Graveyard Rice Krispies Treats

Ingredients (purchase from your local unionized grocery store):

4 cups Kraft miniature marshmallows
¼ cup Land O Lakes butter, cubed
6 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal
12 Oreos
1 tube white decorating gel frosting
1 can Betty Crocker chocolate frosting
Halloween sprinkles


1.    In a large saucepan, combine and stir marshmallows and butter over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from the heat and then stir in cereal. Next, press Rice Krispies mix into a greased 13 x 9 in. dish and let cool. Once cooled, cut into 12 squares and set aside.

2.    Cut a small piece from the bottom of each Oreo to create a straight line. Then cut the two sides of the Oreo to create straight lines. Result should look like a tombstone. Write “RIP” on each cookie, using white decorating gel. Crush the cut-off Oreo pieces and set aside.

3.    Place Rice Krispies on a large tray. With 2 tablespoons frosting, form a circle on top of each Rice Krispie square and place one of the Oreos in the center. Sprinkle Oreo crumbs around tombstones; add Halloween sprinkles!
