How did the Witches lose their fingers?

Well, let's just say they won't feel the urge to text from the dinner table any time soon....Mu-ah-ha-ha-ha!

Need a fun treat for your tricksters?  These crispy rice cereal treats were so much fun to make!  Plus, any day I get to dig my hands into green sticky goo is a good day in my book!  They're super easy to make and you just need 5 ingredients and 1 bowl!

Makes 18 fingers
Total time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
Non-stick spray

5 tablespoons salted butter
1 (10-ounce) bag marshmallows +16 additional marshmallows (regular size)
6 cups crispy rice cereal
Green food coloring (I used the gel/paste kind)
Candy corn

Spider rings if desired

Directions:
Combine butter and marshmallows in large microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 30-second intervals until they puff up and are very soft.  (Took me 1 min. and 15 sec.)  Spray a spatula with non-stick spray and stir until the marshmallows and butter make a smooth gooey mixture.  Stir in food coloring until you reach your desired shade of green.  Stir in cereal and mix until evenly coated.  

Lay out a silicone baking mat or large tray/board sprayed with non-stick spray.  Spray a ¼ cup measuring cup and your hands with non-stick spray.  Scoop out a ¼ cup cereal mixture.  Squeeze the mixture in your hands to compact it.  Roll into a cylindrical shape (like a hot dog.)  Press a candy corn “fingernail” onto the finger and place on a wax or parchment lined tray to firm up.

Notes:  
-The candy corn will seem loose when they’re first pressed on, but will firm up as will the crispy mixture.
-The mixture is easier to work with as it firms up a little.  You can always go back and reshape the fingers as they firm up.  
-You can make these a couple days in advance and store in an airtight container.
