There’s something about rice krispie treats that just makes me happy. They’re so fun to make and even more fun to eat. My boys loved helping me make these darling little pumpkin shaped ones. They’re really simple to make, too!
Just prepare your basic rice krispie treat recipe (I like to brown my butter a bit and add a little vanilla extract) but add in orange food coloring when you put in the marshmallows. Let the cereal mixture cool a bit and then shape into balls.
Press a little tootsie roll into the top to make a stem and then add some candy to make the eyes and noses – get creative! I love that these can be Halloween pumpkins by making them look like jack-o-lanterns, or leave off the little face and you can make these all the way up to Thanksgiving! They’re a fun treat your family will love to make and to eat!
