- 1 package (10 1/2 ounces) mini-marshmallows
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- Red and yellow gel food coloring
- 6 cups crisp rice cereal
- 6 Popsicle sticks
- 3 mini Tootsie Rolls, cut in half widthwise
- 3 miniature green apple Air-Head candies, cut lengthwise into thin strips
- Black decorating gel
In a large saucepan, combine marshmallows, butter and salt. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until melted. Remove from heat; tint orange with red and yellow food coloring. Stir in cereal.
With buttered hands, shape mixture into six balls. Insert a Popsicle stick into each ball. Press half of a Tootsie Roll “stem” into the top of each. Roll Air-Head strips between hands to form vines; press into each pumpkin near stem. Make jack-o-lantern faces with decorating gel.
