I bake cookies every Monday for my kidos to snack on after school, today I decided to do something a little different, I surprised them with these pumpkin rice krispie treats. Not only are these incredibly easy to make, but they are fun to eat. Definitely something your kids can help out with.
3 TB Butter
6 Cups rice krispie cereal
10 oz mini marshmallows
Orange food coloring
brown chocolate candies: I used mini peanut butter cups
green candies for leaf: I used skittles
-Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat.
-Add marshmallows and store until melted.
-Reduce the heat to low and put a few drops of food coloring into the melted marshmallows and stir until combined.
-Remove from heat and stir in the cereal and mix well.
-Using slightly greased hands, shape into small sized balls. Place on a sheet lined with parchment paper. Add the candies on top. I melted each piece of the chocolate for a second or two on the side of the hot pot, that way, it stuck onto the pumpkin when it cooled.
