I had no problems with this recipe. To all of you that have issues with shaping. Wet your hands with water, not grease or butter. They will easily roll up into a ball. You might have to re-wet your hands a few times in between. They don't affect the taste and its easier to form whatever shape you want.
- 3 tablespoons melted margarine
- 6 cups krispie crispy rice cereal
- 10 ounces miniature marshmallows
- green mike and ike candy
- orange food coloring
Directions See How It's Made
- Melt margarine in large microwave safe bowl. Add marshmallows, and heat again in microwave until soft and fluffy. Put in a few drops of food coloring to achieve desired color. Stir in cereal and mix well. Using lightly greased hands, shape into small handful sized balls. Place onto pan lined with parchment paper and put candy piece in the top for a stem. Pumpkins aren't generally perfectly round, so it makes this a very kid friendly recipe.
