Easy and YUMMY little pumpkins

Here's an easy and festive after-school snack even little ones can help make: rice krispy treat pumpkins! I'm honestly not sure how pumpkiny they really look, but they're cute and full of sugary goodness.

To make your own, simply mix up some rice krispy treats according to the directions. Butter any little hands that might be helping and roll the treats into small balls. Add a candy corn for the stem and roll in orange sugar crystals to finish.

No need to wash those buttery mitts, just snatch one up and dig in. Yum!

It's Pumpkin Time!Here's a colorful Halloween book perfect for preschoolers and toddlers. Forget ghosts and witches, this holiday book starts in the springtime as two children plant and tend a pumpkin patch, eagerly awaiting their future jack-o-lantern to grow. Painted paper collages will capture the attention of even very young children while the simple and educational text will introduce kids to the life-cycle of our favorite fall squash!


  1. Yummy, 2 of my favorite things...rice crispy treats and candy corn!

  2. What a great treat. I love the candy corn stem.

  3. Those are so cute - and they do look quite pumpkiny, and very sweet!

  4. I love this snack! I'm trying to come up with a couple of fun Halloween treats for a party I'm attending Saturday night and these would be perfect!

  5. Great minds think alike. I've been meaning to make something similar, only using orange jello instead like this recipe. http://jillybeanzthingz.blogspot.com/2010/09/tasty-thursday-krispy-apple-treats.html


More Fun...
