6 cups Rice Krispies

Green M&M’s
1/4 cup cooking oil or melted butter in a small bowl

How to make Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkins

Step 1: Place a large pot on the stove and turn the heat to low.

Step 2: Add the butter and allow it to melt.

Step 3: Add the marshmallows and stir until well mixed with the butter.

Step 4: Remove the pot from the heat. Add droplets of yellow food colouring into the mixture
followed by the colour red and stir every drop until you achieve your preferred colour.

Step 5: Stir in the Rice Krispies.

Step 6: Rub oil or butter all over your hands. Get a load of the Rice Krispie mixture and form
small balls out of it.

Step 7: Place the balls on a parchment paper.

Step 8: Add a Mini Rolo on top of each pumpkin as stem and green M&M for the leaf.

Step 9: Let them cool at room temperature to harden.


If you are going to use gloves, you don’t need to oil it up to prevent the balls from sticking. They don’t stick on gloves.
