We all have our favorite in this house. My son loves Boo Berry®. My husband’s favorite is Count Chocula® and mine of course if Frankenberry®. It’s been my favorite since I was a little girl. Each bite reminds me of my childhood. It’s funny how a simple box of cereal can hold so many memories.
This year, I’m shaking things up. Instead of just eating the cereal for breakfast I’m making all sorts of spooktacular treats. Like these Spooky Monster Cereal Balls. I made these last weekend for a movie night treat.
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Serving Size: 18 Cereal Balls
- One box of Frankenberry® Cereal
- One box of Boo Berry® Cereal
- One box of Count Chocula® Cereal
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- One bag of mini marshmallows
In a saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Once the butter is melted add the bag of marshmallows. Stir constantly until melted. Grab three bowls and add 4 cups of cereal to each bowl.
Once the marshmallows are melted divide the mixture into 3 parts and pour over each bowl of cereal and stir. Do one at a time to make sure you can coat all of the cereal.
Spray a foiled lined cookie sheet and your hands with some non-stick cookign spray. Grab a hadnful of the cereal and shape into a ball. Add a few candy monster eyes and place on the cookie sheet.
Remove from the fridge and place on a plate to serve or place in a clear bag and tie with a tag and some ribbon for a cute party favor.
This recipe made six Spooky Cereal Balls in each flavor. If you want to make a big batch for a party just double the recipe.
Right now you can pick up special boxes of the monster cereals iwth a fun Halloween haunted house cut out on the back of specially marked boxes only available at Target. I found these boxes on an end cap in the grocery department.
I cut out the pieces while my son attached them together and place the figures and decorations around. I wanted to display the house as part of our dessert table decor so I attached it to a black cake stand with a little tape. It can even be easily attached to a plate or anything else if you don’t have a black cake stand. It made the perfect little display table and I loved the finished look.
