This sweet treat made with marshmallows and mandarin oranges is guaranteed to be a hit at any Halloween party!
Here's a quick and easy Halloween treat your kids will love!
There are only 5 ingredients, and it takes me less than 10 minutes to throw it all together! Go ahead and make a double or even a triple batch for a Halloween party, and then sit back and watch it disappear like a vampire at dawn! (Mu-ha-ha-ha!)
It is a good idea to make a big bunch, because the leftovers are even better the next day!
And if you want even more Halloween goodies, try these Peanut Butter Mummy Cookies! Or if you want a year-round version of this fluffy treat, make this Orange Fluff Salad!

With the summer drawing to an end, the kids and I were feeling “spooky”, so I started looking for a special snack. This recipe popped up, and it looked perfect! We were far too impatient to wait for a trip to the store, so we made substitutions with what we had on hand, and ended up using peach Jello (with a few drops of yellow food coloring to get an orange hue, instead of the pale pink the peach created), and crushed pineapple instead of mandarin oranges. We used it as a dip for chocolate chip cookies, and it was a HUGE hit! Thanks! We’ll definitely be making this again!
Oh nice! So glad you liked this! 🙂
