Candy Corn Rice Crispy Treats

Where has this month gone! With just a little over a week until Halloween,I thought I'd share this idea for candy corn rice crispy treats. These festive treats are perfect for Halloween parties, bake sales, etc... To make them extra special, I topped the rice crispy treats with white chocolate and added some orange and yellow sprinkles and candy corn. Super cuteness! And they taste great too.

Candy Corn Rice Crispy Treats

4 tablespoons butter
1 (10 ounce) bag marshmallows
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 cups Crispy Rice Cereal
1 cup rough chopped candy corns
1 bag white chocolate candy melts (12 ounces)
Spray a 13x9 baking dish and rubber spatula with non stick spray. Place white chocolate candy melts in a bowl. Follow the manufactures instructions for melting the white chocolate. Set aside and make the rice crispy treats.
In a medium sized sauce pan over low heat, add butter and let it melt. Once melted add marshmallows, salt, and vanilla. Stir until the marshmallows have melted completely and have reached a smooth consistency. Remove from heat and fold in the cereal and candy corns until completely coated. Add the mixture to the greased baking dish and smooth out evenly. 
Spoon the melted white chocolate onto the rice crispy treats. Using the back of a spoon or an off-set spatula, spread the melted white chocolate evenly over the top of the rice crispy treats. Immediately add sprinkles and decorate the top with whole candy corns, if desired.. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
What is it about candy corn that makes them just so darn cute?
