Rice Krispy Treat Pumpkins!

Because Halloween treats don’t have to be all about apples and caramel…

You’re going to need:

  • • A home-made batch of Rice Krispy Treats NOT formed in a pan – you will do the forming.
  • • Orange Wilton Candy Melts
  • • Pretzel sticks (rods)
  • • Sprinkles
  • • Optional: mustaches (I found mine in the party section – labeled as “Table Scatter”)

These take a little time and careful handling (hot, melted marshmallows – careful!).

Make a batch of Rice Krispy Treats per package directions. While still warm, spray your hands with cooking oil (canola, whatever)… take a big scoop of gooey treat matter and form into a ball.

Set aside and form another. Go back to balls that have been set aside and make sure the balls are still in balls.

Hey. Life. It happens.

You may need to re-ball a few, but as the mix cools, the form will stay. While the ball is still a bit pliable, take about an inch or two of pretzel stick and make a hole for the ‘stem’. Set aside.

Spread melted orange candy onto the ball. Sprinkle with sprinkles. Add the stem back in that hole you made when the Rice Krispy Treat was warm. You may need to add a bit of melted candy to base of stem to get it to stick in firmly.

And BOOM… pretty darn yummy and impressive rice krispy treat pumpkins!
