Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats

Melt your butter in a large sauce pan over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until melted. Remove from heat.

Add approx 4 drops of red food coloring & 2 drop yellow food coloring to create a bright orange color. Mix in Rice Krispies.

Form small balls into the shape of a pumpkin. (Tip: Add non-stick cooking spray or Crisco to your hands before forming your balls).

Cut Tootsie Roll in half and add a half into each pumpkin while still warm. Cut small leaves from the green portion of your Fruit Roll Up.
