Halloween Cereal Bars Recipe
It’s almost Halloween and that means everyone’s favorite Halloween cereal is back!  General Mills Count Chocula®, Boo Berry®, and Franken Berry® are back in stores with a fun twist, Target’s exclusive packaging has a cool build-able castle on the back of the boxes.  This had my kids jumping with excitement over the perfect combination of a yummy treat and a fun activity.
 
 
Once we got home from our shopping trip, the kids were excited to start building their castle.  This meant I needed to pull out the cereal bags from the three boxes.  So there was no better time to whip up some Gooey Halloween Cereal Treats!
These are incredibly simple to make and the perfect sweet treat to celebrate the Halloween season.  
 

Gooey Halloween Cereal Bars Recipe

prep time: 30 minutes + a couple of hours of letting treats set
makes 12 large bars
 

Ingredients to make Halloween Cereal Bar Treats

6 cups of cereal
4 tbs Butter
10oz bag of mini marshmallows
Melting chocolate or chocolate chips in choice of color
Holiday sprinkles
 

How to Make These Sweet Cereal Bars

Start by melting the butter in a large saucepan on low heat, once it is melted add marshmallows and stir continuously so that the marshmallow doesn’t get stuck to the pan.
 
After the marshmallows are fully melted, stir in the 6 cups of cereal and mix everything together.  Mix until all the cereal is coated with gooey marshmallow.
 
Next, remove the cereal mixture from the stove and spread the mixture over a tray or pan.
Add more Halloween fun to the top of the cereal mixture with some holiday-themed sprinkles, then set aside for a couple of hours while marshmallow hardens.
 
Once the treats are set, cut them into bars.  You can make them any size you’d like.
 
Next, dip the bottoms in chocolate, for Halloween I chose orange melting chocolate.  After they are all dipped, place them in the fridge for a couple of minutes to harden the chocolate.
 
Once the bottom chocolate layer is hardened, turn them over and drizzle chocolate over the tops of the treats.  You can also add more sprinkles to make them extra festive.
 
Place the treats back in the fridge for a couple more minutes so that all the chocolate is hardened.
 
That’s it, your Halloween cereal bars are ready to be devoured!
 
 
Before we sat down to enjoy these yummy treats, we had fun making our Halloween castle.
 
On the back of each of the Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry cereal boxes from Target have the pieces to the castle.
 
We had a blast building the castle, putting together the characters, and accessories, then the kids put their imagination to work and played while enjoying a yummy breakfast treat.
