Ingredients for this Easy Fall Treat

ingredients pumpkin patch marshmallow bites
  • Marshmallows – I bought regular size – not miniature or giant. If you want, you can get giant marshmallows for some extra decorating surface but it’s not really necessary
  • Brown chocolate melts – I used to buy my melting chocolate at Michael’s Craft store, but now you can order it off of Amazon, or find it at Walmart, as well. Melting chocolates are typically found in the cake-decorating aisle of stores
  • Oreo Cookies – crushed – You’ll probably use only a portion of the package. You can use the rest to dip into some milk at another time. Yum!
  • Pumpkin soft candies – These are usually easily found in the fall. It’s usually about mid-August that they start popping up in stores
  • Green Frosting – This will be used to make the vines for the pumpkins. Usually in pumpkin patches, vines curl around the field and up to pumpkins. You can use a piping bag and a writing tip to draw vines onto the marshmallow bites

Expert Tip for These Fall Treats

Make sure to decorate your marshmallow bites while the chocolate is still melted. Once the chocolate dries it becomes hard and you’ll need to use the melted chocolate to help attach decorations

If chocolate is too hard to add more toppings, dip the toppings into melted chocolate and it will act as glue. Add the decorations with the melted chocolate on the bottom. The chocolate should dry and harden to hold your toppings in place

To place frosting into the piping bag, first fold the piping bag over in half to make it a shorter area to fill. Use a spoon to scoop frosting into the piping bag

Once you have the frosting in place, twist the middle of the bag so none escapes out of the top

Melting Chocolate

I usually melt the chocolates in the microwave for 1 minute and then remove the bowl

I use a silicone spatula to stir the warmed chocolate

If there are still lumps of hardened chocolate, place the bowl back into the microwave for about 30 more seconds

Stir until smooth

S’mores – milk chocolate melts, crushed graham crackers
