Halloween Treat

Putting the rice krispies on the marshmallows

An easy-to-make treat for Halloween (or any occasion) involves marshmallows, caramel, and rice krispies.

What you’ll need:
1 bag large marshmallows
1 bag caramels
sweetened condensed milk
1/2 stick butter
rice krispies

Step 1: Melt the caramels, butter, and sweetened condensed milk together.  For best quality, use a double broiler.

Step 2: Dunk the marshmallows in the mixed concoction. Get an even coat.

Step 3:  Pull the marshmallows out and dip them in rice krispies.  Set them on wax paper to let them harden.

The finished product is delicious.
