Halloween Marshmallow Treats Recipe

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.

    We love Rice Krispie Treats so I know this recipe will be a hit in our home. So cute for Halloween and easy to make which I like. Of course the chocolate doesn’t

    This is so cute, and looks easy to make. Also love that the candy decorations are not overwhelming. I hate sweets that change the dessert and is loaded with frosting or candy decoration.
