The best part about Halloween isn’t dressing up in costume or watching scary movies — it’s eating the treats. While enjoying a handful of your favorite fun-sized candy bars is the easiest way to celebrate the holiday, getting a little crafty is always fun — especially when there are sticky-sweet marshmallows involved. There’s no need to overcomplicate these DIY food treats, however. Here’s how to keep them simple and fun.

Change Up Treats You Already Know and Love

If you’re looking to share a few new treats this Halloween, call on marshmallow treats that already win and give them a seasonal twist. Fold candy corn into Rice Krispies Treats and suddenly they are Halloween Rice Krispies Treats ready to be enjoyed with extra delight, thanks to the seasonal upgrade. Or add orange and black touches to s’mores with a swap-in of chocolatey graham crackers and a shower of orange sprinkles to make them holiday ready.

Don’t Forget That Marshmallows Are a Treat in Themselves

Yes, turning marshmallows into orange-hued popcorn balls is a good idea, but don’t forget that marshmallows are a Halloween treat all on their own. Dip them in colored water or white chocolate and sprinkles to make them a bit more festive, or stick a chocolate chip in the top to turn the marshmallows into spooky floating eyeballs in hot cocoa to begin or end Halloween day with a smile.
