Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats!

Once I saw these Pumpkin Rice Krispie treats I knew I had to make them! They are super simple to make, and combine two of my favorite things: Pumpkins & Rice Krispies! Let's get started!

What you need:
1 Stick of Butter
2 1/2 (10 oz.) Bags of Marshmallows (Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows are now available!!)
12 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1 tsp . Yellow Food Coloring
1/4 tsp. Red Food Coloring
One bag of Tootsie Rolls

Melt the butter on low heat in a large pot
Stir marshmallows in melted butter until dissolved

Mini Marshmallows are easier to work with!
Add food coloring to the butter & marshmallow mixture.
Stir until the entire mixture is the same color orange.
Mix Rice Krispies into the orange marshmallow mix until they are fully coated!

Lovely, right?!
Here is the "tricky" part. The Rice Krispie mix will be hot and sticky! I spooned generous sized balls onto aluminum foil and let them sit for about a minute. Once they cooled down a little bit, I was able to shape them into "pumpkins" with my hands. I then stuck a tootsie roll in the top to make a stem!
I made about 25 pumpkins...not including the ones we "taste tested"!


Good Luck & let me know how your's turn out!!
