These Scarecrow Bars are easy to make and the perfect Halloween treat for your next celebration!



  • 1 (18.25 oz) yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cup crushed Rice Chex
  • 2 cups Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 cup candy corn


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick spray
  3. In your stand mixer, combine cake mix, egg and butter. Stir on medium-low speed until a thick batter comes together. Press into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes, until the edges of the crust are lightly browned.
  4. While crust is baking make your topping. In a medium saucepan combine corn syrup and both sugars, heating over medium until is starts to boil. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and peanut butter. Return back to stove top on the lowest setting until the crust is done baking. You don’t want to continue cooking the peanut butter mixture, you just want to keep it warm.
  5. As soon as crust is done, sprinkle with marshmallows and put back in the oven for 1-2 minutes until the marshmallows puff. Remove immediately.
  6. While the marshmallows are puffing mix your peanuts, Rice Chex and Candy Corn into the peanut butter mixture. Stir until coated evenly.
  7. Immediately spread this over the marshmallows as soon as they come out of the oven.
  8. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
