What You Need
1small bag10.5 oz mini marshmallows
5cupscrisp rice cereal
chocolate tootsie rolls
green lime flavored tootsie rolls
orange gel food coloring
nonstick cooking spray
In a mixing bowl, add marshmallows and butter. Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds until marshmallows puff up and are about double in size. Remove from oven and stir well until butter is melted. Stir in a generous amount of orange gel food coloring.
Pour cereal into mixture with marshmallows and mix well to evenly coat.
Place wax paper onto a flat surface.
Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray (don't avoid this step). Grab a handful of cereal mixture and shape into a ball, a little smaller than a baseball. Press firmly to shape and place onto wax paper. Once all your pumpkins have been made, set aside.
Microwave 2 chocolate tootsie rolls at a time for five seconds. Shape and squish the rolls into a stem-like shape and press firmly onto the pumpkins.
Microwave 3 lime flavored tootsie rolls for 5 seconds. Cut in half and shape into a leaf. Press firmly onto the pumpkin next to the stem. To create a vine, take one green tootsie roll and make a snake shape. Flatten the end to resemble a leaf. Press one end of the "snake" onto the stem and twist it around to create a curly q. Press other end gently onto pumpkin.
