Jack-O’-Lantern Pops


  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
