- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
