Rice Krispie Pumpkins

Inspired by Pinterest, I set out to create these Rice Krispie Pumpkins!  As usual, what looks easy on Pinterest sometimes isn’t so, and making these pumpkins was a little trial and error.  Learn from me and wait a bit for the gooey Rice Krispie mess to cool before trying to roll it into balls!
