  • Here are more tricks and treats for Halloween.

Monster Cereal Treats

Our candy bowl is full! Bring on the Trick-or-Treaters!

As a kid Halloween was one of my favorite holidays – and I still enjoy it as an adult. Although now my Halloween nights are spent handing out candy to kids in our neighborhood (which is probably the BEST part of owning a home ).

The weekend before Halloween we like to get a group of our friends together for our annual Bat Cave & Bonfire outing (here’s 2010 & 2011) and this year was our 5th year! It’s my favorite Halloween tradition

The original location has been long since closed, but Lance and I explored a little and found a new and improved spot. We hit the jackpot with not one, but two mines to check out!

Everyone grabbed their flashlights and headed in

Crystal and I found this upward tunnel, which at one point in time was probably an air shaft or something.

We found some bats hanging around

And this turquoise colored rock was all over the walls of the mine

The cave went pretty far back and had lots of split off tunnels to explore

Ross got chased out of the cave by a few bats

After checking out the caves we started our bonfire – it was a little windy so we tried to block out a little of the wind to get the fire going.

Anyone notice that our wood pile looks like wood flooring? Yep, it is. It’s (damaged)unfinished cherry wood flooring – we saved it from the garbage pile It was quite possibly the most expensive bonfire wood ever.

Everyone loaded up their sticks with hotdogs

Then later some marshmallows (regular & GIANT ones haha) and S’mores

My newest creation – a marshmallow, a Reese’s pb cup and banana slices, all smushed between a couple of graham crackers. No recipe necessary

The rest of the night was spent chatting and sipping on some hot chocolate.

Do any of you guys remember these monster cereals from Halloween when you were a kid? Maybe this commercial? I always wanted them but I was always unsuccessful at convincing my mom to buy it.

Last year I saw that Target carried them and I jumped on the chance to buy a box – I ended up making these. This year I saw them pop up at most of the grocery stores in my area, so this year I went with Franken Berry and Boo Berry to make something fun in the kitchen.

What’s the best thing to do with Monster cereal? Make monster cereal treats, of course!

Kix Marshmallow Treat Balls

There are boxes of cereal all over the Test Kitchen. Having not strolled down that aisle for a while let’s just say I was inspired. Kix caught my eye because they are colorful and fruity and their tiny spherical shape made me think of making these into balls as opposed to squares – although from the images you can see that I did both.

Think fruity, colorful popcorn balls but made with cereal and melted marshmallow. The only trick with these is that you have to allow the mixture to cool a little bit before forming the balls. Not only so that the mixture isn’t too hot to handle but also so that the mixture has cooled enough to be sticky enough to create the balls. If you form the balls while too hot, the balls shape won’t hold.

Also check out our S’mores Marshmallow Treats and the Cappuccino Crispy Treats . To form into bars, simply refer to either of these two recipes but use this Kix mixture.

Monster Cereals Are Back!

You already know how much we love colorful, creative desserts made with classic breakfast cereals, but the folks at General Mills have really got us excited to test out some new cereal-based sweets this Halloween. Made with everyone's favorite autumn breakfast indulgence, Monster Cereals, these creative treats are super easy, adorable, and sugary-sweet &mdash and perfect for little hands to pick up and enjoy. They're just right for a not-too-scary Halloween bash for the kids (but we're pretty sure the nostalgic adults in the group will love them, too).

&bull 2 cups desired monster cereal (such as Boo Berry&trade, Franken Berry&trade and/or Count Chocula&trade)

Monster Cookies

Cream butter with sugars until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and kosher salt. Add to mixing bowl and mix till combined. After that, add in remaining ingredients in whatever quantity you prefer. Add more nuts if you'd like, or more M & M's, more peanut butter chips or chocolate chips.

Add Rice Crispies at the very end, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix!

Use a cookie scoop to scoop balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, then allow to cool on a rack.

Serve with glasses of cold milk.

As I lamented on Twitter yesterday afternoon, I was having trouble deciding whether to make a soup, a casserole, or a main dish salad for dinner. I kept going back and forth and I just couldn&rsquot make up my mind.

So I just made cookies instead.

These are generally called Monster Cookies, but could also be called &ldquoEverything Cookies&rdquo since they have everything in them&hellipbut I already have a version of Everything Cookies on my site and Hyacinth would get mad at me.

Make these your own, bumping up quantities of whatever ingredients float your boat: M&M&rsquos, nuts, chocolate chips&mdashjust adjust as you feel led. Rather than add peanut butter to the dough as most Monster Cookie recipes do, I add peanut butter chips. I like to keep the oatmeal cookie flavor as the base.

And eat &rsquoem with a tall glass of cold milk. There&rsquos nothing better in the world.

Except maybe that soup I made afterward. But that&rsquos another recipe for another time.
