Halloween is right around the corner and so are the ghoulish parties that come with this holiday. Whether you are planning a sophisticated party for your closest friends or the bash of the century, these treats are sure to tickle your taste buds.

The first item on the menu is crispy rice jack-o-lanterns.

The ingredients are:
1 stick butter
2 10 oz packages marshmallows
12 cup rice crispy cereal
1 teaspoon yellow food color
1/4 teaspoon red food color
green decorating icing in tube
black decorating icing in tube
decorating tips
12 cup bowl (not plastic)

Preparation:
Melt butter on low heat and add marshmallows. Stir marshmallows frequently. When marshmallows have dissolved, add food colors and mix well. When the marshmallow mixture is uniform in orange color, add cereal and stir and mix until rice crispies are completely coated.

Pour mixture into the bowl that has been well sprayed with a non-stick spray. Carefully press down cereal (spray the spoon or your hands when pressing the cereal, this helps so the cereal will not stick). Place into the refrigerator until completely chilled and firm. When the pumpkin is chilled, remove from refrigerator and invert onto a plate. Remove bowl and decorate with leaves and stem. A great jack o lantern smile will be the finishing touch.

This jack-o-lantern is a great snack to make for your friends, and it makes a great decoration for your Halloween party.
