready for the the costumed visitors – I’ve got my treat basket filled with Sixlets and gumballs; some have scary eyes and some have Nerds inside! I have to admit that I love the gumballs with nerds inside; that little extra bit of sour is such a surprise. These tasty (and spooky) candies can be found at the stores where you regularly do your shopping – Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Wegmans, Meijer among others.
That makes it easy to pick up a selection to have ready for the little ghouls and goblins that will come knocking at your door. (Or the cats that can’t help but help when you are trying to get ready for your costumed little visitors. I swear – NOTHING gets done around here without some kind of “help” from the Farm cats.)
Sixlets are not just for munching! You can also use them for making spooky treats for Halloween. I decided to spookify a popular favorite of both kids and adults. As I was making them it seemed to me that the melting marshmallows looked like melting ghosts. Bwahahahaha.
Easy and Colorful Crispy Rice Treats
(a printable recipe is available at the bottom of the post)
