A word of warning, this dessert recipe can be a bit messy to make and can get all over everything if you don't follow the directions. It will most likely take you a few tries to figure out how to properly roll them, but once you do, this fun recipe for kids will go fast. You'll want to follow the step by step instructions to get the recipe figured out how to get the Rice Krispie balls not to stick. The trick is that every time you roll one of the little pumpkins, you want to roll both of your hands with some vegetable oil. Fill a small bowl with about 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, and you want to pretty much dip your hands into it and rub it all over the fronts and backs of your hands. You don't want your hands to be dripping or anything, but they should be generously coated. And be sure to coat hands in oil after rolling every single pumpkin. So if you plan to make these yourself, you want to be prepared. It's a good idea to get the kids to help decorate them with the candy to lessen the overall mess left behind.

For this fun recipe for kids you will need Rice Krispies, butter, marshmallows, food coloring, mini Rolo's, and green M&M's. For this dessert recipe idea you are pretty much just making regular Rice Krispie treats, except that before you add in the Rice Krispies as you normally would you are going to add in some food coloring. The amount of food coloring you need will depend on the type of food coloring you use, so it's a good idea to start with only a couple drops of each color to get it right. It might take a bit of adjusting a couple of times, but when you get it to the desired color you'll be ready to move on with the dessert recipe. You can either use an orange food coloring or you can try mixing some red with some yellow (you'll need more yellow than red). You’re going to have to experiment until you get exactly the color for the pumpkins that you want.
