  • 2 tbsp ChildLife Essentials® Liquid Vitamin C
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
  • 3 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 (10 oz) pkg. mini marshmallows
  • orange gel food coloring
  • 3 pretzel rods, end portions broken off into 2-inch pieces (so, you’ll have 6 pieces)
  • 6 mini green airheads
  • non-stick cooking spray


  1. Measure out Rice Krispies cereal and pour into a bowl. Melt butter in a 4-quart non-stick saucepan over medium-low heat.
  2. Add marshmallows and stir. As they begin to melt, start adding in the gel food coloring until desired color is achieved. Stir constantly until marshmallows have melted.
  3. Remove from heat then immediately pour in rice krispies cereal and gently stir and fold with a spatula until cereal is evenly coated. Let the mixture cool slightly (until it’s cool enough to handle with your hands). Add ChildLife Essentials® Liquid Vitamin C to this mix!
  4. Spray hands with non-stick cooking spray then shape rice krispie treat mixture into balls about the size of a baseball, then insert 1 piece of the pretzel rod into the top center and reshape the pumpkin as needed. Transfer to a plate or dish sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
  5. Beginning on one side of the airhead candy cut out a leaf shape with clean scissors then use the remaining portion of the piece of candy to roll and shape into a thin rope shape. Twist into a vine shape (or just shape the fondant accordingly, no cutting required).
  6. Place candy on the sides of each pretzel on the pumpkin
  7. Repeat with remaining candy and enjoy!
