  • In a 4- to 6-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows; cook until melted. Stir in marshmallow crème, vanilla, and salt. Remove from heat. Gently stir in cereal. Transfer to prepared pan. Use greased wax paper to press firmly. Cover the treats with a sheet of wax paper and a sheet of foil. Place another 15x10x1-inch baking pan on top of the treats; add a few unopened cans of food to the top of the pan for weight. Weigh treats down and let stand at least 1 hour.

  • Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut 12 circles out of the marshmallow treats. Dunk each circle treat in melted chocolate. Press a sandwich cookie on top, leaving 1/2-inch of space from the top of the cookie to the edge of the circle treat. Place 5 candy corn pieces around the cookie to mimic tail feathers (place one candy corn in the 1/2-inch space above the cookie top). Use remaining melted chocolate as glue and attach candy eyes, yellow candy as beaks and red candy as snoods.
