Craving a sweet treat? Looking for a fun and festive dessert to make with your kids? These ooey, gooey pumpkin shaped treats are just the thing!
Halloween Marshmallow Treats
- 3 Tb. butter
- 1 package (10 oz) marshmallows
- Orange food coloring
- 6 cups rice crisp cereal
- 1 Hershey’s chocolate bar (broken into 12 pieces)
- Green gel icing
- Cooking spray
In a large microwave safe bowl, heat butter and marshmallows on high for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Continue stirring until smooth. Add rice crisp cereal and orange food coloring and stir until incorporated and desired color is achieved.
Using a ½ cup measuring cup coated with cooking spray, divide the cereal mixture into 12 portions. Using buttered hands, shape each portion into a round pumpkin shape. While still soft, stick a piece of chocolate in the top of each pumpkin to serve as the stem (use a butter knife to cut a slot if necessary). Use the green icing to put a vine on each pumpkin. Serve the same day.
