Category Desserts

Ingredients:

  • 1 (10 oz.) package marshmallows
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • Yellow and red food coloring
  • 6 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 8 small Tootsie Rolls, unwrapped
  • Assorted candies and cake decorating gels

Directions:

Coat a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the marshmallows and butter in a large nonstick pot over medium-low heat and cook for 5 minutes, or until melted and smooth.

Ad

Remove the pot from the heat and add one drop at a time each of red and yellow food color until the mixture reaches the desired orange hue. Add the cereal; stir until combined.

Coat your hands with nonstick cooking spray then shape the cereal mixture into 8 same-sized balls; place on a baking sheet and let stand for 15 minutes.

Press a Tootsie Roll into the top of each to form a stem. Using candies and/or decorating gel, make a jack-o'-lantern face on each crispy rice ball. Serve immediately, or cover loosely until ready to serve.
