Although I love being in the kitchen the whole year round, kicking off holiday baking season with Halloween treats makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I love holiday baking recipes!
This year was especially fun because Kraft Foods sent me a huge box of Halloween goodies to inspire me (as if the Kraft Recipes site wasn’t enough…)
But I happily dove into the box and made a delightful treat for all ages: Pumpkin Crispies.
15 JET-PUFFED Jumbo Pumpkin marshmallows
2 Tbsp butter
1 3-oz box orange JELL-O (I used sugar-free)
5 cups crispy rice cereal
Melt butter over low heat on stovetop. Add marshmallows and stir frequently until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in JELL-O powder; mix well. Add crispy rice cereal and mix until ingredients are evenly dispersed.
With buttered hands, take small amounts of the cereal mix and form into balls. Place on waxed paper to cool.
Once you have your little orange ball of yumminess, you can turn it into a jack-o-lantern. I used little candy pieces, but you could use decorating gel, melted chocolate, licorice strings, gumdrops, anything really.
They’re also cute without faces and I left more than half of them that way.
