Candy Corn & Peanut Rice Crispy Treats

So I was in Target the other day (one of my most favorite places) and as I’m getting ready to check out I see a bag of candy corn mixed with peanuts.  Now I like candy corn, I know it has a ton of haters but I like it, I am the only one in the house that eats it though, even Dean won’t touch it, how does a 4-year-old know candy corn isn’t good?!

So I am looking at that bag and thinking how good the salty peanuts must be with the candy corn which reminds me of these rice crispy treats my grandma makes with peanuts in them and voila this recipe for Candy Corn & Peanut Rice Crispy Treats was born!

Now everyone knows how to make rice crispies, you can even microwave them, so it is easy peasy and I just followed the normal recipe and threw in a cup of salted peanuts and a cup of candy corn in with the cereal, dumped all the marshamallowy goodness on top, and gave it a good stir.

These treats are heavenly!  They are the perfect bite, crunchy, salty, chewy, sweet, perfection.

Even if you are among the candy corn haters you should give these a try because they are just awesome!

  11. These are really cute but I must admit that I can’t really wrap my tastebuds around this because I don’t like rice krispy treats {I know, it’s almost un-American} or candy corns but I’m seriously thinking this is the dessert I want to make for an upcoming October party we are attending. I know there will be a lot of people that will like it. Thanks for sharing it at our Making Monday link party. We appreciate you. Have a fabulous weekend.
