I saw this idea that I liked on Pinterest so thought it was worth a shot.. I give you: Rice Crispy Pumpkins!
Basically you make Rice Crispy’s, and then roll them into balls and add some half-tootsie-rolls for stems.
Now, the instructions I found said to form them while it was still warm but… well… that ends up really sticky. So I let it cool a little bit and used utensils to aid in the shaping. Oh, and the coloring is created by a careful mix of food coloring when you have the melted marshmallows.
It took some time, but the results are fun and delicious!
Of course, Halloween had to include some mud pies! Good old pudding and chocolate cookie crumbs with gummy worms. I made mine with butterscotch pudding (because I like it better than chocolate), Gluten-Free Cookies (that I crunched up in plastic bags) and gummy worms. Yum!
And, because I want to make sure that things are festive, let me combine them all for a bit of a centerpiece:
