Tom Cats For Trick Or Treat Visitors
 ...So Easy And Thrifty To Make!

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine (for greasing bowl and fingers)
  • 1 package bite size shredded rice biscuits
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • ½ pound (about 30) marshmallows
  • 9 black jelly beans
  • 4 marshmallows
  • Shredded coconut
Preparation Instructions

Butter generously a 4-quart bowl. Pour bite-size shredded rice biscuits into bowl. Heat the 1/3 cup butter  and marshmallows over boiling water until marshmallows are melted, stirring often to blend. Pour marshmallow mixture evenly over cereal. Mix with large spoon until all cereal is coated. Let stand 15 minutes to cool and be easy to handle. Divide into six equal portions. With buttered hands firmly press each portion into a 2 ½ inch ball. Make a face
on each ball.

For eyes, cut six jelly beans in half lengthwise. For whiskers, stick two or three long coconut shreds under mouths. For ears, cut each marshmallow into three triangle-shaped pieces. Use one triangle for each ear. Insert wooden stick into bottom of ball. Let stand (each in a tall glass) until firm, about four hours. Makes six Tom Cats.
