Crispy Marshmallow Pumpkin Treats

Today with my own two and “the after school crew”, we had some sticky fun! I usually only buy generic, so we used Millville Crisp Rice Cereal from Aldi and followed the box directions for Marshmallow Crisp Bars.  Our variation came when we changed up the routine and used Baker’s Corner Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows (also from Aldi).  These gave us the orange color we were looking for and a little pumpkin flavor, too!  When the mixture was done on the stove, I sprayed each of the kids hands with non-stick cooking spray, gave them a generous piece of parchment paper (did not have wax paper) and a big heap of the ooey, gooey, crispy, orange mixture.  Their task: form it into a pumpkin-shaped ball and decorate.  We used Lime Flavored Tootsie Rolls for the stems, along with Smarties, Dots, and M&Ms.  Some decorations stuck better than others.  We made one for Daddy, too!
