Halloween Alien Pops Recipe


¼ cup + 2 Tablespoons butter
6 cups of miniature marshmallows
2/3 cup butterscotch chips
¼ cup creamy peanut butter
green food coloring
8 cups puffed rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies

4. Stir in chips and peanut butter until melted and smooth.

5. Make mixture light green with food coloring.

6. Remove from heat.

7. Coat inner sides of pot with non-stick cooking spray so cereal won't stick.

9. Press mixture into jelly roll pan to make 1-inch thick, 12x10 inch rectangle.

10. Draw an alien's head on a piece of waxed paper. Make drawing approximately 3 1/2" long, and cut out.
