1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 (10-ounce) package miniature marshmallows

6 cups crisp rice cereal

6 drops yellow food color

6 drops red food color


Green decorator frosting or gel

Mini chocolate roll candies, cut in half


Shape about 1 cup cereal mixture into round shape, using buttered measuring cup to portion out mixture. Press mini chocolate roll candy halves into top of pumpkin.

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium-low heat; add marshmallows. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes or until melted and smooth. Remove from heat; stir in yellow and red food color. Stir in cereal until well coated. Let mixture cool 5 minutes.

Press butter knife edge into sides of crispy balls to create indentations on sides to resemble pumpkin.

Pipe green frosting around stem to create vines.

Recipe Tips 

Use buttered hands to shape cereal mixture into round shape to avoid sticking. 

For a more intense color, substitute paste or gel food color in place of liquid food color.
