pumpkin rice krispie treats

Hey ya’ll

Well usually I like to give you clean eats and treats we can share with the family but this Thanksgiving I wanted to stop by and give you a special treat that you can do as a craft with your kids and the family will enjoy.

Warning!!! I am about to use lots of butter and food coloring so call the health police…lol

Here is a pic and list of the ingredients.Ingredients


  • 5 Cups Rice Krispies
  • 40 Jet Puffed Marshmallows
  • 6 Tbs Butter
  • Orange Food Coloring (gel type better)
  • tootsie rolls
  • green leaf decorations (local craft store in cake dec section)
  • cupcake sheets

Here is a video of me making them step by step… It is long and the lighting is bad but you get the point.


Heat butter on low heat in a pot

Stir in marshmallows

Add food coloring (enough for your liking)

Stir in cereal

After coating cereal thoroughly in the marshmellow and butter mixture turn off heat.

As it is cooling a bit… roll into balls

Add a tootsie roll at the top for the stem and green leaf

VOILA… Thanksgiving holiday Rice Krispie Treats that are delicious and super cute 🙂
