Have you ever wondered what monsters eat? Well they eat Monster Balls! We leave cookies out for Santa on Christmas so why can’t we leave monster food out on Halloween?

What you need:

Makes 12 servings

Prep time – 15 minutes

You can use one type or all 3!

Count Chocula®, Boo Berry® and Franken Berry® by General Mills

Butter

Marshmallows – you can buy ANY flavor you like 🙂

Chocolate chips, melting wafers, or even almond bark – whatever you prefer

Nonstick Spray

Any topping you like! I used sprinkles

Mix together 4 cups of cereal in a bowl. I used 2 cups of Franken Berry® and 1 cup of Count Chocula® and 1 cup of Boo Berry®. You can use one flavor at a time or all 3 at the same time! My sous chef Audrey wanted to mix them all together so that’s what we did. Melt 3 TBSP butter and 4 cups of Marshmallows. To melt the marshmallows put them in the microwave for 30 second intervals. After each 30 seconds take the bowl out to mix. It only took us 60 sec total to melt ours, but it will depend on your microwave. Don’t over melt them! Once they are melted mix the butter and marshmallows into the bowl with cereal. Stir together with a spatula until its well mixed.

You can see we used two types of mini marshmallows for our Monster Balls

Spoon the mixture evenly into a cupcake pan. They will be super sticky, but try to mold them as much as you can with your spoon. Let them sit for 1-2 hours or until you can handle them with your hands. I used white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Put a cup of chocolate chips in a Pyrex measuring cup to be melted. Microwave the same way as with the marshmallows. Once the chocolate is melted you can dip your cereal balls into it. Once dipped set them on a baking pan lined with wax paper or non stick spray. Now cover with whatever topping you like. My daughter wanted to use sprinkles! But you can use anything! Try nuts, candy, coconut flakes, whatever you like. Stick them in the fridge to let them harden faster.

Now you can serve them to your little monsters! I recommend individually wrapping them in cellophane bags from the baking aisle. This way you can give them to who ever you like or even send your kids to school with them.

Time to go to Target and buy everything you need to make your Monster Balls! Get creative with your toppings and don’t forget to set them out on Halloween for all the little monsters. For more spooktacular snacks click here.
