  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 40 regular marshmallows
  • 1 box crispy rice cereal (I used Rice Krispies)
  • orange food coloring
  • celery (or Tootsie Rolls)
  • chocolate chunks or chocolate chips

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add 40 regular-sized marshmallows (10 ounces) and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  2. Add 6 drops of orange food coloring and stir in completely. Continue to add in food coloring until desired color is achieved.
  3. Add in 6 cups of crispy rice cereal and stir to coat well.
  4. Spray your hands with cooking spray and begin to form 3-inch balls. Place them on a cooking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cool completely.
  5. Use a piece of celery or a Tootsie Roll to make the pumpkin stem.
  6. Use chocolate chunks, chocolate chips or other small candies to create a face.
