No Tricks All Treats [Recipe]

October 28, 2014

I created these cute little treats last year, but they are just so cute I wanted to share it again in case you didn't get a chance to see them last Halloween. These cute pumpkins would make the best treat for your upcoming Halloween parties or could even act as a great children's activity for those of you who might not be heading out on Halloween night. I seriously had a blast creating these and even had a great arm workout in the process. Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

[makes nine medium sized pumpkins]

1/2 tsp vanilla extract
red & yellow food coloring or orange gel coloring
3 tbsp. butter 
5 1/2 c. mini marshmallows
6 c. crispy rice cereal
Mini tootsie rolls
mini M&M's and candy corn

For this recipe you do as you would making regular rice crispy treats by simply melting your butter in a medium sized pan and then adding the vanilla extract as well as the mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are completely melted and then add the red and yellow food coloring until you get the orange shade you desire. Next you'll combine the crispy rice cereal in your pot and stir until the cereal is evenly coated with your marshmallow mixture. Last but not least, spray your hands with baking spray and roll them into pumpkiny shapes where you'll then decorate them to look like a pumpkin.

I wish I had seen these last week when I was trying what to make for the amazing people that make my coffee (yes, I have a weird relationship with the people that make my coffee every morning).
