Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats are perfect for any fall gathering or as an easy Halloween dessert
  • Ingredients
  • • ¼ cup butter
  • • 1 (16 oz) bag small marshmallows
  • • 6 cups Rice Krispies
  • • Red & Yellow Liquid Food Coloring
  • • 18 Rolos (caramel filled chocolate candy)
  • • 18 Green M&M's
  • • 2 tablespoons canola oil in a small bowl (to keep mixture from sticking to your hands)
  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over low heat.
  2. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted and combined with the butter.
  3. Remove from the heat. Add several drops of yellow food coloring, mix it together, then add red food coloring one drop at a time, mixing as you go. Add red/yellow drops until you reach your desired color. Mix well.
  4. Add the Rice Krispies and stir to combine.
  5. Coat both sides of your hands with a generous amount of canola oil, and roll the Rice Krispie mixture into 18 balls. Set on parchment paper. Add small amount of oil to your hands after each ball.
  6. While the balls are still warm, gently press a Rolo into the top of each pumpkin for the stem and add a green M&M beside it as the leaf. Allow to cool or refrigerate until firm.
