Ingredients
  • non-stick spray
  • 5tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 (10-ounce)bag marshmallows(+16 additional marshmallows, regular size)
  • 6cups crispy rice cereal
  • green food coloring(I used the gel/paste kind)
  • candy corn
  • spider rings(if desired)
Instructions
  1. Combine butter and marshmallows in large microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for 30-second intervals until they puff up and are very soft. (Took me 1 min. and 15 sec.)
  3. Spray a spatula with non-stick spray and stir until the marshmallows and butter make a smooth gooey mixture.
  4. Stir in food coloring until you reach your desired shade of green.
  5. Stir in cereal and mix until evenly coated.
  6. Lay out a silicone baking mat or large tray/board sprayed with non-stick spray.
  7. Spray a ¼ cup measuring cup and your hands with non-stick spray.
  8. Scoop out a ¼ cup cereal mixture.
  9. Squeeze the mixture in your hands to compact it.
  10. Roll into a cylindrical shape (like a hot dog.)
  11. Press a candy corn “fingernail” onto the finger and place on a wax or parchment lined tray to firm up*
Recipe Notes

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.
