  1. Make crisped rice cereal treats. Prepare crisped rice cereal treats following recipe directions. Use orange icing color to tint melted marshmallow before mixing.

  2. Shape crisped rice cereal treat. Spray the pumpkin pan with cooking spray and press crisped rice cereal into pan.

  3. Make a pumpkin-shaped platter. Personalize a platter for your crispy rice-n-candy treat! Turn the pan over and place the treat onto a cardboard cake platter. Use an edible color marker to outline the pumpkin cereal on the cake platter, then cut out the pumpkin shape with a one-inch border all around.

  4. Decorate it with candy! Pour yummy black Sixlets (available at Party City stores) or jelly beans into the eyes, nose and mouth to make your crispy rice treat into an extra-sweet candy display. To outline each section, dot orange Sixlets or jelly beans with icing from the orange icing tube and set in place. Finish it off with a cute stem using green fruit slice candies. Serves 12.
