Classic Rice Krispies Treats get a fun fall upgrade with candy corn marshmallows, candy corn, and colored chocolate drizzle on top!

When I was a kid candy corn was always a favorite of mine.  I would bit the layers off one at a time.  It’s not that they taste different because they don’t, but I like eating one color at a time.

Now that I’m older I still like candy corn though I can’t eat nearly as much of it.   I can eat about one handful and then I’m done.  It’s so good but it’s so sweet.

I do like making things with candy corn in them.   When I was at the store the other day I saw these adorable candy corn shaped marshmallows that taste like candy corn too!  They were made by Jet-Puffed and I found them at Wal-Mart.

can i substitute the candy corn marshmallows?

If you cannot find the candy corn marshmallows just use regular marshmallows in place of them and add a few drops of orange food coloring to the marshmallows when they are melting in the pot.   It won’t have as much candy corn flavor but you will get the right color and the candy corn flavor from the actual candies in this recipe.

I thought the candy corn marshmallows were awesome and had to buy a bag.  I figured if nothing else I could put them in hot cocoa and make candy corn cocoa.

Use up that candy corn by making these Candy Corn Krispies Treats!

Once I got them home all I could think was Rice Krispies treats.   I thought if I added in candy corn and used the candy corn marshmallows I could make the ultimate Halloween Krispies treat.


  • butter (I like to use salted but you can use unsalted)
  • candy corn marshmallows (or regular ones if you can’t find the flavored ones)
  • rice cereal (I use Rice Krispies but any puffed rice cereal will work)
  • candy corn
  • yellow, orange, and white chocolate or candy melts

This version of Rice Krispies Treats is very similar to making the original.   The butter is melted in a large pot over medium heat.   Then the marshmallows are added in and stirred until they have melted.

Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the rice cereal and candy corn.   Mix until well combined.

can i chop the candy corn?

You can certainly chop it if you don’t want big pieces of it in your treats.  I like to leave them whole because then people know what they are biting into without me having to tell them plus it just looks more fun with whole candy corn in the mix.

Once everything is mixed together spread the mixture into a 9 x 13 pan that is greased with butter or cooking spray.  It’s important the pan is sprayed so the treats don’t stick to the pan.

how can I get the treats in the pan without them sticking?

I use two methods to get the Rice Krispies Treats into my prepared pan.  The first thing I do is to spoon it into the pan the best I can.  Then I take a piece of waxed paper and press the mixture into the pan.   The other way I do this is to coat one of my hands in cooking spray and press the mixture into the pan with my covered hand.

After the Krispies treats had hardened I took a bite. They were sweet and tasted of candy corn.    While I really liked how they tasted, I thought they were lacking something in looks.

So I decided to add some melted orange, yellow, and white chocolate to the top of the treats.   They looked so awesome and definitely reminded me of candy corn.   They are perfect for fall or Halloween.

Not only do these treats taste delicious but they look fabulous too.   They are easy to transport and would be a fun treat for classroom parties or a Halloween gathering with friends.
