Pumpkin Patch Perfect – Halloween Rice Krispie Treats

halloween food 6

Rice Krispies can come in handy when wanting to create fun Halloween treats.  Shape them into a ball, add half a tootsie roll for a stem and a piece of green fruit roll up for a leaf, and you can easily simulate a pumpkin.  These are going to be a big hit at the neighbor bash at the end of October.  Once again, we have to offer up thanks to Jen at Cincy Shopper for her recipe.  Simply too cute . . . thanks, Jen!
