Ingredients

For the Treats:

Cooking spray

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 10-ounce bag mini marshmallows

Pinch of kosher salt

4 cups cinnamon cereal squares (such as Cinnamon Toast Crunch)

3 cups crisp rice cereal

For the Icing:

2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

1 tablespoon meringue powder

Black candy-coated chocolates, for decorating

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. Make the treats: Line a 9-inch square baking dish with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on two sides; lightly coat with cooking spray. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and salt and cook, stirring, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in both cereals until coated, then press into the prepared pan. Let sit at room temperature until firm, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, make the icing: Whisk 2 cups confectioners' sugar and the meringue powder in a large bowl until combined. Add 4 tablespoons water and beat with a mixer on medium-high speed until smooth and the consistency of a thick glaze. Add 1 to 2 more tablespoons water if the icing is too thick. Cover with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap and set aside until ready to use.
  3. Lift the treats out of the pan using the foil overhang, then cut into rectangles. Insert a lollipop stick into each. Brush an even layer of icing on the cereal treats with a pastry brush. Add the remaining 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and the ground cinnamon to the remaining icing; beat with the mixer until thick and pipable. Transfer to a small resealable plastic bag and snip a corner. Pipe thin lines on the cereal treats to look like bandages and add 2 chocolate candies for eyes. Let set, about 15 minutes.
