-6 cups of Kellog’s Gluten Free Rice Krispies (Make sure it says Gluten Free on the box!)
-4 cups of miniature marshmallows
-Black and Green icing pens
-Orange Food Coloring
-3 tbsp of Earth Balance buttery spread (or whatever your fav dairy-free spread is)
You will also need:
– 1 Large Bowl
-1 3D Pumpkin Mold
-Wax Paper or Foil
1. Adults: Prepare the work space. Clean the pumpkin mold and have the ingredients handy and pre-measured for your little helpers.
Kids: Wash your hands, roll up your sleeves and put on your apron if you have one. Pour your Rice Krispies cereal into the large bowl.
2. Adults: Melt 3 Tbsp of ‘butter’ over low heat in a medium saucepan. When the butter is melted, add your marshmallows and stir constantly until the marshmallows are
completely melted. Remove from heat and stir in a few drops of your orange food coloring. (Do one at a time, until you get a bright orange color) Pour your
mixture into the bowl over your cereal and mix until your mixture is evenly coated. Let the mixture sit for about 5 mins or so while you check out the ideas the
kids came up with.
Kids: Think about what faces you want your pumpkins to have. Sketch some ideas on paper with your favorite crayons, colored pencils or markers.
3. Adults/Kids: Press a small handful of your mixture into your mold, put your wax paper or foil over the mold and flip. Lift the mold to reveal your pumpkin! Repeat this
step until you run out of your mixture.
*Tip: It helps to spray your hands and the mold with cooking spray or coat them both with a little bit of the buttery spread you used.*
4. Adults/Kids: Decorate your pumpkins will spooky or silly faces. Have fun!
Enjoy! Have a safe and super fun Halloween!
