How To Make Pumpkin Rice Crispy Treats

  • Measure out rice krispies cereal and pour into a bowl. Melt butter in a non-stick saucepan or pot over medium-low heat.  
  • Add marshmallows and stir and as they begin to melt start adding in the gel food coloring until desired color is achieved. Stir constantly until marshmallows have melted.  
  • Remove from heat then immediately pour in rice krispies cereal and gently stir and fold with a spatula until cereal is evenly coated. Let mixture cool slightly (until it’s cool enough to handle with your hands). 
  • Spray hands with non-stick cooking spray then shape rice krispie treat mixture into balls about the size of a baseball, then insert 1 piece of the pretzel stick into the top center. Transfer to a plate or dish sprayed lightly with cooking spray. 
  • Use the green gel icing to make leaves and vines on the treats
  • Repeat with each treat. Store in an airtight container.
