PUMPKIN SHAPED RICE KRISPIE TREATS

Fall is rolling in and Halloween is right around the corner! It’s that wonderful time of the year with lots of fun reasons to get together and celebrate! It’s always fun to have something homemade when visiting with friends or planning a party at your home, but you don’t want to spend hours working in the kitchen just to create something to enjoy. That’s why you’ll love this Pumpkin Pops recipe – it’s yummy, adorable, and is really easy to make!
This treat gives you a simple twist on classic rice crispy treats that will make it feel like a whole new treat.

HOW TO MAKE RICE KRISPIE HALLOWEEN PUMPKINS:

Start by melting butter in a medium stockpot. Add in your marshmallows and continue to stir until the marshmallows melt and are well combined with your butter.

When the marshmallows are melted, remove your pot from the heat and quickly stir in your rice crispy cereal and mix until all the cereal is coated with marshmallows. Press your mixture into a 9×9 pan that has been prepared with cooking spray so your treats don’t stick. You can use a piece of wax paper to press down on the top of your treats to make them even and smooth on the top. Let the treats cool completely before your next step.

After your treats have cooled, remove the sheet of crispy treats from the pan and place them onto a cutting board. Use a pumpkin cookie cutter, or your own favorite shape if you want to branch out.

Melt half a bag of candy melts in a small bowl following the directions on the package. When your chocolate is smooth, dip one end of a lollipop stick, popsicle stick, or paper straw into the chocolate. Then, gently press it into the bottom of your pumpkin shaped treat. You can finish off the treat by drizzling chocolate over the pumpkin or leave them plain.
