I’m not much of a fan of Halloween. Sure, I like decorating the house a little and find myself unable to resist the festive cartoons that air on TV, even though I’ve seen them about a million times. But I don’t like being scared and I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since second grade. Seriously.
There is one thing I absolutely, positively love about Halloween: CANDY! I’ve already stocked up on Williams Sonoma’s amazing candy and I need to get my Jelly Belly order in soon. I also head to Target and drug stores to stock up. I’ve only hit Target so far this year and was unimpressed by the selection. It was all chocolate with a little candy corn. I don’t mind candy corn, but as you know, chocolate is not an option for me with my allergy. It was a pretty big bummer. Maybe more gummy candy will come in, and I definitely need to head to some other stores.
The trip wasn’t a total bust, though, because then I spotted Halloween cereals. In the blink of an eye my arms were filled with cereal boxes. Boo Berry (which I tried and loved last year), Frute Brute, and Fruity Yummy Mummy are now in my pantry calling my name. I didn’t pick up Franken Berry, but you know I’ll be making another trip for a box. These are old school cereals that had previously been discontinued but are now back for the season. I think this is a great idea and I love them. Seasonal treats are always so fun to stock up on. If there’s a shortage of Candy Corn Oreos, I’m probably to blame.
Like candy, I also have a thing for cereal. I don’t eat it all the time, but there are always at least five boxes of cereal in my pantry. Chex (mostly for those Puppy Chow cravings), Rice Krispies, Cap’n Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cheerios, and now these fun, fruity, marshmallow-y cereals have joined the assortment.
I wasn’t planning on baking with them, but then I saw that this week’s Sunday Supper theme was crunchy and I put two and two together. Enter Boo Berry Cereal Treats. These no bake treats are ooey, gooey, messy, but I think that makes them taste even better. The Boo Berry flavor shines through and they stay super crunchy. These easy to make treats are sure to be a Halloween hit!

5 ½ cups Boo Berry Cereal
5 cups mini marshmallows
½ stick unsalted butter
Line a 9 by 13 inch pan with parchment, leaving overhang for easy removal.
In a large bowl, place marshmallows and butter. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir very well to promote melting. An additional 15-30 seconds may be necessary to be sure the mixture is fully melted. Once melted, add the cereal and stir until it is fully coated in marshmallow goo.
Working quickly because the mixture gets stickier and harder to work with by the second, pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth into an even layer using your hands or the back of a spoon. Allow to cool for about 2 hours to set. Cut into bars and serve. Bars may be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
