Rice Krispie Pumpkins


If you love Rice Krispie Treats like we do, then you probably make them all the time!

We love them.  They are our kryptonite.  As soon as they are cool enough to eat, we start munching and usually finish them off before the night is over!

These pumpkins were the PERFECT excuse to whip up a batch!  Yummy gooey marshmallow treats with a cute Tootsie Roll on top for a stem!

These are a perfect for after school snacks, your next party or even just for edible decorations!  Use up your leftover Halloween candy and make a batch of these tasty treats!



Yield: 8 pumpkin balls
