I had never made Rice Krispie Treats before, and this was a very pleasing result for a first time experience. I served mine in a smaller than 9x13 dish (not sure of the exact measurements), and they were very thick. I also arranged the pumpkins in rows of four (one on each treat), making it look like a little pumpkin patch. It was adorable.

These were great. I had to sub orange marshmallow peanut candies for the pumpkins as they only come out around Halloweentime. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly.
