Cereal Pumpkins

Puffed Rice Pumpkins
So easy, so fun for the kids!

3 Tablespoons butter
40 Large marshmallows (10oz bag) or 4 cups of small ones
7 cups of puffed rice cereal

In a large, heavy pan, slowly melt the butter.
Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until melted.
Add the cereal and stir until coated.  
Remove from the heat.
Butter your hands and a cookie sheet.
(let cool slightly if kids are going to form them)
Form the mixture into pumpkin shape.
While warm, add a pumpkin top and press into the top.
When cool, store in tupperware or individual sandwich bags.

You can add orange food coloring to the marshmellow mixture before adding cereal to tint it orange.  
You can also add candy corn faces using frosting to attach.
