What You Need:
1 (10 1/2 oz.) pkg. miniature marshmallows
3 T of butter
1/8 t of salt
Red and yellow gel food coloring
6 C of crisp rice cereal
6 Popsicle sticks
3 miniature Tootsie rolls, cut in half
3 miniature green apple Air Head candies, cut into thin strips
Black decorating gel
How to Make It:
Place the marshmallows, butter and salt into a large sauce pan over medium low heat.
Stirring constantly, cook 5 minutes or until completely melted and smooth.
Remove the pan from the heat.
Stir in the red and yellow food coloring until you have reached a pumpkin orange color.
Fold in the cereal and coat well.
Lightly butter your hands and fingers and form the mixture into 6 equal size balls.
Insert 1 Popsicle stick 1/2 way up into each ball.
Place 1/2 of each Tootsie roll on the top of the ball to represent the pumpkin stem.
Roll the Air Head candy strips between your palms to form a vine.
Press the vine into the pumpkin ball as close to the stem as you can, allowing it vine over the edge of the pumpkin.
Make a face on the pumpkin using the black decorating gel.
Allow the pops to cool completely on a wire rack.
These make fun little treats to give out on Halloween. Need more than 6 just double or triple the ingredients. They also make great treats for that Halloween school party or as an after school Halloween snack.
