Happy Fall!

I can't even look at the day of my last post. Please hang in there with me! I miss my blog and have to do more frequent post! I have some recipes coming up and can't wait to share them! Here are some little treats I made for a party over the weekend.  I made one batch of rice crispy treats and then added some Americolor gel in the orange color. I wasn't going to add red/yellow food coloring and try to get the color just right, but you certainly could! Once the marshmallows were melted I added the food coloring. I tried a few different ways of molding my pumpkins but found the best way for me was while the mixture was still warm, I placed about a half a cup of the mixture in muffin tins. When they were slightly cool, I was able to mold them a little easier. I made some icing using some butter, powder sugar and milk and then attached the Rolo to the top of each pumpkin. Super easy and they were a hit at the party!
