Today, my daughter asked for some marshmallows. When I gave her a handful,  I noticed that they were less than fresh so I needed to use them up as soon as possible. Right then, on a whim, I made some Rice Krispy Treats. I used this quick {less mess} microwave recipe. As I was about to set them in the pan to cool into squares, I thought to myself, “No, lets make something fun and festive for fall.” I had some candy corn in the pantry so I shaped the Rice Krispy Treats into pumpkins then used the candy corn as the stem. They were festive but still a little boring.Butterfinger Rice Krispy Treats Shaped as Pumpkins I wanted some chocolate, caramel, color or something. COLOR! YES!
