S'mores Candy Corn Marshmallow Treats (aka Marshmallow Gremlins)

I can’t remember the last time I made rice crispy treats, that sticky, crispy, sweet marshmallowey (yep, that is a word in my kitchen {smile}) goodness I loved when I was a kid. So when I saw these candy corn marshmallows at my local grocery store, I just knew I had to make some.

Since it had been years from the last time I made marshmallow treats, I forgot how messy the whole making process was! Melted marshmallow sticks to E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! Even the pot and spoons I used to make it. Yes, I used two spoons because the marshmallow was a big blob on one spoon and the other spoon was used to help get the marshmallow off the other spoon, which really wasn’t much help at all! So there I was in my kitchen, laughing like some crazy lady with two spoons full of marshmallow treats!

I really wish you could have been there because you would have been laughing at me! Sorry, no photos of that as my hands were also covered in marshmallow treats. Now I know why kids love making these!

After I got all the marshmallow off my hands and the spoons and into the pan, I finally got smart and sprayed my hands with a little bit of nonstick coconut spray. This worked great as I used my hands to help flatten the top of the marshmallow treats into the pan. I might remember this little trick for the spoons when I make these again {wink}.*

The result are these beautiful orange marshmallow treats sprinkled with S’mores candy corn. Don’t they just look spooktacular!

I like to refer to them as marshmallow gremlins, after the scene in my kitchen when I was creating them {smile}.

*Helpful Hints*

- You might want to spray nonstick cooking spray on utensils used after the cooking process. Of course, you won't have as much fun as I did when making them!

- These would also be great for Thanksgiving treats with their orange coloring and the S'mores candy corns.
