      • Add red and yellow food coloring to the marshmallow mixture. I use a 1:3 ratio; one part red drops to three parts yellow drops. Mix well then add additional food coloring as needed to achieve orange.

      • Pour orange marshmallow mixture over the Rice Krispies then mix until the cereal is covered. (To keep my mixing spoon or spatula from sticking too much I spray it with cooking spray first.)

      • Form Pumpkin Rice Krispies by shaping a heaping scoop of the cereal mixture into a ball. Mine are a little bit smaller than a baseball. (Again, to keep the cereal from sticking to my hands I spray a light coat of cooking spray on them.)
      • Place the treats onto a sheet of parchment paper or wax paper.

  • Before the balls have set press one mini Kit Kat bar & a green M&M into the top of each Pumpkin Rice Krispies Treat to create a stem and leaf.
