Fun to make and eat these orange colored rice krispie treats are a blast for the kids! Easy instructions and they just need to use a little imagination to get some Halloween fun into action. I left mine goofy looking (smile) try them with other color licorice too and make them all unique~! Check out the video for quick instructions on how to make these!
Tinted orange marshmallows
The mixture is ready to mold, just remember its very hot! Don't use your hands unless you cool it off to the touch first!
Using a meatball scoop I molded these into balls for the pumpkins heads! You can also put them on popsicle sticks.
Here's all you need:
1 recipe of Rice Krispie Treats or see below:
All I do is use 1 -10 ounce bag of marshmallows, 1 stick of butter. Melt the butter add two drops red food coloring and 1 yellow. Use more red for a darker orange coloring.
I used an ice cream or meatball size scoop to make round balls or roll them by hand when marshmallow mixture starts too cool, way too hot to handle when first made!
Tootsie rolls for the stems
Tinted green frosting I used canned with green food coloring.
Tooth picks to make green
Candy eyeballs found at any dollar store or specialty cake shops
red licorice or whatever colors you like for the nose and mouth.
After making them into balls, add the eyes, nose, tootsie roll and frosting, make them any way you want just use your imagination! You can dip them in white chocolate or milk chocolate. You can also make a zig zag mouth. Red frosting like blood. I kept mine less scary the kids are young and it was a fun project. You can use popsicle sticks and place them into styrofoam for a party pops also!
