October really kicks off the holiday season; from costumes to treats. There’s sure to be something you fancy. I love them all (the costumes and the treats) and sometimes I go all out.
Many times, holiday treats end up being really difficult and about halfway in I’m cursing myself for picking such a difficult recipe. However, this is not one of those recipes. (I wouldn’t put that on you.) These Spooktacular Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkins are SO cute and best of all, they’re SO easy to make! (Maybe just a little messy.)
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes Serving Size: 12
Red and Yellow Liquid Food Coloring
Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper
Make the pumpkins: *Now this is where you’ll want to use my TIP below and coat your hands generously with oil.*
Begin rolling the Rice Krispie mixture into small balls. Place them onto the parchment paper leaving space between them. While the pumpkins are still warm, gently press a Mini Rolo into the top of each pumpkin for the stem and add a green M&M beside it as the leaf.
Serve: Allow pumpkins to cool until firm and then your cute Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats are ready to share!
TIP: Rub coconut oil, vegetable oil, avocado oil…basically whatever kind of oil you want to use, on your hands to prevent Rice Krispies from sticking to you as you roll them.
