Owl and Spider Rice Krispie Treats (Cocoa Pebbles)

Halloween Goodies made with Rice Krispie treats (actually Cocoa Pebbles treats!) 

The thing about these treats is they’re super simple, the kids will love them, they are a no-bake treat , and they look like spiders and owls.  
First you need to make your krispie treats.  You use Cocoa Pebbles instead of rice krispies.

Simple Recipe for Cocoa Pebbles Marshmallow Treats:

6 cups Cocoa Pebbles
1 (10.5 oz) bag of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup butter
Spray a 9×9 pan lightly with cooking spray
Melt butter over low heat in large saucepan
When butter is melted stir in your marshmallows until melted.
Remove from heat and stir in your Pebbles.
Press into prepared pan.
Let cool for 15 minutes and cut using knife or cookie cutter.
Number of servings (yield): 12
make treats then use a 2 inch cutter to make circles

for spiders:
Then you’ll need some pretzel sticks, mini marshmallows, a black food writer and if you’re feeling extra creative I used vanilla Tootsie Rolls (flattened for fangs)

Using a rolling pin, flatten the mini marshmallows…

Then you can cut your fangs from the Tootsie Rolls

Now for the adorable Owls
You make them just like the spiders…same eyes and all…just no fangs or legs.
I used an orange Tootsie Roll for the beak…

Break two pretzel sticks and put them in the top like ears or horns…which I totally know owls don’t have horns but it  just made them look more Owl-ish, this is not science class, people.
