Everybody loves Rice Krispie treats - kids, teens, and adults. Who can resist the ooey gooey marshmallow with a little crunch and sweetness?
This recipe for Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats is both adorable and delicious. Warm Rice Krispie treats are beautifully moldable, and easy to turn into mini pumpkins with a couple of kids helping out. Roll into a ball, stick in a Tootsie Roll and the "stem," and these are good to eat. Enjoy!

- 3 tablespoons butter
- 10 ounces marshmallows (approximately 1 bag)
- Red and yellow food coloring (to make orange color)

Melt your butter in a large sauce pan over low heat.
Add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
Remove from heat.
Add approx 4 drops of red food coloring and 2 drops yellow food coloring (add coloring until you have a nice bright orange color).
