Cooking with Anya: Rice Krispie Treat Pumpkin

Even though it has been almost 2 months since Anya started kindergarten I am still not used to her being gone all day. I miss having her around the house and I miss not having a lot of time to do special projects with her. Yesterday while she was at school this idea popped into my head and I thought it would be a great cooking craft for her when she got home. You can't really get much easier than rice krispie treats! Quick, easy, and super cute!!!

What Anya had to say:

This was a tasty treat. It was fun. The part that was the most fun was when my mommy sprayed Pam on my hands and it was so funny because the rice krispies stuck to my hands and I ate my hands. It was a very fun activity and the part that was even funner was when I decorated it and put the chocolate bar on the top for the stem. And then I decorated the eyes, hair, ears, nose and mouth with black rectangle licorices. It was the funnest food baking ever. My favorite part was when I ate it. The end.

Rice Krispie Pumpkin
3 TBSP butter
4 cups mini-marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies
Orange Food Coloring
Candy or frosting for decorating

Melt butter and marshmallows in pan. Mix in food coloring until desired color is reached. Stir in Rice Krispies and mix to combine.

Spray a bowl with cooking spray and press krispie mix into bowl. Let sit until cool and molded.

Turn out onto plate and decorate!
