Crispy Pumpkins
Get started!



1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (10-ounce) package miniature marshmallows

6 drops red food color

6 drops yellow food color

6 cups crisp rice cereal


Green decorator frosting or gel

Mini chocolate roll candies, cut in half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-low heat; add marshmallows. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in red and yellow food color. Stir in cereal until well coated. Let mixture cool 5 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Shape about 1 cup cereal mixture into round shape, using buttered measuring cup to portion out mixture. Repeat with remaining cereal mixture to make 6 pumpkins total.

  3. STEP 3

    Press mini chocolate roll candy halves into top of pumpkins. Press butter knife edge into sides of crispy balls to create indentations on sides to resemble pumpkin.

  4. STEP 4

    Pipe green frosting around stems to create vines.

Tip #1

Use buttered hands to shape cereal mixture into a round shape to avoid sticking.

Tip #2

For a more intense color, substitute paste or gel food color for the liquid food color.
