Scarecrow Cookie Bars

Pat Duran


These Halloween cookies bars are topped with candy corn, nuts and are nice and chewy.
These can easily be changed to suit any season -by changing up the topping to match the season.
Recipe idea from rice krispies- tweaked by me.

How to Make Scarecrow Cookie Bars


  1. Heat oven to 350^. Press cookie dough onto a 15x10x1- inch cookie pan. I use a rolling pin to make even- and press to the edges with fingertips to fill pan bottom.
    Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.Do not bake done. Remove from oven.
  2. Immediately sprinkle marshmallows over hot, partially baked crust. Return to oven; continue baking for 1 minute or until marshmallows puff.
  3. Combine corn syrup and sugars in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring until mixture comes to a boil 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Stir in cereal, peanuts and candy corn. Immediately spoon over marshmallows; spread to cover. Cool completely. Cut into bars.
  4. Note:
    Other refrigerated cookie dough may be used to change up the cookie flavor.
    Chocolate dough use chocolate chips in place of the candy corn, etc....
