Sorry this is a little late but it’ll be great to save for next year! I love rice krispies and making rice krispie treats any way possible, sometimes I’ll add peanut butter or M&M’s sometimes even both! But during the Halloween season I kept seeing these cute little pumpkin treats so I decided to give it a try. I had to go to work on Halloween day and had yet to bring my co-workers something delicious so I felt this was the perfect treat! It’s super simple and come christmas maybe we can make a tree instead. Rice Krispie treats are very versatile and again very easy and not time-consuming. Enough with the chit-chat let’s get started.

Ingredients:

3 Tablespoons Butter

10oz. Mini marshmallows

6 Cups Rice Krispies

Food Coloring

Midget Tootsie Rolls

Green Frosting – To make it easy buy the can with the different tops.

Directions:

Once the butter has melted start pouring the marshmallows into the pan and continuously stir until they are melted, turn the heat off. Once the marshmallows are melted add food coloring (Red and Yellow) and make a bright orange coloring.

Once the coloring is right start to add the Rice Krispies and mix into the melted marshmallows. It’s important to add some cooking spray to the spoon you use when mixing or it will get sticky.

Once all the Rice Krispies are mixed in it is then time to get a little messy. Spray your hands with cooking spray or Crisco or butter and start grabbing the mixture and forming a small pumpkin ball.

Once all the pumpkin balls have been formed grab the green frosting can and if you get the easy can with different tops use the “Leaf” top and spray a little right across the top of the ball.

After the pumpkins have their leaves it’s time to start adding the stem. I found the whole midget Tootsie roll was too long so I cut them in half. Once that’s done you will have a perfect pumpkin patch, that taste even better than they look!
