Rice Krispies Pumpkin Treats

By Gia McBride

I made these for the kids last year and they loved them.  They are easy and delicious.

Rice Krispies Pumpkin Treats


3   cups mini marshmallows
5   cups Rice Krispes
2   tablespoons butter
yellow and red food coloring
fresh mint leaves
semi sweet chocolate chip mini morsels


1.  Slowly melt butter in a large saucepan.  Add marshmallows and stir until fully melted.  Remove from heat.

2.  Add food coloring, per the instructions on box, to make marshmallows pumpkin orange.    

3.  Add Rice Krispies and mix well.  Allow to cool slightly.

4.  Using clean damp hands, form Rice Krispies into Pumpkin shaped balls.  (Damp hands help prevent sticking)  Allow to cool and harden.

5.  Place one mint leaf on each pumpkin as a stem and use chocolate chips to create fun faces.
