Select ingredients:


  1. Lightly coat a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the marshmallows and vanilla and stir until completely smooth, about 2-4 minutes. Add the Rice Krispies and stir until the cereal is thoroughly coated. Let cool slightly before handling.
  2. Lightly grease hands with nonstick cooking spray. Form the cereal mixture into roughly 3/4 cup balls, and then shape into a pumpkin. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining cereal mixture. Press a pretzel stick into the top of each pumpkin to resemble a stem.
  3. Pipe green icing around the base of the pretzels to resemble leaves and vines. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Tip: Remove the pretzel sticks and green icing to create traditional Rice Krispie treats! Simply press the Rice Krispies and marshmallow mixture into a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before slicing and serving.

Substitute: Substitute Apple Jacks for Rice Krispies to create an ultra sweet treat!

Substitute: When available, substitute Rice Krispies Shocking Orange Colored Cereal for Rice Krispies and remove orange food coloring!
