Do your kids love Rice Krispie treats? If so, they will love making these Pumpkin Shaped Rice Krispies.
Ingredients Pumpkin Shaped Rice Krispies
To make this Pumpkin shaped Rice Krispies, you will need can Rice Krispies, pumpkin marshmallows, butter, and pumpkin flavor baking chips.
I found a recipe from Kellogg’s Rice Krispies website for a Pumpkin Shaped Rice Krispy treat that I substituted Pumpkin Flavored Marshmallows and Toll House Pumpkin Spice Baking Chips, which I found at my local Walmart. Use pumpkin marshmallows for the regular ones. I also covered the pumpkins with the Pumpkin Spice Baking Chips I melted in the microwave. I made two batches, one with the coating and one without the melted pumpkin coating. We added candy for eyes, nose, and stem, and a little icing I colored green for vines. We used candy corn, Twix for the branches, M & M’s for the eyes, and candy corn for the nose. They turned out cute and delicious.
To make the Rice Krispies round, I use a jumbo ice cream scoop. The directions say after you butter your hands use a 1/2 cup of Rice Krispies and form it into a ball. Allow the Rice Krispies to dry before covering them with the melted pumpkin chips. We also let me dry a few minutes before adding the candy faces.
I will tell you my big kids, ages 12 to 23, were having too much fun. They gave the pumpkins ears and three-dimensional noses and more. I decided NOT to pictures their silliness.
