For Puffed Rice Treats:
To Decorate:


  • Line a 9-in square pan with parchment paper, leaving overhang on two sides. Melt 1 stick unsalted butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add a 10-oz. bag marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Fold in 6 cups puffed rice sweetened crisp rice or quinoa cereal and ¼ tsp. Kosher salt to coat. With buttered hands, press cereal mixture evenly into prepared pan. Refrigerate for at least one hour, then use the paper to transfer the bars to a cutting board. Cut into 12 rectangular pieces.

  • Cut out a deep "V" shape on one of the shorter sides of each bar. Melt 1 lb. dark or white chocolate. Working one at a time, dip the end of a wooden ice-pop stick into chocolate and gently push two-thirds of the way into each bar. Use a mini offset spatula or spoon to coat one side of each bar in chocolate. While the chocolate is still wet, place split Oreos or Mini Oreos, cream-side up for eyes, use brown Reese's Pieces for eyeballs and cut a second orange Reese's in half for the nose. Add 2 sliced almonds or Honey Smacks cereal for wings. Refrigerate until ready to serve.


Switch it up! Substitute the puffed rice cereal for puffed quinoa, which you can find in health food stores or here.


In a glass bowl add butter and marshmallow. Heat in a microwave on high in 30 second intervals, stirring, until melted.
