Creepin It Real With Spooky Sweets

Times are different, but that doesn’t mean we’re not creepin it real over here. Trick-or-treating may not be the same as in years past, but one thing our family and friends can count on is spooky inspired sweet treats from us. Our Mummy Pumpkin Spice Cheerio Bars will surely help get all of us in the Halloween Spirit!

11 oz. bag (about 1 ½ cups) butterscotch chips
3/4 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
6 cups Pumpkin Spice Cheerios
1 cup white chocolate chips M&Ms
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Lightly spray a 9×13″ cake pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butterscotch chips, light corn syrup, butter, and mini marshmallows on high for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Stir after each minute.

Stir in the pumpkin pie spice until evenly mixed.

Add the Cheerios and quickly mix them in until they are evenly coated.

Press the Cheerio mixture into your prepared pan. Press with a spoon (or your hands) that have been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Heat at 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Heat until smooth; then stir in the cinnamon.

Add the melted white chocolate to a plastic baggie and then snip off one corner of the baggie in order to drizzle the chocolate over the bars. Add M&Ms for eyes.

Refrigerate for about one hour or until firm. Slice and enjoy thus special treat from your mummy!
