Rice Krispie Pumpkins




I got this idea from the blog: Home Stories A to Z

When I saw it, I couldn't wait to try it out! 

All you do is:
  • Make Rice Krispie Treats (Recipe here)
  • Before you add the Rice Krispies, add some yellow and red food coloring to make the marshmallow mixture orange.
  • Mix in the cereal.
  • Form into balls.
  • Place half a Tootsie Roll on top for the stem.
  • Pipe green frosting on for the leaves.
(While I was on  the Rice Krispies website, they showed these same pumpkins with a surprise treat in the middle, like a small peanut butter cup or small candy bar. Yummy!!!)



We have a BUNCH more easy and FUN Halloween crafts and activities. Check them out HERE!
