Zachary and I made some monster treats.
I have seen different versions of these crispy treats on Pinterest. My little Zachary has  allergies to several different foods, but with one replacement he is able to eat crispy treats. He is allergic to milk, so we replaced the butter with Earth Balance Coconut Spread, which is a butter alternative.   All you do, different, is add a bit of green food coloring to the marshmallow & butter mixture. The green didn't seam to coat the crispy's as well as some of the examples on Pinterest, I am wondering if that had anything to do with the fact that I replaced the butter? Anyway, he was really happy, so I am happy and he is obsessed with crispy treats now. :)
I thought it would be fun to add a popsicle stick, to the treats, to make it easier to eat them. I am not a huge fan of sticky fingers. :) Once I added the sticks, I knew I needed to dress them up a bit so I stamped them with some Halloween sentiments. If you are going to try this at home, just remember to use Staz On ink, the regular stuff bleeds on the wood.
