I’m pretty sure that my love of all things Fall and pumpkin has been made pretty clear over the past few weeks. If not, here is one more pumpkin-post to solidify my love of Fall 🙂
These Pumpkin Spice Rice Krispies Treats are a great Fall treat for kids…or anyone, really! They are so cute and festive, and best of all they are pretty simple to make.
What you will need:
*6 cups of Rice Krispies Cereal
*(1) 10 oz bag of marshmallows
*6 tablespoons of butter (you can use less, but they taste far more delicious this way)
*2 tsp Pumpkin Spice
*a few drops of vanilla extract
*orange food coloring
*Mini Tootsie Rolls
*Green and Black frosting
*Over medium heat, melt butter and marshmallows in a in a large pot. Once melted, add in pumpkin spice, vanilla extract, and orange food coloring. Turn off the heat.
*Mix in Rice Krispies cereal and stir until they are well coated and a lovely orange color
*Let the mixture stand on the stove to cool for about 30 minutes
*Once cooled, roll into balls to become pumpkins.
*Use green frosting to draw leaves on the pumpkins
*Stick the Tootsie Rolls into the top of the pumpkins as the stems
*Use black frosting to draw on pumpkin faces (if desired)
