This is Halloween, everybody make a scene! Nerdoween is finally here! Shout it from the roof tops, spook your co-workers, because it’s the scariest time of year when we get dressed up, drink our fill of pumpkin spice and bring out all the tricks and treats.
These no-bake cookies are easy to make and a fun way to incorporate Nightmare Before Christmas into your holiday baking. Cereal treats with a little bit of green dye, dried mango eyes and coconut teeth, these sinister sweets are what makes Halloweentime the best time. All hail to the Pumpkin King!
-6 cups corn flakes cereal
-1 package (approximately 40) marshmallows
-2 Tablespoons butter
-Green food gel dye
Prep a baking sheet with a silpat or wax paper.
In a large pan melt the butter and marshmallows over medium heat. Add the green food gel dye and stir together until completely melted. Remove from the heat.
Stir in the corn flakes until coated, then spoon onto the prepped baking sheet, forming 4-inch wreath shapes.
Use clean kitchen shears to cut the dried mango into almond shapes for the eyes, then use a toothpick to add a black pupil for the center of the eyes.
Cut coconut into pointed strips for the teeth and add red hots to decorate.
Use the kitchen shears again to cut the fruit roll up into a bow shape and place onto the bottom of each wreath.
