Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats

For our Halloween lunch at work, I promised a co-worker who follows me on Pinterest that I would make these.  They were a huge hit and very easy.

I pinned the post from Grin & Bake It

My tray of pumpkins
3 Tbsp. butter
5 cups Rice Krispies
1 bag (8 oz.) Kraft Pumpkin Marshmallows
Tootsie Roll
Orange or Red and Yellow Food Coloring
A can of green icing

Melt butter in a large saucepan.  Add marshmallows and stir until melted.  Remove from heat.  Add a few drops of food coloring and stir to combine.  Add rice krispies and stir thoroughly until coated.  Let sit 3-5 minutes.

Waiting for the mixture to cool enough to from balls.
To make pumpkins:  spray hands with Pam cooking spray and form the mixture into balls.  Insert a tootsie roll that your husband unpeeled for you into the ball and press mixture against it so that it sits firmly in place.  Once firm, use the appropriate tip to pipe icing for the stem.


  1. Seriously? Those things would meet the same fate as the 'burned brownies' I'm afraid! Teehee

  2. They did! Everyone at work grabbed at least one!
