Let’s make Halloween Rice Crispy Treats Recipe

Surprise Pumpkin Treats are a perfect Fall treat for your kids this season!  Our family loves Rice Krispie treats of all kinds and enjoy them in different shapes throughout the year.

As a mom, I love that they are an easy, quick recipe, and my boys love that they get to help make them!

Although their shapes may not resemble the shape we are aiming toward, everyone has fun and enjoys a fat-free sweet treat.

My boys especially loved making the Surprise Pumpkins because they would get so excited to find out what was inside their pumpkin, as I would add different small candies into each. They are the perfect treat to toss into a lunch box, a Ziploc bag for a treat at the park, your child’s classroom, or for a playgroup.
