These pumpkin popsicles are so easy to make! Start by putting your marshmallows, butter and colouring into a large microwave safe bowl.
Gently microwave on half power for thirty seconds at a time until your marshmallows have gone soft and melty.
Mix it all up until it’s smooth and blended. Add more colouring to give a deep orange if needed and stir again.
Add your Rice Krispies into your orange marshmallow mix and stir well until they are all coated. Lightly grease your hands and roll the mix into pumpkin shaped rounds.
Push a green jelly bean into the top of each Rice Krispie treat to make a pumpkin stalk.
Put each Rice Krispie Pumpkin treat onto a popsicle stick and finish off your fun Halloween popsicles by drawing on a spooky face with black writing icing.
How To Display Your Pumpkin Popsicles – Rice Krispie Treats
A top tip for displaying your Pumpkin Popsicle Rice Krispie Treats is to hold them upright in plastic cups. To keep them from falling over and sticking to each other I packed a plastic cup with flour. I filled it a quarter at a time and pushed the flour down each time so it was nice and tight.
I hope your kids will enjoy making these Halloween Pumpkin Popsicles!
